http://www.uso.org/whatwedo/specialprograms/Here is a site where you can go and sponsor a care package for your service men. Things like a camera, shaving gear and other items are included and I think it only costs 25 dollars. There are other different programs too. There are 130 centers and there might be one near you!Just thought if you didn't know you just might want to.

just to spread some extra info there is also www.anysolider.com and you can write letters and send care packages to them. I have used this site before.

I want to look in to this. the local Vfw collects items to send to troops and the local craft store donates yarn for crafters to knit or crochet hats and acarves. I think we can't do enough for those brave people in the Armed Forces.

I agree they are on the job in a foreign land and may not agree with the politics involved. We owe then appreciation and care. I hope you can coordinate with this site...without the Here of course in the link..lol There are different programs so I am sure they could something that the VFW could utilize. Thanks so much for responding. Only 3 responses in 24 hours....so sad!
