Thanksgiving is “RIGHT” around the corner. Are you thankful for your Freedom? Are you thankful you live in the greatest country in the world? Then there is a way for you to tell the very people who fight for your freedom that you are grateful to them for what they do.
This Thanksgiving, the Department of Defense is partnering with major cell phone providers so that you can send “thank you” text messages to the troops fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. It is called “The Giving Thanks Campaign.”
A couple of seconds of your time, and your kind words will reach American troops free of charge. When you text your message of thanks to “89279” (TXASY) between November 17th and 22nd, you’ll receive a special thanks in return.
We will all sit down to our dinner on Thursday in freedom because of the job that they do, and their honorable and extraordinary commitment to our the security of our country. Frankly, most of us will thank them in our blessing prayers; it would be wonderful to let them know how important they are directly.
At the time of this writing over 27,494 messages of Thanks have been sent!!!
My oldest son, Adam is serving in the United States Army. He just graduated from Basic Training and is in AIT at this time. From there, he will be going to Basic Airborne Training in Ft. Benning, Georgia. Yes, I am a proud Father of a United States Solider and I am grateful for his service to our country.
Not only will my wife and I send this special Thank You text message, but I would also like to give out a heartfelt “Thank You” to every single Soldier, Marine, Sailor, and Airman out their who are proudly serving in our US Military and I would like to give a blessing to our troops.
May He who blessed our fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, bless the soldiers of the American Military Forces who keep guard over our country and cities .
May the Almighty deliver us our enemies who arise against us, may the Holy One, blessed be He, preserve them and save them from all sorrow and peril, from danger and ill. May He send blessing and success in all their endeavors, may He deliver to them those who hate us and crown them with salvation and victory, so that the saying may be fulfilled through them, “For the Lord, your God, who walks with you and to fight your enemies for you and to save you”, and let us say, Amen.
