Taking care of Business

On Friday I posted about supporting our wounded servicemembers by sending cards and letters (scroll down). Just as important is our support for the men and women in the sandboxes, who are going to be spending this Christmas away from their families and the comforts of home (again, in some cases). I've been sending packages to some great folks, and even gained a Blogson out of it (*grin*), but this request is too important to pass up.

The Armorer asked us all to dig just a tiny bit deeper for a special case raised by Deb at Turns out there are some units far from home who are going to have a very empty Christmas, and Deb is working hard to change that. Her Operation Santa is going to try to get some stockings over to them ASAP, and needs our help.

If you can spare a few dollars to help her fill and ship these stockings, it would be most appreciated. Please go read her post, and donate a little to help her be Santa's elf to the troops, won't you? (From her main page, the PayPal button is on the right)

Putting my money where my blog is, I've sent along my donation ...
