As 2009 is rushed to a close, we hope you’ll take a few moments to make a tax-deductible gift to support our men and women in uniform. They make countless sacrifices on our behalf every day. And today, we can let them know they are on our minds and in our hearts.
America’s service men and women have done so much throughout 2009 to serve our country. And we will be asking a great deal of them in the year ahead. Before the clock strikes midnight, let those involved in dangerous duty far from home know that they are not forgotten. Thank you for reaching out to our troops, to ease their burdens and lift their spirits. Until Every One Comes Home.
