Many of our local troops, stationed near-by: Marines, Sailors, Airmen, and Soldiers cannot return home for the holidays. Some of the younger ones have never been apart from their family at this time of the year. — Thanksgiving and Christmas are times of joyous reunions, big meals and lots of laughter and chatter. But not for thousands of our country’s defenders. It is actually a time of depression and loneliness. — But you can help and turn their sadness into joy!
Go to your HirePatriots.com local job board and post a friendly invitation for a couple of troops or more to share the holiday with you. Put a few more chairs up to your table. Give back to those who have given so much to you. — Invite them for dinner.
Supporters of HirePatriots have been doing this for years. Last year, we counted 800 local GIs who accepted invitations from their patriotic neighbors. All concerned enjoyed themselves thoroughly. — What a wonderful and personal way to say Thank You to those who deserve it the most. Because without these fine young men and women we would not be blessed with the freedoms we have today.
