Operation Homefront has a network of field offices that oversee thousands of volunteers across the nation and has met more than 590,000 needs for military families over the last ten years. Fathead's commitment to work with all units of the US Armed Forces to create special order Fathead Customs of various unit's insignias and personnel will continue.

"Our service members and their families face life-size challenges every day," said Jim Knotts, President and CEO of Operation Homefront.  "We thank Fathead for their generosity, and we look forward to working with them to expand our mutual support to these deserving families in such a creative way."

Another engaging facet of the program encourages members of military and their families to enter Fathead's Salute To Service Sweepstakes.  The sweepstakes is open exclusively to active service members and members of their immediate family.  With Custom Fatheads, families can create memorable life-like images of their service members.  Family members can look up and literally see their enlisted loved one standing there and not just as a small photograph on a desk or refrigerator.  Custom Fatheads can be created as life-size, in either die-cut vinyl, vinyl mural or wrapped canvas.  Servicemen and women can also create a more size-friendly custom image of the family and friends they want close to them while stationed far away.  Five unforgettable custom Fatheads will be awarded in a monthly drawing on Fathead.com. 

"It is an honor to work with an organization as passionate as Operation Homefront and to give back, through them, to military service members and their families," says Joanna Cline, Chief Marketing Officer, Fathead.  We are also proud to offer our custom Fathead products to help families keep images of loved one close while they are apart." 

Fathead features a wide range of military branch insignias and logos including; United States Marine Corps, United States Army, United States Air Force, United States Navy and Army National Guard.  Fathead also features a variety of military vehicles including; F-22 Raptor, AH-1Z Super Cobra, F-15 Eagle, M1 Abrams Tank, OH-58 Kiowa Warrior, SR-71 Blackbird, UH-1 Huey, B-2 Spirit, F-16 Falcon, F-16 Fighting Falcon and F-117 Nighthawk.   To view the full range of military Fatheads and more visit Fathead.com where thousands of Fathead products can be found.  For more information, please contact: Abby Pougnet, AbbyPougnet@Fathead.com, (313) 373-6091.
