If you’re like me, you just enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal with family and friends. Most of our family lives in Alabama. For the first time in years we stayed home, Thanksgiving dinner for 2! But we weren’t the only ones that didn’t make it home for the family feast. My nephew Mitchell is a Marine and he’s currently deployed, for the 4th time in 8 years.
We’ve had several family members serve our great country, when they’re deployed we know what a sacrifice it is at home and we can only imagine what it’s like for them! Today I’m excited to share that Marie Callender’s will launch the Comforts From Home project by bringing the comforts of home to those who protect America’s homes every day: the brave men and women of the U.S. military.
Here’s our Marine with his Mom, my sister 🙂
