For the second year in a row, Good Earth will be accepting donations for our Soldier Drive. Good Earth is the garden center, where I work. Dave is the owner and I truly appreciate his support in brightening the Holidays for our Troops.
I've set up boxes in both locations, with photos of the Soldiers who will receive our items. I must take a moment to thank Leslie and Diann for coming through for me in a pinch! A couple people at work, made great attempts to get their family members to be our Twenty-Ten Soldier...last minute everything fell through. This year, both Leslie and Diann (two friends of my son, John) scrambled quickly to provide me with the names and photos of Soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan! Good Earth has decided to will mail boxes to all of these Soldiers! I'm not sure if my readers recall last year; a Chief from Wright-Patterson AFB was in Iraq. Chief was kind enough to accept our donations and distribute these items to Airmen at different bases.
I've attached the photos. Please keep each and every one of these Warriors in your prayers. If you wish to mail items to add to the boxes, please drop me an e-mail for my address. If you wish to send a Christmas card or a tube of toothpaste! Every token of of thoughtfulness, is so greatly appreciated!
Allow me to introduce Justin, a Marine from CT on his second deployment in Iraq.
This group of Airman are from Wright-Patterson AFB, currently serving in Iraq.
These Airman are in Afghanistan through the Christmas Season. Leslie (front row)is a friend of John's from Wright-Patterson AFB.
May Almighty God protect each and every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine. May God bring them home safely.
