May eNewsletter
May eNewsletter
Dear Fellow Supply Corps Officers and Friends,

Please take a few minutes to read the May issue of the Foundation's eNewsletter--it includes three important topics related to our Community.

Military Appreciation Month
We are grateful for all servicemen and women, in and out of uniform, every day...but during the month of May, we pay special attention to the selfless soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who help keep freedom free. In 1999, Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month, to ensure the nation was given the chance to publicly show our appreciation for troops past and present.

This month, throughout the country, many towns will host celebrations in honor of local active duty, reserve and military veterans. Local businesses and online companies may offer discounts, while sports teams and museums often give free entrance to military families. We hope you'll take advantage of these opportunities and share your pride with your local community. Learn more>>> 

Resources available on Foundation website 

You've come to know the Foundation website has up-to-date information on our programs and services, but did you know that we also share lifestyle news and information throughout our website and social media accounts? This month we offer resources to help you plan for the future. Read more >>>
