Today I sent out a box with toilet paper, plastic baggies (for guess what), wipes, snacks and ice tea mixes to a bunch of service men serving in Iraq-living without any electricity or running water. Imagine their daily existence in 100+ degree heat and working 15+hours a day serving and defending our country – the last section of that sentence says it all.
I’m not posting this to be crude or to say yahoo for me–just to say that there is a need for these things and that immediate tangible support-no matter how humble is so very important to the well fare of our men and women who are serving in a most difficult place and time.
Today I started reading Independent Patriots for America: http://eaglesup.us/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=106
a blogg off of the Eagles Up site. Harry Riley, COL, USA, Ret-has written articles about the importance of not being a passive patriot.
