Blogging for a reason today

Today I am blogging for a reason. Many of you have been over to see Lauren who is stationed in Iraq. Well in her latest post she talks about a Swap Meet that they have over there. They receive items from home and other soldiers come and take what they need. They also send alot of stuff out to the field because those soldiers do not have a PX. Well, Laurens mother posted about it and I want you all to go take a look and see what they can use other there. Perhaps you can even put a link to the list and address in your blogs. And then encourage your readers to send stuff and maybe put a link in their blogs. This is a huge community and I have not met one of you that is not about supportive to our service members serving our country. I know we can make a difference. Laurens mother is dlyn so go check her out. Be sure to link back their blogs and stop by and let Lauren know who supoprt her and all the other soldiers out there.

Also, I wanted to send a shout out to Bre and her mom Tonjia. Bre just found out that she gets to go process for the Navy. This has been a long time coming and you can read the journy at Tonjias blog. Way to Go BRE!!!!

Thanks for the link Michelle - every bit really does help. Units like Lauren's are a great way to get stuff out to the men and women who need it most. Just rememebr to put a note in for Lauren - she wants to acknowledge all the donators on her blog.
