Why not more than just one person honey? I think it would make a huge hell of a difference if we did something for more than just one person too. That would cheer everyone up!

I agree especially when it takes so little effort time/to do something like this. I have a problem with the whole support the troops thing when it becomes a are you for/against the war issue but this little gesture shows someone you care, thought of them and are grateful for their individual sacrifice without ever making a comment on the pros or cons of the war itself.

What a great idea. I could probably do several. I hope that this gets a great response. I suppose I should start now, because I usually get behind as I get closer to the holiday. I know some people might have a hard time writing, but I think I should be able to do it.

that is a really great idea! not only american soldiers should not be forgotten, but our own canadian vets also. if they didnt think enough of our country to fight for it, we wouldnt be in the place we are today, enjoying these freedoms. lets be thankful for them both!
