Make this Veteran's Day Ultra-Special
We understand that Veteran's Day is about remembering those who have served in the military in the past and honoring them. At the same time, we are offering a practical way to care for families who currently serve by providing for the needs of the military with easy, secure online communication.
How would you like to help military personnel keep in touch with the people they most care about? Go Connect is partnering with MilitaryHome Online to care for families. Whether it is updates to family and friends, or a fund raising site for wounded personnel - you can provide a powerful communication tool that will help them.
