How we got started
The organization vision started in 2008 with a single person having a dream to support and encourage our military men and women at war. Having been in the military and also a disabled vet, Ron Hayman has experienced the joy of getting support from home and seeing the agony of receiving nothing from home. When he makes a new contact, he always asks who is not receiving Care Packages from home. The IHONORUSA.com organization achieved a 501c3 charity status while sending packages to the war zones in October 2012. In 2018 We shipped over 200 boxes to soldiers around the world. We have two modes of support to our deployed military and veterans. since 2008 we have sent over 800 care packages supporting our troops.
1. Send Military Care Packages to the war zone. Procure content to place in the boxes such as snacks, toiletries, first aid items, reading materials, games, movies and puzzles, cards, letters, Challenge Coins, letters and phone cards, and other content as available.
2. Military Care Packages for homeless vets in the Atlanta Metro Area. We will supply similar items to the homeless veterans that we send to deployed troops with the addition of soluble soap, which requires no rinsing and other things tailored for homeless men and women vets.

Ron, Laurie, and Margery,
I received two more awesome care packages last night from your organization and wanted to take a few moments to say thank you. Ron, I am glad your retirement is around the corner in the sense that I am sure you are looking forward to it after decades of work. Also after that short well deserved break, I am sure from your latest letter that you are going to dive full time into I Honor Your Service to America.
Here in Kabul, things have been busy as most of the team recently transitioned back to the U.S. and now we are integrating their replacements. The timing on the care packages was impeccable, and the new shirt is awesome (Boots on the Ground) so pass my compliments.
Outside that, the new crew has already used up most of the toiletry stuff, and I restocked our food stores so thank you again. Please tell Girl Scout Troop 14609 we at the National Mission Brigade appreciate their support and tell the kids who sent the questions that The team and I have read and among us answered all their interest. I would love to send a response to the class if you can send me a point of contact.

“. . . Soldiers love the support shown by our fellow Americans, especially young Americans. It gives us that extra push we need . . .”
“. . . When you’re in locations like some of us Soldiers are in, just getting a package with items that remind you of home brings your motivation up a level.”
– Michael A. – Nov 2013
“When we hear from the folks back at home we are reminded of why we are serving, why we are here, why we carry forward, and what it truly means to be an American soldier serving our country to protect our freedoms.”

“I shared the cookies and snacks with my Soldiers, and it is always appreciated. Thank you for keeping my Soldiers and me in your thoughts and prayers.”
