Resources for Families in the Military

One of our staff members made a sticker to go on the back of his vehicle that says “Land of the Free Because of the Brave.” These resources were compiled with idea that the families of the men and women serving our country in the United States Military would have access to specific information pertaining to them. The Staff at ClassBrain appreciates and respects what it takes to be a member of the Armed Forces and we thank those who protect our rights and freedom every day.

Pledge of Abstinence 
The Pledge of Abstinence is a simple gesture that lets the troops know that as long as they’re gone it’s not business as usual for you and that you will be thinking of them until they get back. Let them know you're doing more than talking about the war or watching it on television.
