Say "Thank You" with a United States Army Freedom Team Salute Commendation!

Our Army is doing a tremendous job defending America's freedom. However,
our success depends on strong supporters standing with us as we fight the
Global War on Terrorism. I encourage you to take the time to say "Thank
You" to those special individuals that help us accomplish our duties.

The U.S. Army's Freedom Team Salute program was initiated by the Secretary
of the Army and the Army Chief of Staff to provide all currently serving
Soldiers a sincere, heartfelt way to recognize their Parents and Spouses for
their support and sacrifice. Guard and Reserve Soldiers can also recognize
their Employers during these trying times.

  • I say Thanks all the time. No matter if its in the grocery store, fast food line, post officer worker, who ever it may be. Its just common courtesy. I am also Thankful for my husband and his company that are over there fighting freedom for us.

  • Additionally, anyone can honor
    the millions of discharged U.S. Army Veterans who served with distinction;
    and, other Army Supporters, who continue to make significant contributions
    to the Army's mission (for example, a Soldier's child or other relative, a
    Family Readiness Group Leader, Department of the Army Civilians, or an
    active community member, etc.).

    Those honored will receive a personalized letter of thanks and certificate
    of appreciation signed by the Secretary and Chief of Staff of the Army; an
    official Army lapel pin; and, Army decals. The entire commendation package
    is prepared and mailed at no cost to either you or the recipient.
