No matter your views of the war, Please Support OUR Troops!!

DALLAS (Army News Service, Oct. 17, 2007) - While the holidays may still seem far away, Americans hoping to show their support to deployed troops must be aware of some rapidly approaching deadlines set by the Military Postal Service Agency: mail going parcel post must be sent by Nov. 14 while first-class mail must be sent by Dec. 10 to arrive by Dec. 25.

In addition to deadlines, several other factors must be considered when sending mail downrange. For example, each country has customs regulations that apply to all incoming mail, pertaining to everything from food items to reading materials. Furthermore, military units may also have additional restrictions concerning incoming mail imposed by unit commanders relative to size and weight to ensure logistics support can handle the heavy mail load. Finally, all packages and mail must now be addressed to individual servicemembers as required by U.S. Department of Defense regulations.

In order to help facilitate the mailing process and avoid many of the obstacles that come with the traditional care packages, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service created "Gifts from the Homefront," a campaign that allows anyone to make a direct and tangible contribution to military morale with a gift certificate that can be redeemed for nearly anything a specific servicemember wants.

Four years ago I started Treats For Troops (dot com)with one simple mission: to make it safe and easy for every American to send packages and messages of support to our men and women in uniform year round.

Four years later the need to spread holiday cheer to these brave fighting men and women – many serving in some of the most culturally-isolated and dangerous places on Earth – has never been greater.

Your support means so much to them – but don't take my word for it. Our December 2007 Newsletter is filled with photos, stories and notes from these outstanding men and women for whom receiving your packages and letters are literally the best part of their day!

Some will make you smile; some will make you proud, some may even bring a tear, like the one that starts, "I don't get much mail..."

For our soldiers far from home, the holidays can be one of the loneliest times of the year. And this year support for our troops is down, a casualty of the political controversy surrounding the War on Terror.

Click here to find out how you can let our troops know they are not forgotten this holiday season. And a sincere "thank you" to each and every one of you who sends a package that makes a soldier smile.

Wishing us all a safe and happy holiday,

Deborah Crane Founder, Treats For Troops

Stupid is as stupid does...JNM...and you are stupid. The US Military is trained to break things and kill people, send in the red cross with Military support if needed but that is NOT their purpose...fuckin' fool liberals.

If you go to this web site, www*LetsSayThanks*com 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.

When doing your Christmas cards this year, take one card and send it to this address. If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these wonderful special people, who have sacrificed so much for each of us, would get.
