    Here's an enlightening video from Fox News profiling the life of a California food stamp user. They (rightfully) explain how Obama took away the food stamp restrictions and this allow able-bodied adults without children to get free food on our dime.

    The care packages for soldiers based near Kandahar will be mailed by the end of next week in order to reach them by 9/11. It would be nice to put thank you notes and letters to our soldiers from as many people as possible in the boxes. Our efforts to let our soldiers know that they are still deeply appreciated could really help their morale right now. I have about 50 sheets of paper with American flag background that I can print letters or notes on. You can either post your note on this thread or FReepmail your letter to...

    11/19/2009 - WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- The USO has changed a lot in 68 years and the organization marked another milestone in the group's history of supporting the military Nov. 18 when it sponsored a care package service specifically for female servicemembers. While previous USO care packages were unisex, containing little sundries from home -- snacks, magazines, toiletry items -- the new line of female-specific packages contain items specifically requested by servicewomen such as cosmetics, moisturizers and special soaps. In a ceremony at the Rayburn House Office Building here, Congress members joined servicemembers and volunteers, including Dr. Jill Biden and Speaker...

    We have volunteer Soldier "contacts" on the "Where to Send" page. Click through the names and select the one(s) you wish to support. They list what the folks they represent want and need. We even have a search capability so you can easily identify what the troops need most. All the Soldiers involved in this effort are military volunteers stationed in areas that are in harm's way. You send your support (letters and/or packages) addressed to them and when they see the "Attn: Any Soldier®" line in their address they put your letters and packages into the hands of Soldiers...

    The high school I work for is starting a collection contest next week of items needed for our men and women serving overseas. Here is what I have heard about this event so far.

I have not seen this list as of yet but I did hear that the highest point values would be given to letters written to the troops. At the end of the contest, collected items are to be sent to our soldiers and the class with the highest number...
  • Students make a difference for troops

    Students at Howenstine High Magnet School will be collecting donations for troops serving in Afghanistan as part of Make a Difference Day. But the students' efforts are not a one-day deal. Instead, Corrine Blum's service learning class decided to adopt a Marine unit as a yearlong project. They sent a box of letters and personal items to the troops last month and are now planning to adopt an Army unit. The project began when Blum told her students she was planning to send a package to a family friend serving in Afghanistan. She asked her students if they wanted to...

    KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan, Oct. 15, 2009 – In a country where fewer than 30 percent of people are considered literate, U.S. forces are working to help in rebuilding Afghanistan’s education system, which has been devastated from 30 years of war, anti-education politics and an unstable government.
