Military support


TOPICS: Announcements
KEYWORDS: anysoldier; carepackage; letters; penpals; supportourtroops; thankstroops; weappreciateyou
Check out this great site! 400-500 troops have agreed to be the distribution point for packages and mail sent to them. Just look at some of the letters from these guys and gals...they are overwhelmed with the support from Americans who appreciate what they're doing! It's my favorite military support group!

I love the site too!

Hey, do you really love popcorn? I once bought a fifty pound bag of unpopped corn at Sam's Club and almost single-handedly ate the entire bag, popped in a copper-bottom skillet.

OH MY GOODNESS, I've found a kindred spirit! LOL I want one of those machines TOO! Here in Oklahoma, we have the OETA Movie Club every Sat. night on PBS...they have this guy, BJ Wexler...he goes and gets a big bucket of popcorn out of the machine while introducing a classic movie of some sort and I just drool.

Here is a picture, even!

Kinda gettin' off the subject of your thread, I guess...but I'm bumping it to the top anyways! :-)

We could all put together just one extra gift for a soldier overseas.

I suspect a plot.

Bumping.

I've become addicted to this site. I've sent out 3 packages of letters and little treats. I've found myself grocery shopping for the family, and stopping in my tracks discovering items that I think the soldiers could use.

Great site!

The posters in Iraq and Afghanistan now number over 3,000, they ask for as little as simply letters of support. By reading their posts, you will get the *latest news* of the war effort.

You can get a flat postage rate box at the post office for free, and pay $7.70 to send a box of goodies to a soldier/marine/airman/marine who has little support from home. They mostly ask for little, just support.

This is a great cause. Visit http://www.anysoldier.com Click on "where to send" and read some posts from our soldiers... their posts fill in the blanks the media chooses to ignore. Read the posts for a few days, and you will learn much.
