Serve America Act
By Valerie Jarrett, Neil Bush, and Michelle Nunn
The first immigrants to America came seeking freedom, but they survived -- and, in time, came to thrive -- because of their determination and because of each other. They valued self-reliance, but in times of strife they also knew could rely on neighbors, friends, sometimes even strangers to offer a helping hand.
That neighbor-helping-neighbor spirit is woven into the DNA of the American spirit. It defines in a very real sense who we are as a people.
It also unites us.
As military deployments became more common for National Guard and Reserve troops, the emotional
strain hits children left behind especially hard. Operation: Military Kids (OMK) supports military youth
age 5-18 with outreach programs to help them cope with the stresses of being away from their parents
serving far from home.
