A message from Operation Gratitude founder, Carolyn Blashek:
If you’re like me, you have been following the serious and alarming news about what has been going on in North Korea in recent weeks and what it all may mean for the 28,000 U.S. Service Members currently stationed in South Korea — and for their families at home.
To put it mildly, the situation is extremely tense.
As we begin our 2013 Patriotic Drive, our hearts and minds are focused on all U.S. troops who are serving our country — and the world — in dangerous places. Some, like those stationed in South Korea, are not officially “in combat,” but are serving a “Hardship Tour” away from home.
We have reached out to the regional Commands to obtain the names of our troops in South Korea, and we are preparing to send care packages to all serving Hardship Tours. Please help us extend our thanks, encouragement and support to these troops who are now on “Watchcon 2” — the highest alert.
