I’ve shipped military greeting cards to military families with ties to all 5 branches – Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Navy. Almost every design in the 2MyHero line has shipped to this state!
Florida is home to a whopping 13 military bases! For me personally, perhaps the most noteworthy (and not just because I’ve visited there) is MacDill AFB. It’s a big base and is unusual in that although MacDill is an Air Force Base, it is also home to many Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen.
I had the opportunity to tour MacDill with a fellow Blue Star Mother who was a retired USAF. She was a wonderful guide. She told me one thing that has stuck with me. I’ve heard countless other Airmen talk about this too – the Air Force personnel (active and veteran) love for golf. Many USAF bases have one or more golf courses either on a base or nearby. It’s apparently part of the Air Force culture. Not surprising for the retired and veteran Airmen. I’m pretty sure most retired colonels play golf regardless of their branch of service.
Another fun fact about the wonderful military peeps in Florida is that I have shipped a great many US Coast Guard military greeting cards to customers in this state. Individual and mixed packs, graduation, promotion, and birthday cards have all been ordered for Coastie families residing in Florida.
Auburndale, Beverly Hills, BocaRaton, Bradenton, Brandon, Bunnell, Cape Coral, Chuluota, Clermont, Cooper City, Coral Gables, Crestview, Davie, Deltona, Doral, Dover, Dundee, Dunedin, Ellenton, Eustis, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Fort Pierce, Groveland, Hialeah, Homestead, Indialantic, Jacksonville, Jupiter, Kissimmee, Largo, Longwood, Lutz, Lynn Haven, Macclenny, Melbourne, Merritt Island, Miami, Micco, Monticello, Mount Dora, Naples, New Port Richey, North Lauderdale, Ocala, Oldsmar, Orange City, Orange Park, Orlando, Oviedo, Pace, Panama City, Parkland, Pensacola.
And that’s not all! I thought it was interesting how many towns and cities with 2MyHero customers in Florida have water related names:
Apollo Beach, Barefoot Bay, Boynton Beach, Bonita Springs, Clearwater, Coconut Creek, Coral Springs, Cutler Bay, Daytona Beach, Del Ray Beach, Edgewater, Fernandina Beach, Flagler Beach, Key West, Lake Mary, Lake Worth, Lakeland, Longboat Key, Miami Beach, Ormond Beach, Palm Bay, Palm Coast, Panama City Beach, Perdido Key, Pompano Beach, Port Charlotte, Port Orange, Port Saint Lucie, Royal Palm Beach, Spring Hill, St Pete Beach, Vero Beach, West Palm Beach.
It’s not surprising with so many cities represented, that cards for all 5 branches and almost every 2MyHero design from enlisted and Commissioned Officer graduation cards to retirement cards and all the designs in between have been sent to military families in this state.
When the orders for customers in Florida first started rolling in on Amazon in particular, my guess was that these customers were grandparents. But I’ve been proven wrong. I’ve interacted with several customers who are moms and Airmen (or women) who live in this sunny state.
Thank you Florida for all your support for our military men and women! Always faithful!
In these times of social distancing, families are unable to attend the graduation ceremonies as they once did. But they can still express their pride and admiration for their new enlisted or commissioned officer Airman, Coastie, Marine, Sailor, or Soldier by sending them one or more of the fitting graduation and encouragement military greeting cards from 2MyHero. For families with new recruits heading to basic training in the coming year, the mixed pack of 6 offers a fantastic saving and is a wonderful gift for the spouse, mom, dad, or grandparent.
2MyHero mixed packs of enlisted graduation, encouragement, Drill Instructor Thank You, and birthday cards are available for all 5 branches.
I want to thank the families and communities in Florida that have purchased 2MyHero military greeting cards and faithfully support our troops. I Your Airmen, Soldiers, Marines, and Sailors are thankful for your encouragement as well. Handwritten messages sent in an appropriate military greeting card are always appreciated and treasured. Some will hold onto these special gifts for the entire time of their military service. Maybe even beyond their military service.
If you’re from Florida please comment below with a “hooyah” if you love a Sailor, “oohrah” if you love a Marine, “hooah” if you love a Soldier, or “aim high” if you love an Airman, or “always ready” if you love a Coastie. Let me know what part of the state you’re from and which branch of the military your hero is either actively on duty with or a Veteran of. You can also connect through our contact page on the website.
