Ask Your Senator to Support the "Day of the Deployed"!

In 2006, Soldiers’ Angels asked then-Governor John Hoeven to sign the first ever Day of the Deployed proclamation in honor of deployed warriors from North Dakota.  The proclamation grew over the years, with over 40 governors across the nation signing their own state proclamations honoring the service members in the states they governed.

While this declaration of troop support has been honored state by state, it is time to make Day of the Deployed a national day of honor.  Once again Soldiers’ Angels requested the help of John Hoeven, and once again he has responded with strong support

Building on his resolution as North Dakota’s governor, Senator John Hoeven yesterday introduced a resolution in the U.S. Senate to designate Oct. 26, 2011, as “Day of the Deployed” in recognition of the sacrifices of U.S. servicemen and women currently deployed around the world.

And we need your help to get your Senators to assist with sponsoring and supporting this resolution in the U.S. Senate.

You can use the form letter below to send an email to encourage your senator to co-sponsor S. Res. 253, which declares October 26 a national Day of the Deployed (find your senator's contact info here).

Please remember to make the subject line:  "Soldiers' Angels Re: Day of the Deployed" 

Please be sure to replace the bolded brackets with your specific information at the beginning AND the end before you send it.

Dear Senator [YOUR SENATOR’S LAST NAME],

I read about Senator Hoeven calling on his colleagues to join him in sponsoring S. RES. 253 to declare October 26 as a national DAY OF THE DEPLOYED in honor of our brave men and women in uniform who are selflessly putting their lives on the line to protect and preserve our way of life.

Please join him in honoring the many selfless actions demanded of military members and their loved ones across the globe, and the sacrifice being made in homes across America every day.  Every deployment reflects the deep commitment of not only the deploying member, but of the many friends and loved ones who are left behind to aid in answering our nation’s call. 

These heroes deserve our deepest respect and honor, so I hope you will stand with me and my fellow constituents by co-sponsoring S. RES. 253 to make Day of the Deployed a NATIONAL DAY OF HONOR for them.

Sincerely,

[YOUR NAME]
[YOUR CITY & STATE]

Thank you for helping make this very important national recognition for our troops happen!
