As much as we’re excited to celebrate Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer with a little beach and barbeque, we want to be sure to acknowledge the members of our military who, along with their families, have sacrificed so much for our freedom and are the real reason for the day.

Whether you’d like to donate online to military-related charities or learn how you can use technology to support the troops, take a closer look at some of the resources we’ve rounded up over time. It’s the perfect opportunity to say “thank you” and show your kids what the spirit of the Memorial Day holiday is all about.

For more information about how you can use tech to support our troops on Memorial Day (and any day), check our archives. And thank you to our military and their families for their service. 

A big cheers to all of our troops and their families too from everyone at Cool Mom Tech. We thank you for your service.
