๐Ÿ’™ Writing our heroes -our wounded and sick warriors & deployed troops who always need Homefront Hugs but especially soon for Easter and Passover but we need them in between too as we pack your cards and letters in our monthly care packages ! ๐ŸŽ—๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ’™

To save time here is our handout for you to use :

How to Write our Troops and Wounded in 2017

1. Our mailbox is empty and this is a super project for any child or teenager to understand who a hero is and how our freedom comes at great sacrifice . My son’s father was a USAF veteran and we lost him to brain cancer a few years ago. The kids are the real heroes left behind missing their Mom or Dad and personal hero .๐Ÿ’™ But even my son will be writing some cards to troops overseas and our wounded that will be packed into care packages . He does this in honor of his Dad in Heaven.

๐Ÿ’šIn a positive way – your children and you can reach out to deployed troops and wounded and even our brave sick veterans who need a hug and smile . ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Please make your cards personal with at least 2-3 sentences on each card, your drawing or letter as we want your written surprises to feel like REAL support and a real Homefront Hug unless it is from a child . ๐Ÿ˜Ž Morale is key when deployed overseas or healing from a wound or serious illness .

2. Please write your notes ( and you can draw pictures too and add a message) to a wounded or sick veteran , nurse , doctor , therapist ,or medic for Operation Healing Angel of Homefront Hugs and/or for deployed troops AND always put on a corner of each card, letter or banner (or envelope if sealing) WHO the card or letter is for ! ๐Ÿ“ฌ

4. Additionally you can add your address or email or both on what you send . Just know we make no promises you will hear back . Our wounded and sick vets are going through their own life challenges and our deployed vets are at WAR . But during the last 15 years – many Americans have heard back !๐Ÿ˜‰
