Shooters' Alliance for Firearms Rights Reaching out to Others

There are many ways to support our troups - and I think that prayers, good thoughts, and the support of family and friends at home is vital, but there are other ways to support our troups and their families at home.

Here's a great example. The Shooters' Alliance for Firearms Rights'
SAFR Jackson Chapter has done a wonderful fundraiser and is donating the funds to the Michigan National Guard Family Program, which provides assistance to military members as needed. This can be during times of deployments or when the soldier/airman is unable to provide necessary information to the family.

Other ways to support our men and women working for our freedom throughout the world:

  • Donate a calling card to help keep service members in touch with their families at Operation Uplink at

  • Send a greeting via e-mail through Operation Dear Abby at: or

  • Sign a virtual thank you card at the Defend America: Web site at
  • Make a donation to one of the military relief societies:

  • Army Emergency Relief at

  • Navy/Marine Relief Society at

  • Air Force Aid Society at

  • Coast Guard Mutual Assistance at

  • The Michigan National Guard The Michigan National Guard Family Fund

  • Donate to "Operation USO Care Package" at

  • Support the American Red Cross Armed Forces Emergency Services at

  • Volunteer at a VA Hospital: to honor veterans who bore the lamp of freedom in past conflicts.

  • Reach out to military families in your community, especially those with a loved one overseas. Kudoes to SAFR and all of those involved for their continued support of those who give so much for us at home. Working together, people who care can accomplish anything!
