National Security is about supporting active duty military and their families.  There are many different ways to help.  As individuals and units many already do without even know it. 

​Did you know that sending care packages fall under that category?  It does.

I know that we have seen it a couple of times go out.  However, I wanted to remind you.  The American Legion Auxiliary National Headquarters has partnered with ShipThrifty to allow for a better way to ship boxes and save money.
This is taken directly from Nationals Website:

Shipthrifty believes in empowering people through shipping.  With over 700 tons of packages shipped at a 99.9% success rate, Shipthrifty is an expert at fulfilling shipping needs for those looking to ship 1 to 1,000 packages.  ALA members have access to the free to use site that allows for users to:

  • Easily create shipping labels and print from home.
  • Save addresses for future shipping.
  • Access discounted rates.
  • Easily ship anywhere, including military bases and overseas

With a focus on supporting our military families, Shipthrifty also provides tips, workshops, and support for shipping individual military care packages as well as care package drives.
To learn more and begin shipping hassle-free, go to or use code “ALA” at sign-up.   

Another thing for National Security is R.E.D. Friday.  Wear red on Fridays to Remember Everyone Deployed.
