Supporting our Troops

Here's an interesting "degrees of separation" post. My wife posts on several medical sites, and tries to help out others who have to go through medical problems, as she has herself. In meeting and helping one young lady (hey, I'm 47, so I can call her young) through a difficult medical problem, we found out that her husband was an Army LT serving in Italy. Turns out he had been recently deployed to Afghanistan, and sent some good pics back. I thought I'd share them and show what an outstanding job our men and women in uniform are doing. Moral is high, despite what the left-wingnuts have to say. If you get a chance, and want to support our troups, I urge you to contact www.operationac.org and adopt a soldier or two.

The US Post Office has come up with two new boxes that are flat-rate without regard to weight. These are perfect to send heavy articles to APO and FPO addresses. They are only $8.50 per box. We send things like individual packets of salsa (the type you receive at McDonalds with your breakfast taco), powdered drink mixes, candy, mints, etc. All boxes bring smiles to soldiers in the field.

And don't think for a minute that it's not dangerous in Afghanistan. Look at the cache of boomers they found and detonated.

Say a prayer for those out there protecting our butts back home.
