SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The "I Served" sticker is now a program of Operation Homefront. Started in July 2009, organizer Scott Kreger and his dedicated volunteers and partner organizations have distributed more than 600,000 stickers that recognize the military men and women who served in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam.
"It started out as a simple concept, a way to allow those who served to identify themselves so others could say 'thank you' for serving our country," said founder Scott Kreger. "Our plan was to give out a sticker to everyone who served in IRQ and AFG. We now realize this concept needs to go on even after the current deployments end. We are very pleased to pass the program to Operation Homefront so that it can continue for years to come!"
Operation Homefront is a military support nonprofit that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of service members and wounded warriors. With a core value of honoring patriotism and service to country, continuing this program is an extension of existing programs.
"Operation Homefront has partnered with this program for a while, and admires its simple but meaningful approach to recognizing service members," said Operation Homefront chief executive officer Jim Knotts. "We are committed to continuing to make the stickers available for free to those who served."
