Give Thanks to the Troops Who Have Fought for US
There’s no better time than the holidays to let our servicemembers know how grateful we are for everything that they do.
Help Us Build a Nationwide Wave of Support
Joining Forces has partnered with the USO to create a nationwide interactive thank you card. Just fill out a note and it will be added to a map along with messages from people all over the country, showing our troops and their families just how much we appreciate their service and sacrifice. If we each do our part, our veterans and their families will get the recognition they deserve this holiday season.
