Happy Birthday to the United States of America!

It’s time to celebrate another birthday, America! Happy Birthday, U.S.A!

This day is made possible by the amazing men and women who serve our country in the United States Armed Forces. In times of War, and in times of Peace, we depend on them to protect our freedoms and independence, so today and every day we want to say, “THANK YOU” to all our deployed Troops, Veterans, Wounded Warriors, Military Families and Emergency First Responders.

When we celebrate the good things that come from this great country, we are celebrating all of YOU!

Happy 4th of July FB CollagePlease join us as we continue to support all our military, past and present!

As always, THANK YOU for your support!

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.

    Thank you, Carolyn, and all the wonderful guys and gals in blue shirts…who brave the 100% heat that we experienced last Sunday, and the cold days of December…to lead all of us now-and-then volunteers to accomplish so much good for those courageous men and women who give their ALL for us.

    Love this! I was checking out at the grocery store and an elderly lady and I were just chatting. She wished me a happy 4th and I told her that I am a new citizen (5 years this year!!!!!!) and she hugged me. “God bless you, Dearie” she said. And I said, “He does, Ma’am, he does.”

    God Bless America🙂
