Gift Tip for Soldiers in the Desert

Here's something that goes beyond homemade cookies that will probably crumble into dust before they arrive in Iraq (or Afghanistan) anyway!

My grandson just told me that tooling around the bases in vehicles in Iraq is a minor kind of hell because of the heat. He wanted one of those fold-up reflectors we use in the warm climes in the US--the kind you put behind your front windshields to keep the sun's rays from heating up the inside of the car and cracking your dashboard. Last I was there, the 99cent store had some.

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.
