Well I have been reading the forums for a while and thought I would change things up a bit. I have been supporting a group called Operation ac for a few years, any how since the start of the Iraq war.. The group was founded by a mother of a deployed Army soldier. At the on set they would raise money and get Company's to donate air conditioners in the summer and electric heaters in the winter. That was before they got the shity conex boxes with windows! Well as time past they expanded into having deployed troops put together a wish list of things that they would love to have from home. You can choose an item off the deployed soldier list and through them and they will ship or you can ship. You basically adopt the soldier. I know for a fact that this has mad a difference in peoples lives because I have received many letters from people that I sent things to. They are c3 501 tax certified. Recently I received a letter asking me for donations of course but to even just write a letter or a card to a returning vet as participation has fallen off since the economy went on vacation. Many times the request could be deodorant or boots, ac utilities ect. You can choose the person your adopting by unit, state, male, female or branch of service.Their web site is www.operationac.com So if anyone has an interest in supporting the people that keep us free please check out there web site. Thanks for reading.
