Any Soldier

I have a couple of Featured Blogs this morning I'd like to share with you...

The first is one that affects or should affect everyone here in this good country of ours America.

I'm sure that you often wondered how our son's and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends and relatives are doing over in Iraq and Afghanistan. How ever we feel about the war issues, especially during this election time of year, we have to wonder if there is anything we can do to help our Soldiers.

The website banner reads, " Want to send your support to a Soldier in harm's way, but have no idea of what to send, who to send it to, or how to send it?"

This is the perfect site for just that.

This website (Any Soldier) was started by a "Sergeant Brian Horn from La Plata, Maryland, an Army Infantry Soldier with the 173rd Airborne Brigade was in the Kirkuk area of Iraq when he started the idea of Any Soldier to help care for his soldiers. He agreed to distribute packages that came to him with "Attn: Any Soldier" in the address to the soldiers who were not getting mail.Brian also completed a tour in Afghanistan and is now home, but continues.
Any Soldier Inc. started in August 2003 as a simple family effort to help the soldiers in one Army unit, thus our name. However, due to overwhelming requests, on 1 January 2004 the Any Soldiertm effort was expanded to include any member, of any of the Armed Forces in harms way."

With all the election time politics going on I thought this site would bring the focus back to where it belongs... on our brave troops.
