Recently I have adopted a soldier at Soldier’s Angels website. In the early 90’s when we had Operation Desert Storm I adopted a troop. Back then it was easier to send packages as an individual than it is today.

When you adopt a soldier you make a committment to him or her that you will write or send a card once a week and a package (doesn’t have to be big) at least once a month.

Whether or not we agree with the war, our men and women are over there fighting and dying for us so we can have the freedom to do the things we choose to do.  

Many times I have thought about what it would be like to be in Iraq in a time of war. Yes they volunteered to go but it still doesn’t keep them from feeling emotions. Scared and frightened and wondering whether they would make it through their deployment to come back home and see their families and friends. Giving up ALL of the comforts of home. Oh how fortunate we are to go to the store or the mall and have the freedom to choose what we will eat or wear. The freedom to go out to a nice restaurant and dine and dance.  

They have given and sacrificed much. So I am asking you to consider becoming a Soldier’s Angel and adopt someone especially now. The holidays will be approaching us sooner than we think. Yes we all are struggling but we have many sources and friends and family at our fingertips. Imagine being in the desert and only having the men and women in your troop to comfort you or share their packages with you. We all can make a difference!

Thanks and God Bless each of you.

Thanks for making a difference in someone else’s life!
