I just wanted to mention a great organization that I am a part of: Soldier's Angels (www.soldiersangels.org
) Soldiers Angels is a no- profit organization dedicated to the support of our military (including veterans).
You can sign up to adopt a deployed soldier and send them letters and care packages. And, you can submit a soldier that you know to be adopted. This is really great for those soldiers who do not have any family support back home, or even for those that do that could just use extra support.
There is even knitting, crochet and blanket sewing teams that you can join, if you are talented that way!
As a former Army wife and now wife to a disabled veteran, I have seen first hand how important support is for our military overseas. Thank you to all of you that are already supporting or looking for ways to support your military members.
