If you’re like us, you appreciate the heck out of the troops, but don’t always know how or have the resources to give back. Well we’ve found a quick, easy, and next to free way to say “thank you” while also being thoughtful. Keep reading!
Troopons® is a program from the Support Our Troops organization helping to supply our troops overseas with coupons. Did you know that troops can use coupons up to 6 months after they expire!? For you crazy couponers like me, as you are going through your files, binders, etc and pulling out your old coupons, don’t throw them away! You can just as easily put them in an envelope and send them on their way to bigger things!
If you’re wondering if troops really use these coupons, please read below from the Troopons® website:
Japan, April 10, 2011:
“Good morning, On behalf of the Marines, Sailors, civilian employees and family members aboard Marine Corp Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, we would like to thank you and your organization for preparing and sending coupons to our service members and families. We truly appreciate your commitment and contribution to our coupon distribution program and would love for you to keep us on your mailing list. Our personal financial manager here at Marine and Family Services conducts a quarterly “Biggest Saver Coupon Contest,” and it has been a huge success here on the air station. Last quarter’s winner saved $216.95, and the biggest saver overall saved over $650. The winners receive a free one hour massage. As you can see, the work that you have put forth with these coupons was not in vain. Again, thank you for all that you do to support our military community.” Sincerely, Marine and Family Services, MCAS Iwakuni, Japan
