Do you want to support the troops?

UPDATE: I am going to keep this post on top for a little while. So support some troops.

Here's how.

If you support the troops or have been wondering how to do it—check these links out
If you like what they do, donate or help them out. I cannot tell you how much good you do when you're downrange and you get a package in the mail from someone who cares back home. A book, a can of Barbasol, a pine cone. It means a lot. The books you send overseas get read, and I would collect this stuff and send it out to my guys on the firebases to use. No political messages…just we support you. Also some great things for R&R and family members.

You will need your Soldier’s address with APO/FPO and when he/she is expected to return from overseas

Let me know if any of these are not what they seem to be and I will remove them but a cursory link to each one seems legit.
