July is the month that started it all and a great time to remember the armed forces, the soldiers and the sacrifice of the brave men and women, who give all on a daily basis. Please consider donating today. Quick factoid: The opening shots of the American Revolution were fired at Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts in April 1775. Along with a few other important historical events, like the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, the event is known as the "shot heard round the world,"

Recently, we got some correspondence from the mother of a sailor deployed on the USS Jason Dunham, which at the time of the writing was in the area of the Baltic Sea. We are always happy to get messages from military family members. Here's a photo of the vessel:
Very few things we do give us more joy than hearing from our armed forces overseas, especially when we can provide them with help and support. Last time, we heard from the mother of a sailor deployed on the USS Jason Dunham. The mother told us that our care packages reached her daughter on the ship.
The last letter we posted was from a member of the armed forces stationed in Europe. This particular individual wanted to express thanks for him and his fellow soldiers, for a donation we provided. Letters from soldiers expressing gratitude for the care packages and donations we send them do come in from time to time, and we're always happy to share them. Today, we have something a little different.
