Soldiers' Angels Receives Military Order of the Purple Heart Award

Attention! This post has been updated with the correct award!

Dear Angels,
We have HUGE news to share with you! Soldiers’ Angels received the Military Order of the Purple Heart Award for Public Service on Saturday, June 17th, 2007 in Sacramento, CA. at the Military Order of the Purple Heart National meeting.

We would like to share a story with you on what a difference we all make. A woman was walking along a beach filled with starfish. As she walked, she would stoop down, pick one up at random, and throw it back into the ocean. A man came upon her and asked why she was bothering with throwing some back when there were so many - how could it possibly make a difference?

She picked up another starfish, threw it back into the ocean, and said, "It made a difference to that one."

“How wonderful that no one need wait a single moment to improve the world.” ~ Anne Frank

Everyday, each Angel makes a difference in the lives of our service members! Thank you all!

Angel Hugs-
Patti Patton-Bader, Founder and Don MacKay, Executive CEO
