Help Support Our Troops During the Holidays

The holiday season is here, but thousands of Nebraskans won't be spending it with their families this year. The holidays are an especially hard time for troops serving overseas. And many people want to help them cope with being away from home by showing their support. But what can “you” do to help our troops this holiday season? There are lots of things you can do to help our troops feel a little closer to home over the holidays. It doesn't have to cost a lot of money or take a lot of time… Soldiers and their families say in this case, it really is the thought that counts.

There are programs you can donate to that send troops things like calling cards and gift certificates they can use wherever they are serving. But it's also important to remember that soldiers are away from home all year round, and can always use your support.
