Today on the Oprah show, “First lady Michelle Obama, Tom Brokaw and Bob Woodward introduce us to some of the bravest families in America as they cope with the invisible wounds of war.” http://www.oprah.com/showinfo/The-Bravest-Families-in-America

Former South Dakota Army National Guardsman Sgt. Corey Briest (Ret.) and his wife, Jenny were among the guests. Briest, of Yankton, was seriously injured by a roadside bomb near Baghdad,Dec. 4, 2005, while serving with Battery C, 1st Battalion, 147th FieldArtillery, South Dakota Army National Guard, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. … Soldiers’ Angels have stood with Corey and Jenny since his injury.”

The message of the show was simple…..be grateful, never forget and DO something to show your support.

If you want to do something and are not sure what to do go to soldiersangels.org We have many teams you can join such as the wounded TLC team which helped show support to Jenny and Corey.

Do you live in Washington and would you like to help?? Email soldiersangelswashington @gmail.com  We need you!

Soldiers’ Angels is an all encompassing organization that is dedicated to supporting our Deployed, Wounded, Veterans and their families. As Tom Brokaw, Bob Woodward, Oprah and the First Lady said today…..it takes the communities to step up to make a difference.  “We owe them everything”…..therefore we all must do something.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks to the generosity of gourmet gifts retailer Harry & David, troops far from home this holiday season will have an extra special treat in their Soldiers’ Angels care packages—Harry & David’s delicious and hugely-popular Moose Munch® Bars.

The “Support Our Troops Moose Moose Munch® Drive” previously resulted in over 115,000 bars sent to soldiers overseas and is returning just in time for the winter holidays. Harry & David stores nationwide are offering customers the opportunity to purchase two Moose Munch® bars for $4 (one bar is usually $2.50) and donate one of the two bars for the Moose Munch® Bar Drive along with a personal message to a soldier. Soldiers’ Angels will distribute this new round of bars in its Wrapped in Holiday Spirit care packages and Harry & David is assisting with shipping.

“We’re delighted to support our troops on the front lines,” said Steve Heyer, CEO of Harry & David. “The program gives our customers the opportunity to give back to soldiers who have already given so much of themselves for our country.”

“This is a fantastic gift for deployed service members who will be so far from home during the Holidays and we are thrilled to be able to include the in our care packages,” says Soldiers’ Angels Founder Patti Patton-Bader. “Moose Munch® Bars will be sure to bring a smile to the faces of these heroes.”

Soldiers’ Angels is aiming to send a Wrapped in Holiday Spirit care package to every deployed service member this holiday season. Care packages will include snacks, candy, hot chocolate, socks, a handmade blanket, a travel mug and a personal note.

To participate in the Support Our Troops Moose Munch® Bar Drive, visit your local Harry & David store.
