... because of the Brave!
As a former military brat, I really appreciate how much support our country has for its service members! The challenges we faced were much different from our friends. When my sister and I were in high school, my dad got new orders. At the time we were stationed at Great Lakes, and his new orders were to Washington (state, not D.C.). My sister was going into her senior year, and my folks made the really hard decision for my dad to go out there solo and leave us all behind. As kids, we made some serious sacrifices because of their decision and it was far from easy. But we came out stronger on the other end, and it only ended up being for a few years.
So I was PSYCHED to find out Close To My Heart was giving back to a cause that's close to MY heart - the military! They came up with some wonderful patriotic stamp sets to salute those brave men and women who make it possible for us all to enjoy all the exceptional freedoms we have.
From June 1st to July 31st, $3 from each Courage Stamp set (B-sized, retails for $9.95) and $5 from each
Home of the Brave Stamp Set (D-sized, retails for $17.95) will be donated to the USO! The USO is an incredible organization that supports our service members. These brave men and women sacrifice so much and they deserve to know that we don't take their sacrifices for granted!
