What is Day of the Deployed?

“Day of the Deployed is a day to honor the many selfless actions demanded of military members and their loved ones across the globe serves as a tangible reminder of the sacrifice being made in homes across America every day. Every deployment reflects the deep commitment of not only the deploying member, but of the many friends and loved ones who are left behind to aid in answering our nations call. Selfless men, women and children who are called upon to set aside their personal comfort and convenience to support the heroes they call mom, dad, father, mother, brother, sister or friend.”

– Patti Patton Bader, Soldiers’ Angels Founder

 

To all of those deployed, we take a moment today to truly thank you for your commitment and bravery and pray for your safe and swift return.
