What have you done to show your support for our military troops over seas? I would love to hear your responses.

My husband is retired but you never really leave the service. My future son in law is there now too. I am getting his care package together and teaching my daughter the little things they miss the most. I send enough for him to share and she can't believe my packing techniques.

I think that is wonderful. Does her class ever hear back from the soldiers? I bet it gives her a wonderful feeling as well. Thanks for the support and thank your daughter as well.

"Ours is not to reason why..." When someone is in the military they made a commitment to serve. Not only those who make the decisions, but those of us who have placed those people into a position of power. The men and women who are sent over seas go because that is what they have committed to do if so ordered. To deny them aid and comfort would be to deny ourselves. I have participated in email campaigns making sure soldiers with internet access get email. Usually a very basic news letter type thing, covering entertainment, local news for the area the person is from, even items from the 'gossip' column from their hometown paper. It take a bit of research to add in the local extras, but copy and paste has saved my fingers literally thousands of times. Also personal items that we are all used to, shaving cream, safety razors, deodorant, shampoos, hair rinse are all things that are difficult to come by in some countries. I have participated in drives to gather large quantities of such items to send in 'care packages' to those who might need and appreciate them.

Well, until recently, I showed my support as being one of them! Now, I work at the local VA hospital. I also remind people not to feel negaitve about our service members about the war. If you don't like it, then put your anger at the poloticians, and not the hard working people that put their lives on the line.

I haven't done anything per se. But I support my husband who is in the Air Force. He hasn't gone overseas yet but is expected too. I also was in the air force and overseas for 8 and 1/2 years.
