With love from — and to — Afghanistan…Happy Fathers Day!

It’s already June 16 in Afghanistan — so we’ll start celebrating now! Happy Fathers Day to fathers everywhere, with a special thanks to ALL who serve…or have served in years past.

We are mindful of the fathers who can’t be with their families on this day, like the Service Members in Afghanistan who are pictured here. (U.S. Army photos by Sgt. Jessi Ann McCormick. Used with permission.)

Please keep these men and their loved ones in your thoughts and prayers today and every day, and join us as we support them with care packages filled with goodies, thanks and love!

About Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home. Each package is filled with food, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, as well as personal letters of support. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of the Military and First Responder communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for civilians anywhere in America to express their appreciation to all who serve our nation. Each package contains donated product valued between $45 and $100 and costs our organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1.6 Million Care Packages.
