Dave!Happy Veterans Day! To everybody who has served or is currently serving in our country's military, I offer my heart-felt thanks. It really should be Veterans Day every day of the year!

I've made no secret of my love for a very worthy cause which helps to bring a bit of "home" to American serviceman and servicewoman on duty far away... With this wonderful website, you can send a little care and support to a Soldier, Marine, Sailor, Airman, or Coast Guardsman who puts their life on the line every day in service of our country.

Even if you can't afford to send a care package, a hand-written card or letter of support would mean an awful lot to somebody who is missing their home, friends, and family. And never underestimate how good it will make you feel too!

Dave Soldier Note

If you would like to participate, the website offers a wealth of information on how to go about it (I've also written up some helpful hints here at Blogography).

Thanks again, Veterans!

    Very nice…you’ve got a wonderful heart!

  2. Aunt Robin says:

    Thanks, Dave; you said it all! 🙂

  3. I’m involved with some ladies with my cra(p)fting where we send blank cards that we make over so they can send cards to their loved ones back home. Greeting cards aren’t terribly easy to find there. 🙂

  4. The Duchess says:

    This is an interesting site that I just found to support out troops: Tits for Troops.

  5. Very good! I will begin to make cookies right away!

  6. Sybil Law says:

    My daughter and I are going to send out some cards. Thanks!

  7. Wonderful Vets’ Day post. And you? Are a saint. 🙂

  8. You know I feel the same way about anysoldier. It has been such an amazing experience for my kids and I. I think it is great for kids (or anyone really) to understand and learn to think of others. We actually got one really long letter back last year and it is still hanging up in our kitchen because it meant so much to the kids.

    I might add some other small thing you can do. Take a moment to call a vet you know and thank them for their service. It might seem corny but it makes a difference. They don’t have to be someone who served recently it can be someone much older. Every vetrens day I call my step-father and just thank him for his service back in Viet Nam and I have to say it means the world to him.

  10. Justin Scott says:

    Sometimes all it takes is one of your cartoons to really send the message along. This, I’d say, is one of those times.

    with the christmas season upon us i thought i mention that sears has a great track record for supporting our troops as well. they do much more than what is legally required to help out reservists and their families when they are called up by voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs for up to two years.

    you know, for those of us who would like to be able to do more to support our men and women in uniform but are unable to afford it.

    (btw, my husband says thank you for the thank you)
