New Program Makes It Easy to Give Emotional Support and Show Gratitude to
Our Injured Service Members
ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- If you want to do something simple and meaningful to get into the holiday spirit, here's a great item for your "to-do" list: Take a few minutes to show someone who has been wounded in military service that you appreciate (and haven't forgotten) his or her sacrifices for our country.
Thanks to "Operation: Show You Care," a new program from the USO and
CarePages.com, everyone now has an opportunity to personally express their
support and gratitude to the more than 30,000 wounded troops. This program,
available at http://www.carepages.com/wounded-troops.com, features several
ways to help injured service members, including:
-- Free "We Care" cards - If you know of a wounded service member, you can
create online a customized card, which you can then email to up to 10
other people for them to sign and add a brief encouraging message. The
card is then automatically mailed through the U.S. Postal Service to
the designated recipient. The service is free to the first 3,000
-- "Yellow Ribbons for Wounded Troops" - Anyone can send a ribbon and best
wishes to the military personnel featured here
http://www.carepages.com/yellow-ribbons or add someone they would like
be honored and supported by this simple tribute.
-- Free CarePages - Create a private, personalized Web site for a wounded
service member that makes it easy for family and friends to connect,
stay in touch and tap into the healing power of emotional support from
the CarePages.com community of 2.5 million members.
-- Other USO opportunities - Donate, voluntee
