Send a Deployed Service Member a July 4th Thank You

By Tracie Ciambotti, cofounder of Military Families Ministry

As Americans, we will celebrate our freedom this July 4th with our families—backyard barbecues and fireworks.  I hope every American remembers to stop and say a prayer on that day for the men and women who fight to defend the freedom that July 4th represents.  Many military families will not be spending that day with their loved one who is serving abroad on a deployment.

Military Families Ministry  (MFM) is collecting “Thank You” cards and letters to send to deployed service members this July 4th.  We need to ship them by mid-June for arrival by July 4th.   

Will you help us?  Write a thank you card or letter to a service member and if you know one personally, send it to him or her directly.  If you don’t know a service member, send the cards to MFM and we will send them to the chaplains we support to be distributed to the troops.

You can contact Military Families Ministries here and share your contact information.

I made this card in June of 2005 when my son, Josh, was serving in Iraq on his first deployment.  This poem was my thank you to him and my prayer for him to come back home.  This year, I want to get thousands of thank you cards to send this message to all who are serving abroad—for our freedom. You can download a copy of the Thank You Card or the Poem here.
