OUR MISSION IS TO RAISE AWARENESS AND TO SUPPORT OUR ACTIVE AND VETERAN MILITARY MEMBERS FOR THEIR SERVICE
How to approach an Airman, Guardsman, Marine, Sailor or Soldier:
First, make sure you understand our mission and are comfortable communicating it. “Our Mission is to raise awareness and to support our active and veteran military members for their service by taking and posting selfies on social media."
Ask a military member or veteran that you know if he/she would like to take a selfie with you to further our mission of raising awareness and support for our military.
If you don’t know a military member personally and/or you are in a public place and an opportunity arises for you to introduce yourself to someone in uniform, please approach them by first thanking them for their service and then explain our mission to them prior to asking them to take a selfie with you. “I just want to take a moment and thank you for your service! I’d also like to ask you if you’d mind taking a photo with me for the "Selfie With A Soldier" Challenge. We are raising awareness on how our citizens can better understand the importance
of what you do and how we can best support you and our veterans. Would you mind if we took a
selfie photo together?”
Should he/she decline, and prefer not to have a selfie taken, please understand and respect their privacy. Let that person know he/she can go to Selfiewithsoldier.com to learn more if they are interested and then thank the person for their time and again, for serving our country.
