No doubt, we are all feeling the pinch of the recession.
Times are tough, stresses are high...everyone is feeling the effects of our current economy.
As a result of these difficult times; an organization by the name of "Treats for Troops" shut down as of June 21st. For six years, 'TFT' has been dedicated to sending packages to our soldiers. I fear, this may become a trend among volunteer groups, who donate their time and goods.
PLEASE don't let this happen.
Our soldiers deserve letters and packages from home.
These brave men and women have voluntarily stepped up, to be the defenders of our nation. Please don't take them for granted.
Our military consists of sons and daughters, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, cousins, nephews and nieces, grandsons and granddaughters, neighbors.
I received the nicest letter from my Marine; I am honored to be his Angel! He spoke warmly of his family, his love of God and his pride for our country.
There is a certain MudPuppy among us, who celebrates a birthday next month! Will he be home, enjoying a cold beer with his buddies and seeing his mom's eyes? No! He will still be in Afghanistan, still living in dust, still avoiding a hit by an IED, still fighting for us.
If you have never sent a package to a soldier, I'm asking you to do it once.
If you have sent a package or two in the past, thank you! Please send one more!
If you feel you can write one letter a week and mail one package a month to a soldier...please visit SoldiersAngels.
If you would like the address for Zachary, MudPuppy or Christopher (Holly's beau)...please let me know!
These are OUR soldiers!
May Almighty God Bless each and every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine!
