Let us all give thanks

The holiday season is upon us and we wish you and your family the Happiest of all the upcoming Holidays. We are only able to celebrate these holidays in the method of our choice because of the brave men and women of our armed forces who fight to protect our freedoms. This season we ask that you all take a little time to say thank you to them.
If you go to this web site, you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier 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 easy and quick. You are asked for you name and hometown only, no e-mail address or any other information. You pick the cover of the card you want to send and then pick a message from a number of ones that they offer. That is it; you could have done it in the time it has taken to read this message. Do it now, don’t put it off.

If you would like to send a personal Holiday card to service member the American Red Cross,, has a web site that will enable you to do this. They will provide an address and guidelines as to where to send your personal card and they will forward it on.

Whether you support the war or oppose it, you still need to have some compassion for those members of our military that have been sent away from their families to serve you and us. It is such an easy thing for us to do and it will have a huge impact on those far away souls who receive your card that says “I care about you”.

Feel free to pass this along to your friends and family and get them involved. Now more than ever, we can all say that “We are proud to be an American” and that we do indeed live in the “land of the free and the home of the brave”.

Happy Thanksgiving, Love,

Linda and Mike (AKA the Fat Man)
