Supporting the Troops
The Indepundit way!
A friend of one of my liberal friends snarked recently about what supporting the troops really means. It IS more than magnetic ribbons.
It's being there for them, however you can. It's a free meal to honor their service and sacrifice (Even at the Italian and Thai embassies!), it's listening to their stories about the war and their recoveries, their hopes and plans for the future. It's honoring not only what they have done, but what they will do.
That not the only way to support them of course. Making sure that the Democrats don't have a chance to cut funding for their mission is also important.
But there are a thousand little ways we each can support the troops. Will you do me a favor? This week, find just one way...one small way to support our servicemen, and do it. It can be a prayer, a card, a small donation to any of the groups that do care packages, visit your VA hospital, the list could go on.
I'm off this morning to sit in a waiting room while my husband has oral surgery and then drive him home and put him to bed. That's how I"m supporting the troops today. Your prayers for an easy surgery and quick, painless recovery would be most appreciated!
