Yellow Ribbon America

By the Authority of Chairman of the Orange County Board Supervisors the following Proclamation is hereby issued:

WHEREAS, thousands of American men and women are stationed at locations around the world in service to our country, and whether it be as operational support or in facing combat, each of them is fighting for and defending our freedom; and

WHEREAS, it is very difficult for military families when their loved one is deployed as these family members must manage the daily routine that continues in the absence of their loved ones while they also cope with their concern for their well-being and anxiously await their safe return; and

WHEREAS, Now in it’s 13th Year Anniversary; Yellow Ribbon America’s “Operation Christmas For Our Troops & Their Families” has mobilized its annual grassroots effort  to help deliver Christmas support to America’s local Military Units and their Families; and

WHEREAS, The effort, which supports the National Guard, Reserve and Active Duty deployed and at home Military Units and their Families, began in November 2004 and has grown every year since is now the largest community based Christmas Holiday support effort for both our Nation’s Military Units and their Families; and

WHEREAS, The growth of Operation Christmas For Our Troops & Their Families has expanded operations which now includes special Christmas Parties for Americas Military and Military Families at Knotts Berry Farm located in Buena Park, California; and

WHEREAS, Yellow Ribbon America remains dedicated to serving our Nation’s Military and now hosts dozens of Christmas drive drop off locations around Orange County and even more around California and the rest of the United States for continual support for our Military and their Families;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT PROCLAIMED, THAT THE ORANGE COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS do hereby congratulate and thank Yellow Ribbon America for its service to the residents of Orange County and the efforts they make to improve the lives of United States Military Men and Women and their Families.
