The Feeling of Home

🇺🇸Happy Independence Day, America!🇺🇸

Images taken from Combat Cookies Facebook page

Let's reflect upon what got us here:


We fought the country that financed us, so we could govern ourselves.

Today, the United States has service people all over the globe, stationed for our own defense, and to aid others.

Want to help those who are far from home?  Please consider:

 Combat Cookies

"Combat Cookies is a veteran owned and operated 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We bake and ship fresh from the oven cookies to U.S. military members who are deployed overseas. Being away from the comforts of home can be emotionally challenging. Sending cookies is one way to bring the feeling of home to a deployed military member.

We aren't here to sugarcoat the military...oh wait, yes we are!"

Such a unique way to support our troops.
