Did you know you could adopt a military family for the holidays? If you are willing, you can open your door to a single sailor, soldier, airman or marine who’s away from home to join in your traditional family feasts.
I remember being 19, with my family in California. I was stationed in Earl, New Jersey. I had no family nearby, and no way to fly home on an E-2’s budget. (I didn’t know about Space-A flights yet.) I had my Thanksgiving dinner on the ship that year, along with several other single sailors trying not to think of home. To help prevent this sad story, Operation We Are Here connects civilians and vets with sailors that don’t have the support of family nearby.
