It's Sandstorm Season in Iraq!
Pray for our soldiers as they endure these storms!
Although everyone of us find it a challenge during this economic crisis, it is so very important to continue to send packages to our soldiers. They need, no I take that back....they DESERVE our support! Take a few moments and visit SoldiersAngels. Please make the commitment to one soldier; write a letter and send along some of the items we easily remove from a linen closet or medicine cabinet. I have addresses for MudPuppy and Zachary, two heroes I have featured on my blog numerous times. If you need ideas of what to send, please e-mail me!
Last night, I attended an Operation Welcome event. My friend KD and her sister joined me, for they heard of a soldier who was returning home. This Airman is the friend of a friend, so all we had was a name to look for! We found him! We hugged him, it was a surprise to him that we would be there to greet him! Last night over 800 heroes returned home! It never ceases to amaze me, how these men and women thank us! They thank us! It just blows me away. Shaking their hands, is by far the greatest honor of my life. I could not imagine being in the presence of anyone else in this world, and feel more privileged. From the moment we see the first soldier walk through the doors, to the final soldier walking through our welcome line...my eyes remain filled with tears.
May Almighty God bless each and every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine!
