Troops Come Home from Iraq

The last of American troops in Iraq are coming home over the next few days. Over the past nine years, hundreds of thousands of troops have been sent abroad to Iraq. As we mark the end of America’s involvement in the war in Iraq, President Obama has asked Americans to show our veterans and their families that they have the thanks of a grateful nation.

Joining Forces is a national initiative to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned. You can find service opportunities, pledge service hours, or write a message of thanks or support to a military family.
