There is nothing like a message from home to let a soldier, sailor, marine or airman know that he or she is supported and their service is appreciated.
While Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service, the American Red Cross will have notecards available for all donors to write a message of support to our active service members.
The cards, with “I gave blood this Memorial Day in honor of your service” printed on one side, will have space for personal messages. They will be in select blood donation centers and blood drives in the Arizona region from May 22 through Memorial Day, May 28, giving donors the chance to let our military community know how much they appreciate all that they have sacrificed in order to keep our country safe.
The cards will be shipped with packages by the Blue Star Moms organization in mid-June.
