Card to the troops

Here is a little something everyone can participate in.

Something cool that Xerox is doing:

If you go to http://www.letssaythanks.com you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier who is currently serving in Iraq. You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services.

All of the cards have been created by schoolchildren and the hardest part is deciding which one to choose.



It is FREE, you don’t have to sign up, and it only takes a second.

I like finding these things, especially since I never know when I'm going to be on the receiving end.

Our daughter is currently trying to get her school to send care packages to a Marine unit in Iraq, they're just finalizing the details.
From what I was told, these Marines are operating from remote posts and are unable to get to the PX on a regular basis so they've requested some basics like personal hygiene supplies and snacks. They also requested letters and pictures from home.
If anyone would like to help these guys out I can give you the contact info.

Here is the link to one of my pages where I put some troop support sites also.
http://kg4kpg.tripod.com/id58.htm Has a couple pop-ups, but I can't afford my own domain so I suffer.

Here is what we are doing, we have a friend who is over there and our cub scout pack and girl scout troop have been collecting things for them to ship over. They have requested cans of tuna, soap, chocolate, etc. So for the past couple of weeks we have been collecting canned food and such to send over to them. The package goes out next week.

A way to help out is to go to your local recruiters office (Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, etc) and ask them what you can do, or what you can put together to help these fine men and women over there.

My parent's church will be sending my team care packages when we go back over. We're embedded, meaning no PX's for us... Anything from home is good to get when you're up in the boonies with no one around except the nationals (locals).

Thanks for the link!

The son of a very good long time friend is now in Kyrgyzstan in the Air Force. We sent him a care package with a bunch of goodies for Christmas in the hope that it will lighten the burden of being away from home this time of year. I think anything we can do to support the troops is a good thing.

HEY ALL!

I just wanted to say Thank You to all of you that send care packages and cards to deployed troops. It always made me smile and feel good knowing ya'll are behind us and support us. I've spent 3 different christmas's in Iraq and loved to get letters or cards from different school classes or people i didn't even know. I've also kept every letter,card and picture that i have recieved because of what they mean.


(sometimes it's all troops get from home. some of them dont have family)

My wife sends care packages to the troops in Afgan and Iraq they really love it. Its cool because they send nice things back to us, beautiful Iraqi emroidered rugs, certificates of thanks etc

Theres a website whos name escapes me right now where you can go and see who needs what, they hook you right up with a specific individual and their needs/wants.
www.anysoldier.com i think. take a look, you have no idea what pleasure a simple thing like a pack or cards or a DVD or something brings to those in danger.

Once again, Christmas time is upon us. Let's take a second out of our day to drop a note to the men and women who make it possible for us to be safe at home with our families this season.
