With two brothers in the Navy, Kelly Phillips Erb has witnessed the number of life-changing moments an active duty soldier misses out on—”Birthdays. Graduation. First steps. First touchdown. Illnesses. Bad news. Good news. Spelling bees and science fairs. Prom.”
And for many veterans, the hardships don’t stop there. Erb’s piece for Forbes provides 14 ways to say “thank you” to our troops, from care packages, to donations, to volunteer opportunities.
Why not add another fun (and delicious) military celebration to the mix? Baskin Robbins debuted “First Class Camouflage” ice cream for Veterans Day, and is donating 10 cents from each scoop sold to the United Service Organizations (USO).
Find out the flavors from People, then head out and honor our military veterans and active duty troops, today and beyond!
