Giving Support Where Support Is Needed

Credit where credit is due.

The Marine Corp allocated an additional $30 million to some bases for family readiness programs. That includes support groups, and counseling. Considering that many soldiers are rotating from US bases to Iraq in wahat they call "seven and seven" (meaning seven months here, seven months there) such extra support is not only fitting but necessary. According to the LA Times, many Marine families have endured two, three, even four rounds of duty in Iraq. Please see the element at the bottom of this blog to learn some of the small ways you might contribute to the support of our soldiers.

If any blog vistitors would like to research the article in the Times, it is by Tony Perry. It appeared Thursday, Jan 10, page B3.

Carolyn Howard-Johnson wrote the foreword for Eric Dinyer's book of patriotic quotations, Support Our Troops, published by Andrews McMeel. Part of the proceeds for the book benefit Fisher House. Her chapbook of poetry won the Military Writers Society of America's award of excellence.
