For the 9th year in a row, JINSA members and non-members alike supported American troops through JINSA’s Deserving Soldiers Holiday Appeal. In 2011, JINSA raised close $140,000 toward these efforts. Since the campaign began in 2003, JINSA has raised and distributed more than $1 million.
On May 27, 2010, at the invitation of the Special Operations community, a small group of JINSA members traveled to Ft. Bragg, North Carolina to participate in a special Memorial Day dedication and remembrance of the fallen warriors from the U.S. Army's Special Operations community.
This Thanksgiving comes at a time of tremendous upheaval, economic dislocation and a truly historic presidential election. As a country, we are exhausted and jittery, and nothing makes us think the way ahead will be any easier or calmer.
Funds Distributed to Military Families and Recovering Service Personnel
For the fifth year in a row, members and non-members alike supported American troops through JINSA's Holiday Appeal on behalf of "Deserving Soldiers" and their families. Since the effort was established, more than $450,000 has been distributed.
