Today, on Independence Day, we celebrate our nation’s freedom. Families and friends gather outside to relax, eat, play and watch the fireworks. Hopefully, we all take time to remember the sacrifices that our troops are making to fight for our freedom.
At Over My Shoulder Foundation, we believe it is our duty to support and mentor the men and women who have come back from overseas serving our country. We need to step up as a nation and mentor those troops in the Army, the Navy, the Marine Corps, the Air Force and the Coast Guard that don’t get to relax on the day when the rest of the country celebrates what they fight for.
We want to get people thinking about mentoring the troops that have served our country and come back with little or no assistance. We hope you’ll read yesterday’s post by 2LT Paul Merklinger’s about mentoring in his military career.
Please keep checking back with us to track the progress of finding and creating situations that bring Mentorology to all those brave and courageous soldiers who fight for our nation’s independence. Happy Fourth of July!
