Mission2Honor

Join us and send a message of support to honor those who have served and are continuing to serve our communities across the country.

 

Mission2Honor is a national initiative to publicly acknowledge and thank our military families. Every day, the families of our nation’s active duty, wounded warriors and veterans show their unwavering commitment to support and protect our communities.

During the Month of the Military Child (April) and Military Appreciation Month (May), we invite you to show your appreciation for these great families by sending in your message of thanks and sharing #Mission2Honor with your friends and family.

It's More Than Recognition!

Mission2Honor matters today more than ever because the challenges for military families do not end.

And they need to remain strong, stable and secure for their family, their community and our country. For this reason, Operation Homefront is committed to helping our troops and their families and honoring their service. Their strength benefits all of us.
