    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.

    Good idea, but the best way to support our troops is to bring them home.

    Seeing as how that won't happen anytime soon and military personal don't get a choice on where they are deployed we have an obligation to support them. With out the military like it or not we wouldn't be a free nation. That doesn't mean that you always have to agree with the military position, it's about the people that serve and sacrifice so that we do stay a free nation. I feel that we here at home should show are support to the men and women deployed. If we have a difference of opinion as to the direction of the country than we should take are frustrations out at the ballot box! And it is time to clean the government house out!!! TERM LIMITS FOR ALL.

    Aww James that's awesome, and it definitely helps out a lot. I remember when I'd get stuff from people I didn't even know when I was overseas it was definitely without a doubt an awesome thing.

    That's great and I respect your opinion and, but the purpose of the post was do something nice for the men and women deployed not to debate the politics of the deployment. I'm sure that there are people deployed that feel that way. However at this time we can't change the deployment but we can do something nice for are fellow man. And maybe something for an injured vet that their life will never be the same. War is never a nice thing so please don't think that I take that lightly. All one has to do is see a 24 year old kid that come home with disfiguring injuries and know what a sacrifice these soldiers have made.
    Thanks for reading

    This is an amazing post, the best I've seen.

    I do not support these two wars, but I will always support the men that have heeded the call of their Commander and Chief.

    Thanks for this! Very cool!
