What’s more patriotic than a deployed soldier?
A deployed soldier on the 4th of July!
Unfortunately, our deployed service members miss a lot of holidays. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t help them celebrate these occasions in some way. Care packages travel around the globe carrying your love and holiday spirit. They let your loved one know that you are thinking of them on these special days.
Anytime my husband deploys, I send him themed care packages for all of the holidays that he has to miss. And Independence Day is no exception!
I put together a round up of nine unique 4th of July care packages that I’ve found on Pinterest and Instagram to give you some ideas for one of your own. [Click the pictures for the links to the original pin or blog.]
