Join An American Moment on Veterans Day

to its target audience (Catholic or Protestant) and common features like letters from children and inspirational music. Catholics will find a full Mass recorded at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.; Rosary meditations; and a variety of prayers. Protestants will find faith-filled commentaries and messages from pastors, chaplains and troops.

FRONTLINE FAITH has distributed more than 30,000 MP3 players to date, but its task remains daunting. According to numbers from the Department of Defense, reflecting active-duty troops through Jan. 31, 2012, more than 960,000 self-identify as Christian. “When I receive emails from our military thanking us for the players we send to them” Lomonte said, “and what the players mean to them, I am humbled and blessed and I feel very small compared to what they are doing for me and our country. We are all in this together. So when one of us hurts, we all hurt. Our troops need our spiritual support. It is our duty to help our troops with prayer and players.”

That duty – helping – can take a variety of forms in addition to making An American Moment a priority on Nov. 11:
• Donating as little as $24 to produce and distribute a FRONTLINE FAITH MP3 player;
• Sharing news of the project in church communities to help spread the word about FRONTLINE FAITH;
• Sharing personal stories from the front, or those of family members deployed;
• Connecting FRONTLINE FAITH to online social communities:
o Like and share the FRONTLINE FAITH Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-FRONTLINE-FAITH-Project/135818756434815;
o Follow FRONTLINE FAITH on Twitter – @FrontlineFaith.
