SUPPORT YOUR UNITED STATES SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN
Did you know the military no longer accepts "Any Service Member"mail? That stinks, but there is no reason you can't do your part to help our country's armed forces. There are many reputable organizations ready and willing with the goal of providing a morale boost to our military.
When your in your home surrounded by those you love, when you are soaking in a refreshing sweet smelling, relaxing bubble bath, or eating whatever your heart desires at the moment and going to your bedroom at night for a safe, comfortable nights sleep, think about those trying to get a moments shut eye in a war torn country hoping no mortar falls during the night or no one sneaks in to cut their throats. They have no bubble bath, they're lucky to have clean water at all, they are fortunate to be able to heat their rations before eating them, and they taste nasty at best. So next time you're enjoying all the comforts that these fighting men and women over there are safeguarding for America remember them.
Below is a list of services provided by caring organizations and if these aren't enough you can go to this email address for even more to choose from. www.Army.mil/howyoucanhelp.

GIFT CARDS FOR TROOPS. . . My personal favorite!
The Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) provides merchandise and services to militaty famailes and uses earnings to supplement Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) programs. Service members can buy anything with gift cards from baby clothes to Energy Star appliances with gift cards purchased through AAFES. Learn more at: http://www.aafes.com/
It sounds like they get lots of freebies doesn't it? Well think about what they have given up and sacrificed for us, for our freedoms. There is not enough in this world to compensate these brave men and women and their immediate families. PLease help, no amount is too small especially just sending letters and cards to let them know we appreciate their sacrifices.
GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY and GOD BLESS AMERICA.
