Practical Ways To Support Our Troops

Aug 17, 2007
Whether the war was something you chose to oppose or support, support for the troops is an important thing. Typically, many people feel unable to offer any means of support because such things in their mind suggest financial responsibility. While there is need for support in an economical sense, offering support to our troops isn't limited to it.

Flying the American Flag has been one such emblem which leaves a signature of support for our military men and women. Newspapers across the country had even implemented this by creating print outs of the flag or other supportive logos to display in a window of your home. Of course this type of ideal has been enhanced by creating logos that have appeared on clothing, cups, magnets, and so on which can be purchased at affordable prices.

DONATE. When people see the word donate the first thing that comes to mind is money. There are other ways you can donate. Giving blood is one such example. It goes without saying that the need for blood will arise in times of war. Donate phone cards, frequent flyer miles etc. Many of these types of things are incentives for credit card holders or even utilized in other types of services.

You can also utilize donating techniques in providing food, toiletries, blankets, etc. that are always in need. What can even be more crucial and comes at no cost is simply, donating your time. Time is of the essence. Taking time to send cards and letters is such a minor thing but makes a world of difference to the men and women in our military. Operation Dear Abby is one of many models of support to connect the average American to a resource which will allow them to express their appreciation for the sacrifice our military personnel has made.

USA Freedom Corps offers several opportunities for you to volunteer to help support programs utilized to represent our efforts of 'freedom'. Volunteering for programs implemented through Freedom Corps will not only show that you support the efforts of our troops, it also unifies you in their cause. Isn't America's freedom what we're all trying to protect?

Another option is volunteering for public service. This is a broad area which can connect with your area of expertise. Education is a highly populated area of public service and it's one of the most necessary as children are the keys to our future. The ways you can volunteer your abilities in this area are numerous. Even donating an hour of your time to read in a child's classroom is a huge significance to their future.

When it comes to mind in regards to children, the numbers are building with those who've lost a parent due to the war. Whether they've left their lives forever or for a short time, support is widely needed. The Big Brother Big Sister Organization is non-profit and carries such significance in a child's life. Isn't their smile worth just a little of your time?
