Holiday packages for the troops
As many people are already aware, there are countless organizations set up to help show our support to the brave men and women in the US military. These organizations send care packages, books, clothing, and many other items to the troops to help them feel more comfortable as they continue to fight for our country. Sending a small (or large) care package to the soldiers is easy, and it's really the least we can do (especially those that voted for "President" Bush and support the lie of the century) to show our gratitude and thanks to these brave souls.
The Daily Kos community has pulled together and sent over 50 care packages to FOB Falcon's aid station, an Army medical unit. The Democratic blogosphere was happy to help, and I am sure that we will do more of the same in the future. 50 packages may seem like a small amount to some, but keep in mind that this incredible feat was accomplished through three simple requests (in diary form) in a little over 4 weeks. All who participated deserve a note of thanks.
