Day of the Deployed was created to honor our heroic military personnel who are deployed and is celebrated on October 26.

Our troops and their families sacrifice a lot for our country and Military Benefits has a helpful list of ways to support them.

Here are ways the organization listed to bring awareness to deployed troops:

  • Send care packages.
  • Make a donation to a military support organization.
  • Look to local chapters of veteran-supporting groups such as the Veterans Of Foreign Wars, USO, Disabled American Veterans, etc.for ways to aid and assist.
  • Connect with Soldiers’ Angels which has many programs for supporting deployed troops.
  • Donate money to send a care package. The DoD has a great list of organizations that deliver care packages.
  • Display a yellow ribbon.  Yellow ribbons are a remembrance of the men and women who serve far from home.
  • Social media, use the hashtag #DayOfTheDeployed on October 26 in order to raise awareness and encourage others so support deployed service members and their families.
  • Connect personally by reaching out to a deployed troop you know.

We want to see your loved ones who are deployed so we can highlight them! Please send you photos to pics@wtkr.com or click the button below to share.
