-- to another Mother's Day related topic and I love this one because if if there is any mom in this country that needs more thinks it's -- those military moms that have made.
Ultimate sacrifices by sending their their daughters and their sons overseas to fight for our freedom operation appreciation.
Think a military mom Stephanie -- Nelson is the director of communications for blue star families they're also on Twitter at blue star family.
-- check them out and Stephanie thank you so much for talking to us you know we joke around about Mother's Day and how we want gifts but honestly I mean.
The greatest gift for -- for military families is to get their sons and daughters back alive and unharmed and for unfortunately a lot of those moms.
They don't ever see their kids again and I mean that as a mother.
Is is such a sacrifice that I don't know if I'd be willing to make it be perfectly honest with you what do you guys doing for for these military moms that are quite frankly heroes.
My -- Well we'll -- -- mean that we we like to do a lot of things for for all members of the family but your -- -- Mother's -- can be really really hard yeah.
For for military spouses and curve for military -- -- right now.
I -- can't even imagine I have two little boys and I I just can't even imagine.
Sending one of them off to war so I really do think that our military moms there are some amazing heroes.
That there are a lot of great things that you can do one thing we have happening right now is military spouse appreciation certificate that you can request.
And this is is not necessarily just mom oriented it's it's for spouses as well.
But you can actually requests.
Something for someone that you know.
So let's say you know military spouse Donna block or you wanna hear your children's school or your military spouse to -- or maybe.
Your mom is a military spouse.
You can request one of these certificates from our website and it's got their name on it and it assists -- -- for all that you do.
And it's a wonderful way to just remind.
-- spouse or mom that they're really appreciate it.
Can we show some of these cards just to give an example -- believe that we do have.
Some examples of what these cards actually look like we don't have them unfortunately okay well is -- anywhere that we can actually see a sample of these cards on the Internet.
It definitely if you go to our website it's blue star Fam dot org okay you'll see at big picture up at the top.
Which focuses on military spouse appreciation month -- if you just click on that it will take you to the form and you can actually see our am reading that the writer can choose to write a card to a parent.
Or -- -- military member of the spouse and family of a military member of the child of -- military member or veteran of the armed services is that right.
That is correct.
And in this he's got so much like -- we've got actually have your web -- up right now some people I think a lot.
But you were saying.
It means so much to military family members I have to say and my husband -- thanked for his service.
Constantly he he recently retired but every single time someone has -- thank -- to me I remember -- And I was incredibly moved so this is just an easy way to say thank you to any member of the family and -- Mother's Day this is.
This is a great way to say yes I -- what you do I notice how hard this is for you know.
And if you want to request to certificate as well for military spouse or our someone that you love.
Then go right ahead and and do that is while Andy got -- go to -- some tips that you can lend us on sending these letters anything in particular that that people should put in these.
At you know it's it's nice to see something a little bit personal about yourself why are you writing the cards you wanna say thank you.
And it's nice to acknowledge you know I mean not I mean I understand what you're going through but I'm thinking about you and I think about -- offense and that means the world.
Yeah that is really -- and I know that it means a lot to them to know that they are not forgotten.
Because unfortunately there are so many military men and women that lose their lives and really in the media these days don't really get the kind of attention for their sacrifice that they deserve so this is certainly.
I wish more people would do not just on Mother's Day but just all your round.
Yes definitely and this isn't something just for Mother's Day you can do -- any time right -- -- you consented to parent your child as well but from other states it's -- -- remember.
That those moms who are apart from their spouse right now or apart from their child.
