Where No Hero is Forgotten











In honor of heroes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice , our missions support those still serving without support and with special needs . This past week we mourned 15 Marines and one Navy Corpsman due to the horrific KC-130 crash last Monday . In their honor, care packages are being sent out to heroes with no support but only with your help .


Military families again are quietly planning funerals while children begin to live their lives with a missing parent . We must never forget .

The USS Fitzgerald community also mourns their loss of 7 sailors who valiantly tried to save the ship and crew as they perished . Our missions honor them . Your help for vetted servicemen and women here honors their memory every day .






We try to help erase the feeling of being forgotten in the middle of war and world conflicts and help to ease the pain and help healing of our wounded warriors. We are all in this together .


Please remember we are losing 22-24 active duty troops and veterans to suicide every single DAY. What we do helps in small ways to ease their stress and challenges . Right now with the recent deaths of troops here and abroad with newly wounded, many troops feel survivor’s guilt . They need our support .


Since we began after 9/11/01 , we have sent 21,000+ care packages to specific military personnel needing support and 10,000+ from Homefront Hugs volunteers who adopt their own heroes directly .



Bottom line , your support makes a real  difference for  troops overseas from all branches and brave vets healing whose mailboxes are empty .


Weekend Update :

Please remember why we could celebrate our freedoms . In thanks let’s get these care packages sent to some truly deserving men and women in uniform wounded and deployed .

Right now 24 care packages needing postage . Just for helping in any way – you are a patriot because so many just hope others will and that often makes our care packages late like now

Don’t forget to add a message for our troops overseas and hospitalized vets healing which we pack in your sponsored care packages and handwrite ourselves.

Each box needs postage of $17.35 to ship to vetted troops and wounded & sick vets who have no support. Even $5 goes a long way and is extremely appreciated !

Homefront Hugs began 1 month after 9/11 and on the birthday of our founder’s husband and Air Force pilot, her best friend and hero, Steve Schmidt of amazing Charlevoix, Michigan . If you have never been to the dunes of Charlevoix and watched a sunset with a loved one, put this memorable town on your bucket list .


They had met at University of Michigan –  as college sweethearts and then Steve joined the Air Force . Though their marriage did not last due to tragedy, Homefront Hugs exists to help support military families and veterans better than how they were supported years ago.

We will never forget the sacrifices. Your generosity here makes a real direct difference as 100% is used for our troops and wounded to receive care .


📫 KEY REASONS that troops might not have support while deployed:

📌 Divorce or Separation from Partner/Spouse
📌 Financial issues so family cannot afford to send more than letters or cards
📌 Time constraints for spouse or partner as they have to work 2 jobs now to make ends meet or just longer hours to keep family business going
📌 Children – Their partner or spouse is literally a single parent now
📌 Child or Spouse is ill and requires all the attention and care stateside
📌 Family disapproves of military service
📌 Pride or Depression so hero asks family or loved ones not to worry about him or her while deployed

You can make a difference at Homefront Hugs and support these heroes ! Adopt or help send care packages today. We need the kind of support our World War II veterans had from the Homefront over 75 years ago.



Support is critical to wrap specific  forgotten and often hurting heroes in hugs helping to prevent depression, isolation and trying to tackle the national suicide crisis one day at a time not just this month when everyone reminds us because of holidays.

Homefront Hugs support helps to prevent some of the feelings that makes a service member more vulnerable to PTSD , depression and even giving up.


What is needed most critically now? 

Funds for postage .



🔹 100% of your donation is used for postage to mail specific needs to our wounded , sick , cancer patients and homeless sick veterans as well as our brave deployed . We cover the cost of filling the care packages ourselves and with actual supplies sometimes donated . These critical care packages to our hospitalized vets include specific requests from hospital staff here and overseas in war zones. 

Our support at Homefront Hugs USA is unconditional ; to ensure no hero is forgotten. Freedom Endures (TM). Support Matters .



How do we receive names of troops in need ?

Great question. We have commands and chaplains signing up troops who have no support for Homefront Hero Hugs and hospitals we have worked with for years with our mission Operation Healing Angel . We also have families and troops who sign up heroes in need  or themselves many who sign up evry deployment knowing us from experience .
