CavMom is a terrific mom and troop supporter. I've also asked her for addresses of people who might be willing to print some of our layouts to put up as posters in hospital wards or unit headquarters so troops can see them hanging. I'll be happy to email them to any one who volunteers to print! I'd suggest mostly 8.5. x 11 sizes, because it isn't likely they'll have wide format printers.
I once sent a picture of my grandson at 3 months of age and wrapped in an American flag to someone in Iraq and got back a picture of my emailed picture that was posted on a bulletin board over there. It was a very moving experience. Reminders of why they are there and who they are protecting may give them a little strength and added courage when it gets rough. Learning that we are grateful for their service is critical for their morale. And I know for sure they'd rather get mail than anything - well, maybe not including home-made cookies.....LOL!
I urge all of you to become involved, to hold out a warm hand to the most deserving of people, and leave your political views out of it, because it isn't about politics, its about one human reaching out to another in time of need and the lonliness of separation from their families. Every single freedom we enjoy in the U. S. is because they or someone like them fought for it at one time or another in our history.
