Peeps are Dropping in for Easter!!
Back for a Limited Time! Marshmallow Peeps are in our seasonal Easter Troop Care Packages!
We hear from many of our troops and often their stories echo the same sentiments. They are proud and honored to serve our great nation, and they take their mission to serve very seriously, however, being far from loved ones and your own country can be rough at times. We know our troops miss their families and there is truly no place like home, so at MAF we try to make sure we bring some of our American traditions to our troops no matter how far from home they are serving.
Offering a physical reminder that we care about them and are thinking of them and have not forgotten about them is one small way we can serve our deployed men and women. So while they may miss out on Easter egg hunts and baskets full of goodies, they can still enjoy a great big care package full of love from home. Never underestimate the power of a thoughtful gesture and a personal note from you in your care package to them!
When you send a care package through Move America Forward, we include space for you to write your very own note of support. You don’t need to be Shakespeare or Hemingway to let out troops know you value them, they will appreciate your kind words and encouragement more than you can ever know.
Time and time again we hear from our troops about just how meaningful your note in the care package is for them. It can truly be the little pat on the back that gets them through a rough day.
Easter is full of traditions and one tradition MAF like to carry on is our commitment to making sure our seasonal Easter packages for our troops contain Peeps in addition to items soldiers crave like, Rogers Family gourmet coffee, beef jerky, Oreo cookies, Gatorade, lip balm, Dude Wipes, deodorant and more offerings to remind our troops that home isn’t really that far away after all.
Flag flies in Afghanistan to thank MAF and our Supporters
We often hear back from soldiers who receive care packages, but we were honored when one of the soldiers we had sent care packages to stopped by our offices to say thank you in person. David, an Army Captain, was home on emergency leave and took time out of his very hectic schedule to stop by to chat and drop off a flag flown in Afghanistan on January 22, 2018 in our honor. David also presented us with a certificate of appreciation on behalf of his Special Operations Task Force group that had received our care packages.
What an honor to have David stop by, it is truly humbling to know the packages we send, the packages YOU send, make sure a difference to our troops!

President Abe Lincoln knew what it meant to order our troops into battle; battles that he knew would cost many lives of brave soldiers. But we know we can always count on our troops to do their duty when called upon. We are forever thankful for their sacrifice. pic.twitter.com/ydHrMrhOkd
