On A More Serious Note.

This morning on the news I heard that fifty-0ne U.S. soldiers died in Iraq in April of 2008. This compelled me to do some research. As of about 10:00 this morning pacific time, 4,064 of our troops have died in Iraq. In addition, 496 have died in Afghanistan. Several years ago I had sent packages to our troops through I was pleased to see that in March, Dave at Blogography had plugged this web site. I was not only glad to see that others were doing their part, but it reaffirmed my commitment as well. Remember folks...even if you don't agree with the conflicts (which I do not), please support the troops. As a former service member, I know what it's like to be away from home. Anything is appreciated.

My thanks go out to all of the folks working so hard at "Anysoldier", Dave at Blogography, and most of all... all of the women and men in the armed services.

An incredibly worthwhile organization. I try to send out a package every month (when I'm not traveling) and the good feeling you get from making a soldier feel a little closer to home never gets old.
