Where No Hero is Forgotten


We have not forgotten all our courageous Gold Star families even after Memorial Day and summer vacations began …

In your honor and your loved one’s memory ,our missions continue . Sadly 2 weekends ago , we lost 3 service members in Afghanistan (two were married with families – now with grieving children.) Then tragically and with heavy hearts in our military community, the USS Fitzgerald of the 7th fleet lost 7 brave  sailors . May they all Rest In Peace .






We cannot take away the pain but we can give thanks for the sacrifices by supporting the service members who need us now, to help prevent the crisis of suicides, to erase the feeling of being forgotten in the middle of war and world conflicts, to ease the pain and speed the healing of  our wounded .


Please remember we are also losing 22-24 active duty troops and veterans to suicide every single DAY. What we do helps in a small way to ease their stress and challenges . Right now with the deaths and newly wounded, many troops feel survivor’s guilt .


Since we began, we have sent 21,000+ care packages to specific military personnel needing support and about 10,000+ from volunteers who adopt their own heroes directly .


Bottom line , your support makes a real  difference for some special exhausted troops overseas and brave vets healing whose mailboxes are empty .

In honor of our fallen and those still here , consider helping the heroes who need us now today. So many say they will with the best of intentions but never do.

A monthly gift can be made in honor of a loved one serving or a hero no longer here if you choose . 


Monday Update :

All care packages needed to ship YESTERDAY, we have 8 left which need postage . When you help with any amount – please know you can add your own 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 helps.

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 .
