There are more than 160,000 active-duty members serv- ing in 150 countries, leaving behind spouses, children, and parents to con- tinue their duties. It doesn't take much to extend a thoughtful thank you to the men and women who serve our country. While you make your own holiday plans, here are three, meaningful ways to make sure military members aren't forgotten. 1. SPONSOR A WREATH FOR A FALLEN SOLDIER: Wreaths Across America is an organization that purchases and places wreathes on the graves of soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery each December, as well.as veterans' cemeteries in all 50 states and in 24 national cemeteries through0u(the world. Donors can purchase a single wreath for $15 or volunteer to help participate in wreath programs throughout the nation. In 2013, the organization's 22nd year, 540,000 remembrance wreaths were placed on graves - about 143,000 of those at Arlington National Ceme- tery. More than 80 tractor-trailer companies and drivers helped deliver the wreaths to 908 locations across the country. More information can be found at http://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/ 2. DONATE PREPAID CALLING CARDS TO TROOPS ABROAD: It can take months before families in the United States might hear from troops serving overseas. Special missions and living in areas with limited phone service can make the few phone calls they are able to make even more precious. The VFW's Operation Uplink allows people to donate prepaid calling cards to deployed service members. They also host a Free Call Day each month to allow service members to dial in to family mem- bers without worrying about the cost. More information can be found at https://www.vfw.org/ 3. SUPPORT OPERATION GRATITUDE: Every year, Operation Gratitude sends 250,000+ individually addressed Care Packages to Sol- diers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen deployed over- seas, to their children left behind, and to First Responders, New Recruits, Veterans, Wounded Heroes, and their Care Givers. Each package con- tains snacks, hygiene products, entertainment, and handmade items, as well as personal letters of support. Each package contains donated prod- ucts valued between $45 and $100 and cos the organization $15 to as- semble and ship. Find out more at https://www.operationgratitude.com/ A great local option in Walsh County in the Elderly Relief Fund man- aged out of the Country Smokehouse in Grafton. This Fund assists eld- erly folks who are in need of assistance. This Fund also assists many area Veterans. If you would like your support to stay local, donating to this fund is a great option. Thank you all for your service and I hope your hol- idays are merry and bright.
