Each of these numbers have significant meaning today!
As I type this post, there are 793 heroes waiting to be adopted. SoldiersAngels is an organization which makes it simple to adopt a soldier. Your commitment is easy; one letter each week and one package each month. It is such a small gesture, yet it means so much to these brave men and women. There are many soldiers who receive nothing at mail call. Please take a few moments, check out the website and do your small part to show support of our troops! They will be most grateful and trust me...you will smile!
There are 12 Marines who will not be allowed to watch the Super Bowl, even though they will present the colors. According to the several articles I have read today, this is an NFL decison. Come on, Folks...this is wrong. Please read the story here. I have already fired off my e-mail, voicing my displeasure in this decision.
There is 1 new blog, I would like to introduce! My youngest son, my inspiration for this blog has decided to join the blogosphere. AFJoker is John's blog, please stop by and welcome him to our world, offer some ideas of what you would like him to post or simply give him a 'hua'.
Well, there you have it..... 793, 12 and 1!

WOO-HOO! I received a reply to the letter I wrote earlier today regarding our Armed Forces color guard at the Super Bowl. Here is a snippet of the reply "Since we had not heard about this directly from the military, we contacted our military liaison for the color guard immediately to discuss the issue. After speaking with our military liaison for the color guard, we will host the members of the color guard (12 people) in the stadium. "
The moral of this blog: Good stuff happens, and the cost was merely a few moments of my life and a few moments from a bunch of other bloggers!
