Get Involved Today! Five Things You Can Do Today To Support Our Troops
1. Follow This Soldier's Example!
Robert Brown, son of Korean and WWII servicemembers also served deployments in Iraq before he was medically retired in 2003. Facing mounting debt and homelessness he was so relieved when he realized that Operation Homefront could help make his difficult situation less stressful. “When I get myself ahead, I’ll donate back,” Robert said. “Operation Homefront is great, I would recommend it to any military person who might need a little extra help to get ahead.” Help Operation Homefront continue to make a difference to those who give so much to us.
2. Volunteer to Help at the Operation Homefront Booth at the 11th Annual Sweet Dreams Festival in Stuarts Draft, VA July 26, 2014
