There are over 1 million active U.S. Military personnel. A large portion of those are deployed… many overseas. That means thousands upon thousands of men and women – putting their lives on the line for other’s safety – are likely to be away from home on the holidays.
In an effort to make them feel more at home and honor their service and commitment, Forgotten Soldiers Outreach has made it their mission to send a piece of home overseas – to every service member they can.
To date, Forgotten Soldiers Outreach has sent over 400,000 ‘We Care’ packages to service men and women overseas. Every month, care packages are filled with favorite snacks, holiday treats, and pieces of home then sent to military members all over the world.
Help us give Forgotten Soldiers Outreach the support they need to continue their work. Every time you read or share an InspireMore story, we raise money for this important cause.
