As Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner… I want to remind everyone of a program that often gets forgotten.
Many areas where there is a military base have a program called “Adopt a Soldier” for the holidays.Â We have hosted a couple Marines for Thanksgiving, and it is great.Â I am told that the Army, Navy and Air Force have similar programs.
In short, this is where you give a soldier who is away from his or her home, the chance to have a holiday dinner with a family and to share the day with you instead of in the barracks or on base.
I encourage you all to look into this.Â I can promise you that this will make them and you feel great.Â I also recommend giving them a calling card as a gift.Â You can also let them use your phone to call home and talk to their family as well.
I hope that the few of you that are reading this will contact your local base and see if they have this program.
