Support Our Troops

A very good friend emailed me this video from yesterday. I believe it was made by a 15 year old girl. It touched my heart and brought me to tears.

May is National Military Appreciation Month. I thought this video might help us all remember the men and women who are away from their families while they are serving our country.

I also thought I would add a link, for any of you who may be interested. The USO runs a program that for a donation of $25 you can sponsor a care package for the troops. An Operation USO Care Package at a minimum, includes requested items such as pre-paid worldwide phone cards, sunscreen, travel size toiletries, disposable camera and a message from the donor thanking them for their service and sacrifice.

P.S. Please do not make this a political forum. I did not post this video to begin a debate about war. I simply want to remember and support our troops. Thank you.

I agree. It isn't about how we feel about the war, it is about thinking about those kids out there away from us. And I think care packages are needed. The must all be so homesick...

I support the troops. I have 3 soldiers I send packages and letters to. Packages are once a month, letters once a week. I don't know if I can say this here, but I belong to Soldiers' Angels and I LOVE every second!!!!

Thank you for this post.
Very touching!

I saw this quote awhile ago, but don't know who it's from. "Whether we agree with why we're over there, these soldiers are dying to protect our freedoms."
