On this Veterans Day, SAG-AFTRA remembers those military heroes who have served our country in the past and those who continue to put themselves in harm's way around the world, often with little fanfare. We are grateful for their efforts.
Since World War II, members of this union have backed our fighting men and women, entertaining and informing troops at home and abroad, and packing up care packages to be shipped overseas. More recently, SAG-AFTRA proudly joined the First Lady's Joining Forces initiative, which focuses on military families, and the entertainment industry's Got Your 6 program, which seeks to secure employment for returning veterans.
Once again this year, SAG-AFTRA partners with the USO to offer hope, comfort and support to our troops and their families. There's no gift too great or small for our nation's heroes so please consider making a $25 tax-deductible gift to the program today to allow Americans deployed overseas the opportunity to call home or receive a care package for the holidays. Please visit www.teamuso.org/sagaftra to make a secure donation, sending a message of support to our troops.
To all of our brothers and sisters, husbands, wives, partners and children who have contributed to our country’s defense in the past or who do so today: We thank you.
