Do you know someone who is deployed?

Oct 26th is National Day of the Deployed

Wondering how you can support deployed military members and their families?

  • Communicate with the family to determine how to correspond with the deployed military member. Letters or cards sent via “snail mail” are a wonderful way to show you care.

  • Reach out to a military family in your community. Invite them over for a meal, out to the park, offer to babysit, or even make a simple phone call to check in.
  • If a parent is deployed, their partner at home may be facing additional challenges such as childcare. Take the time to get to know them and their needs, and see how you can help. 
Take time to get to know the military member and their family so you know how to best support them.
