    Just Say Thanks!

    How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one !.

    If you go to the web site at http://www.letssaythanks.com you can pick out a thank you card and the Xerox Corporation will print it and it will be sent to a Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine that is currently serving in Iraq. You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services. It is FREE and it only takes a second. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Soldiers received a bunch of these?
    I sent one, and it is very easy and takes less than a minute.
    I know you'll pass along.

    Done.

    It's interesting to note that all the childrens' card designs are from red states (with the possible exception of one from MD.)

    Done. Sent mine in with a custom message. I recommend that everyone who does this make a custom message, it will mean more to the soldier.

    It would be great if one of the MOD's could sticky this for a while, as this would be really nice for all of The High Road members to participate in. If we don't show support of our troops, they won't feel support, thus affecting morale.

    That is a cool deal, and yes, it's free. No need to enter an email or anything.

    I picked custom message, I'm sure it means more than some canned response.

    Takes 1 minute and if it gives 5 seconds of amusement or 1/5th of a smile to one of the guys over there, it's well worth it.

    Done. Ever notice how hard it is putting a thank you for such a big sacrifice in just a few short words?

    And to quote Sgt Devildog.."Semper Fi!"

    http://www.anysoldier.com/

    I like anysoldier because you can see individual requests, leave dates, living conditions, # of personnel, etc. This is helpful so you don't send microvae popcorn to someone that doesn't have access to a microwave. You can send specialized items to individuals or groups. Jerkey is always popular. What is good about this site is that it is updated by the soldiers themselves (for the most part) so when they get enough or too much of one item they can change their request. I like to send stuff to the K9 units. Treats for the 2 legged and 4 legged soldiers.

    For general donation you can use the USO.

    Thank you I will send packages to anysoldier.com. I knew what it was like to get them when I was deployed. I am still touched by the generosity of the public backing the soldiers received.

    Done, with personal message, its hard to cram something that important and emotional into a short note. took me almost 45 min to get it to say what I wanted.

    20 minutes for three lines. Still working on it, actually.

    I think I might make this a daily thing.

    Lance Cpl. William C. James was the proud recipient of Operation Gratitude’s 150,000th package. Operation Gratitude is a nonprofit organization that assembles and distributes packages to servicemembers deployed all over the world. James and other Marines from 1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment were lucky recipients of a few of the packages.

    My nephew goes back to the Sandbox in February for his 3rd Tour. Lets all see that he receives a package or 2 when that time comes!
