Whether you agree with the military movements in the Gulf or not, please take the time to support those people who are giving of themselves, our soldiers overseas. Having been raised in a military family, I realize it is not only the soldier who sacrifice for their country, employers, parents, children ,best friends, the list goes on and on. Please take a moment to express your support and gratitude. http://www.letssaythanks.com/

That is a great website, I just sent one. You see, me and my whole family know what it's like to have someone serving, my son-in-law was in Iraq last year during the holidays, so my daughter spent them with us. He has returned home safely and will spending Christmas with her this year. We are very thankful, and believe me, the support shown is greatly appreciated by those serving as well as their families, particularly during the holidays.

Thanks, I was so impressed with Xerox for doing this too. I know it must be costing them a lot but it is something the troops really need for morale. I'm really glad they don't limit the number you can send too. I ended up sending thirteen in a row before I got distracted and had to do other things. I know right now the cards won't make it in time for the holidays but hopefully it will help cheer some of the post-holiday blues.

So out of curiosity, did you send at least one card?

I have the greatest respect for all of our troops. They really put up with a lot. My mom's three brothers served as sailors in WWII and returned alive and well, although one of the brothers who served on a hospital ship refused to discuss his experiences. My dad's brother served as a soldier in the Korean War and also returned alive and well.

Wow, you are so blessed to have had so many family members serve and survive the wars. I'm sure it took a huge toll on your Mom's family though. thanks for sharing your experience. I know right now the soldiers out there, separated from their families, could use some support.
