An Operation Homefront and Eckrich® YouTube video called “Military Family Homecomings” topped half a million views as of July 30, 2012. Eckrich, part of the John Morrell Food Group, issued a press release discussing its support for the Military and the video.
The video is no longer available, but Eckrich and Operation Homefront have another video, which you can view above. Here’s an excerpt from the original video:
“Everyone loves a happy ending. That sentiment is proving true with a popular online video that pays tribute to American Military families and their emotional reunions. The two-minute tribute, created by Eckrich in support of Operation Homefront, has already surpassed half a million views on YouTube since its June 5 release. The video is set to the music of Iron and Wine’s rendition of “Love Vigilantes” by New Order.
Eckrich, part of the John Morrell Food Group, a subsidiary of Smithfield Foods, partnered this year with Operation Homefront, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides emergency financial assistance to the families of United States Servicemembers and Wounded Warriors. Through the partnership, Eckrich donated a portion of every purchase of specially marked products from May 1 through July 4 to Operation Homefront, up to $200,000. Representatives from Eckrich presented Operation Homefront with a $200,000 check at a ceremony at the Operation Homefront Village in San Antonio, Texas, on April 28.”
