Supporting Our Troops

Friday, June 6, 2008

I won't get into politics or my feelings about the war here (at least not today). But I do believe a person can be supportive of our troops and their families without being in support of the war.

And I think that support is vital.
I can't imagine the stress of having to be a "single" parent while your husband or wife is away, often for months at a time. Or, having to live in a foreign country for years at a time, away from relatives. My hat is off to the people who are in these situations, and I pray their loved ones come home safely.

A few weeks ago I decided to send my unused grocery coupons to a military base. I've done it before, but it was a long time ago. This time, I wanted to have more of a hometown connection.

I went to to look for a local military wives group and found one on Pendleton. I sent an email and they were happy to hear from me even though I wasn't joining their group. 

I'm ready to send off my second batch. It doesn't take me a lot time, only costs a few stamps and is the least I can do. If anyone is interested please let me know and I'll get the information to you.


  1. What a great idea! When I get my head screwed on straight again ... I'll ask you for the info.


Thank you for visiting and letting me know your thoughts!
