I was pleasantly surprised last week when a couple of people in my office came up to me and asked about anysoldier.com: they wanted to know if it was a legit way to support the troops this holiday season.
I was touched that others would care, and told them it was a great way to support a soldier.
I also told them about contacting a local base's PA (public affairs) officer: they usually know if anyone of their deployed folks are not getting much mail, and will pass along a name or two, for a holiday package. My daughter's girl scout troop sent packages to a few marines from Camp Pen last year.
MWR is also sponsoring a support event/raffle for Walter Reed Army Hospital, for the housing unit that provide rooms for the visiting families of recovering soldiers.
Lots of ways to show your support.
David - stay safe over there. Our prayers are with you and the troops.
My wife is heading over to Afghanistan early in the New Year for a six month deployment and taking my Doxa with her - it's bullet proof and she's promised to bring it back in perfect working order. She's really good at keeping her word so I know that she'll come back safe and sound with the Doxa on her wrist.
Although it looks like I may be going back over right after her, so we may do a handover of the Doxa in-country.
Again, thanks for the warm welcome. It's getting a bit chilly over here. Looking forward to my new rubber strap to show up, I'll post a pic when it does. The guys I support over here are from Hawaii, so they complain a lot when the temp goes below 70.:think: If anyone wants to send anything to some of the troops over here, they can send it to me and I will pass it on. My daughters school sends cards to the guys, and they appreciate everything they receive from the folks back home. You can send cards or anything to me, and I'll pass it on.

Sorry to ramble on so much. But again, thanks for your support, the soldiers here really do appreciate it.
