I was fortunate that my Dad was always at home for Father’s Day and now Grant, the father of my kids, is always here with them on Father’s Day. Not having Dad home because he is serving in the military deployed in another country far far away has got to be difficult for so many children on Father’s Day. That’s why this heart-warming story got me. I just had to share.
Deployed Dads Deliver Father’s Day Message!
While millions of children will be celebrating Father’s Day with their dads on June 21, for many children whose fathers are serving in the military, dad won’t be at home. But thanks to nonprofit United Through Reading and a very special storybook, there’s a way for every dad to tell his kids he loves them this Father’s Day – however far away he might be.
Nonprofit United Through Reading keeps military families connected by offering service members the opportunity to be video-recorded reading storybooks to their children at home from locations worldwide. Although the story may be recorded in a tent in Afghanistan, the child sitting at home watching it can feel like daddy’s home for a few moments before they go to sleep, or whenever they need him. Guess How Much I Love You celebrates the unique bond between father and child, and has struck a chord with many military families. The story serves as a reminder to children that no matter how far away they may be from their parent, their love remains strong enough to bridge even the greatest distances.
This heartfelt video was created especially for Father’s Day and features military parents reading Guess How Much I Love You to their children back home in a United Through Reading recording.

Wishing all Dad’s a very Happy Father’s Day this Sunday!
