Ways to Brighten a Soldier's Season | Patriotic Holiday Tips from the National Infantry Museum, Columbus, Georgia

At the National Infantry Museum, the mission is to honor Soldiers. Looking for ways to show your support for our military men and women during this festive season? Try one of these ideas:

• Invite a Soldier who can’t go home for the holidays to come to your house for a big home-cooked dinner.

• Find a World War II vet and record his memories. He’ll feel proud and honored. The median age for a WWII veteran is 85. Let’s make sure their stories are not lost.

• Know of a Soldier who’s deployed? Find out what his family needs for the holidays and lend them a helping hand. If you're in the Fort Benning area, Benning MWR has a great list of programs to assist the morale and welfare of our local military families.

• Write a thank-you card to a Soldier, and place it on the Gift of Freedom tree at the National Infantry Museum. If you’re not local, mail it to us and we’ll hang it on the tree for you! (see address below)

• The next time you see a uniformed Soldier, take a moment to simply say, “thank you for your service!” It will mean more than you can guess.

As we enjoy another season of giving, please remember to honor those who have given all for freedom.
