As we celebrate our inaugural holiday season, we want to take a moment to recognize those who are currently standing the watch at home, overseas, and in harms way.
At NavyMentor, we fully recognize that without your service, sacrifice and commitment to the mission, we would not be able to enjoy the freedoms and opportunities that the United States of America offers for everyone!
We also recognize that you do not sacrifice alone, but your families, shipmates, friends and communities also bear the burden of your service.
Please know that my family and I will always be appreciative and supportive of you and yours. We will do everything in our power to serve and support you.
If we can do anything to help you, please let us know.
Seriously call our bluff!
In addition, there are several organizations who are also keeping a watch. These organizations also aim to serve you and your family.
If you need to talk, or are not sure how to handle a situation you are encountering, they are standing-by 24/7 to serve you.
Here are a few of them:
