What to do when in-person isn’t an option?

We are all affected differently by the current COVID-19 situation. Some in more personal ways than others.

For parents and families who have a son or daughter currently at basic training for the US Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines or Coast Guard the mandate to “shelter-in” means that they are unable to attend one of the most important moments in their children’s lives – graduation from boot camp.

I’ve had several customers contact me and let me know they are grateful because although they are unable to be at the graduation in person, they are able to send 2MyHero branch-specific military greeting cards instead.

Of course, they would prefer to be there in-person. There is no question about that. But given the context and brevity of the current pandemic that simply is not an option. Phone or FaceTime video calls are certainly important and helpful. But the power of the written word remains and perhaps even increases in times such as these.

The current pandemic situation is unprecedented and thus an opportunity to write down inside the 2MyHero military greeting card individual and specific details about how the situation is impacting the sender and receiver. These are sentiments the receiver may want to hold onto for years to come. Such details cannot be communicated or held onto through a phone call or video call like they can in a military greeting card.
