I came across Christy Hardin Smith’s “Lend a Hand” post from Memorial Day and think it’s worth linking to. Her frustration with the fix we are in with the President’s “damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead” dedication to his failed war plan is combined with some great ideas and experience to support the troops anyway.
I especially like the resources in her post for anyone who wants to help out soldiers and their families with care packages, childcare, volunteer efforts, and the like. AnySoldier is great. I’ve used their program to send needed items to troops in Iraq and I recommend the organization highly.
