The holiday season is always an exciting time, but for MilFams, things aren’t always perfect. The added expenses of the holiday season can be challenging for MilFams, especially those dealing with servicemembers deployed overseas, or traveling long distances to get to the dinner table. Even during deployments, though, there are ways to make things feel more “normal” for you and your MilFam.
Luckily, the great folks at Operation Homefront know the struggles that many MilFams are going through during the holiday season — and they’re here to help. Their Holiday Meals for Military program is back for yet another year of holiday cheer! And they’re likely coming to a military base near you.
As they do every year, Operation Homefront will be touring the country throughout November and December to deliver holiday meals to various military bases across the United States. According to their website, “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!”
The meals are free! But space is limited. Be sure to check out the event calendar to find out when they’ll be coming to your base. Then, all you have to do is reserve a spot and show up. Most giveaways are open to all active-duty servicemembers, but there are some bases with a few eligibility requirements. Be sure to check those out before signing up to confirm that you are able to take advantage of this great program. But hurry! Operation Homefront’s final holiday meal giveaway for 2019 will take place on December 20.
We know that servicemembers and their MilFams make great and selfless sacrifices throughout the year. It’s heartwarming to see organizations like Operation Homefront making sure our nation’s bravest are taken care of during the holidays.
