Our Friends In Uniform



It's been said if you can read this, thank a teacher. It's also been said that if you're reading this in English, thank the United States military.

Christmas has come and gone this year, but if you're so inclined, it's never too late to show our friends in uniform that you care. You can contribute to an organization that benefits the families of those who are serving at home and abroad or make a donation to a Veteran's Hospital in your area. If you're at a loss for how to go about helping, check your phone book for a local VFW hall. They can steer you in the right direction.

Thanks to all the folks who volunteer for organizations like Operation Gratitude, Soldiers' Angels, Any Soldier, and Adopt A Soldier, to name just a few. They can all be accessed via Google on the internet, if you'd like to participate.

These amazing photographs are courtesy of our United States military. Each branch maintains their own website and they constantly update their photo archives with incredible shots of the important work they do. Almost all of their photographs are in the public domain. They're well worth a look.
