Good information as we head into the holiday season! Thanks, Operation Home Front!

We are excited to announce that we have opened registration for our 2020 Holiday Meals for Military events. The added expense of the holiday season can be challenging for military families, and Operation Homefront recognizes that many military families are separated during this time due to deployments and others travel long distances to be together. Holiday Meals for Military is Operation Homefront’s way of saying thank you for your service and sacrifices that you have made for our country!

Register today via our portal at my.operationhomefront.org.

See a complete list of all 2020 locations and links to register on our Family Events page here https://operationhomefront.org/holiday-meals-for-military/ #HMFM2020

Happy birthday to the GOAT, Audie Murphy! He received every military combat award for valor available from the US Army, as well as French and Belgian awards for heroism. Murphy received the Medal of Honor for valor that he demonstrated at the age of 19 for single-handedly holding off a company of German soldiers for an hour at the Colmar Pocket in France in January 1945, then leading a successful counterattack while wounded and out of ammunition. Hey, check out that 36 ID patch! T FOR TEXAS!
