Bringing Military Families Together Book by Book


Each year, around 100,000 military parents deploy, leaving nearly 250,000 children at home. That means millions of missed bedtime stories. But Veterans United Home Loans has teamed up with United Through Reading (UTR) to keep military families connected, and you can help! Here’s how:

  1. Select a children’s book or suggest your favorite below.
  2. Veterans United will donate a book to UTR in your honor.
  3. A military family will receive the book and UTR app access.

Using UTR’s app, service members can read stories aloud on video and send them home to their family. Their child receives a copy of the book, and the recording can be accessed at any time. This helps overcome time differences and spotty internet connections, and allows military kids to see their mom or dad whenever they need from anywhere in the world.
