What Are You Thankful For?

If you are wondering what to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, you just don’t know where to look.

 

…for the Heroes who gave their life on the battlefield and for the Gold Star families who lost their Hero; for our Heroes who have seen hell on earth defending our freedoms; for the Heroes who returned safely home to their families; to the Armed Forces members of our nation who take upon themselves an oath to defend the United States; to the Heroes who were physically wounded on the field of battle and to the those who carry with them wounds that are invisible and will never be seen.

 

As a nation, we have many things to be thankful for, and as a Foundation we are thankful for over 700 Heroes and their families celebrating Thanksgiving in their OWN homes this year. We are thankful for all of our Heroes and there are no words that can fully express how truly indebted we are to these men and women. They haven’t just sacrificed on the field of battle, they sacrificed time away from their families, they sacrificed seeing their kids grow up. The newly renovated, mortgage-free homes which we are privileged to award, is our gift to them to help make up for lost time with their families and removing the worry of a mortgage payment is the best gift we can present our Heroes.

 

On this Thanksgiving –
Military Warriors Support Foundation reminds you to remember our Heroes. Include them in your prayers. But don’t stop there, don’t be thankful just today, be thankful to them for as long as you live.

 

Respectfully,
Military Warriors Support Foundation

American Freedom Est. 1776

On April 19, 1775, the Minutemen of the colonies and the Redcoats of Great Britain clashed at Lexington and Concord with “The shot heard ’round the world.” The American Revolution was the first war that we, as Americans, would be involved in. As anti-British sentiments grew among the colonists, the idea of independence and revolution became more favorable.
Independence Day is the commemoration of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by our forefathers in 1776.

 

On July 4th, 239 years ago, the delegates of the Continental Congress accepted that historic document and declared America’s freedom from Great Britain. The American Revolution would continue on until a peace treaty could be agreed upon by The United States and Great Britain in 1783.

Americans were called to take up arms and defend their right to live under a free democracy. About 6,800 Patriots were killed in action; 17,000 recorded deaths were from disease and 8,000 to 12,000 died from starvation or disease as a Prisoner of War (POW).

 

Like in the American Revolution, our military men and women today are called to serve in the fight for the freedom Americans enjoy everyday. In celebrating your right to live freely this 4th of July, we challenge you to take a moment to remember those heroes that so bravely earned us our freedom, as well as those who have carried on the battle and continue to stand up for liberty today.
