The USO is sending a card to our deployed troops this 4th of July to show our support for those men and women tasked with keeping us safe and securing our freedoms.

Their goal is to have 75,000 signatures. Right now they have already received over 44,000. The official USO website posted the following message:

This Fourth of July, we’re trying to show our brave military heroes how much we appreciate the sacrifices they make to protect our freedom. Sign the USO’s Independence Day card now to thank our troops!

Happy Fourth of July! Thank you for everything you do to protect our freedom and keep us safe.

It only takes a moment to sign the card. You are asked for your first and last name, and also an email address, which is very small price to pay to show your support.

You can also make a donation, but it is not required.

As a veteran that was deployed overseas myself, I remember how important and uplifting it was to receive mail and other goodies from back home. Please take a minute out of your busy schedule to show your support for those that can't spend this holiday season with their family and friends, because they are doing their best to make sure America stays the land of the free and the home of the brave.
