OWH Memorial Day Bloghop

Memorial Day is a day to honor our men and women who have served and died for our country. We should all be grateful to these persons for keeping our country a free country. Today we still have numerous family members who are away from their families so that we can be safe.

Operation Write Home is an organization that provides handmade greeting cards for soldiers to send home to families and friends. You can help by becoming involved in making cards and/or by giving a donation. Check out the Operation Write Home website for sketches and information to get you started. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Memorial Day!
