    Support the Troops for the Holidays

    Well, I am doing this again this year hoping that some of the people here from Mice Chat will be able to print out and send our posts to members in the military for the holiday.

    I think it is only right that we give the men and women overseas thanks for doing what they are doing for us. Hopefully, since they can not be home to enjoy the holidays with their families, they will enjoy reading our posts to them.

    I also found a website made by Xerox in which you can click on a card you want to send the troops, and then that card will be printed out and sent to a soldier in Iraq.
    Here is the link if you are interested:

    I personally have the 100% respect for the men and women fighting for us and my thoughts and prayers go out to them, especially during this upcoming holiday season. Thank you very much boys and girls who are overseas fighting for our freedom, and I hope you know that you are not forgotten here on Mice Chat.

    Now it's your turn chatters.
    (Feel free to print out these posts and send them to anybody in the military, Navy, army, etc. that you know .)

    Re: Support the Troops for the Holidays

    My brother-in-law was in Iraq last Thanksgiving, Christmas and all the way through just beyond Easter. My wife and I got together a big package of 'Christmas' stuff and sent it to he and his troop in Iraq. They appreciated it so much.

    Bro-in-law is home in the States now - and actually he and the family are out here visiting us and meeting the baby and such.

    I think this is definatly the best time to start this thread because of Veterans Day and the President just dedicated a museum to those serving in the military today.

    Supporting the troops but not the reason they're there or the guy who sent them there.

    I'm a Marine brat by the way, got two uncles over there right now.

    Re: Support the Troops for the Holidays

    My partner and I were discussing something similar here last night. Seems Fort Carson by us is massively expanding and we were wondering what we could do for all the families that would be moving to our area.

    Of course, the military doesn't want us to exist, but that's their problem, not ours. We want to help.

    They spoke of hosting families and thought that might an option. BBQ anyone? In the snow? Don't drop your burger, that's the only thing...

    DW, if you do find anything about writing to the men and women overseas, let me know. I'll do some research too. Might be something we can do with the writing group. A series of letters to younger members, so they know they aren't alone, kinda thing.

    I would be more then willing to write some.

    Thanks for the thread,
    Peace,
