Let's Say Thanks

I received this in an email at work and wanted to pass it on. The link below carries a selection of cards designed by children throughout the U.S. Choose a card, select a greeting, and hit send. The card will be delivered to a member of our armed forces serving overseas. It's quick, it's easy and it might mean a lot to someone to know their service is valued.

I'd like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the many men and women in our military who are away from home, family and friends this holiday season serving their country.

I'd also like to acknowledge our "at home heroes"--our law enforcement officers--and the service they provide to their communities and their country. They, too, often must be away from family during the holidays, because their jobs can never be put on hold.

Thanks to all the heroes at Christmas and always.

Thanks Laurie, a great idea. I know that the military has cut back on packages and letters because the the threat to the soldiers that they might get something sent to them that could hurt them. Sad but true.
That being said, this is a great way to get that card to someone who serves in the armed forces. I also have an address for a Chaplain at Drum, who is organizing care packages and cards for the 10th Mountain, my old unit, overseas. Quite a bit of discusssion went on about this with the RomVets. I bet they'd like the link. Thanks
Dawn

Oh and thanks to all those that keep us safe at home too.
Imagine life without them, it would be impossible. :)
