Yeah, I think it's pretty awesome myself. I knew if I put it here, all of you would jump on it in a second. Isn't nice to tell any of those girls and guys we love them and to stay safe.

This is a fantastic idea! I have made this thread a "sticky" so it will stay at the top of the pile for as long as this program exists.

Wow, what a great thing to do. I don't know anyone serving, but that doesn't mean I don't care. No matter what one believes about the government or reasons for the war, you can't deny that our soldiers are risking their lives for us. God bless them. And thanks for the link!

That's such a good idea-- thanks for posting! My best friend's brother is a lieutenant in Iraq right now, and this Tuesday we had a shipping party and packed up boxes of soups, treats, magazines, books and CD's for his troop. We also made some cards for them. I was glad to be able to do something for them since I'm sure it must be so hard being away from their families this time of year.

Another way to show appreciation is to find a local family of a deployed service member and do something special to make their holiday and separation from their loved one easier.

I love it. To me there aren't enough words to say how thankful I am for our troops.
