I donated to one of Soliders Angels about 3 years ago. I just gotten some money and felt bad that when my brother was in Marine Corps i didn't send care packages ect.

I  sent stuff to adobted Solider in Iraq, and sent some more stuff to his unit. But I never heard from him or his unit. i kina wished i could have sent it to my brothers friend in Iraq about two years later. 

I also listened to a glen Beck special (he was on CNN at that time) about a hospital in Iraq and contacted the Organitation again and ask if they had someone there, they did and told me to send it to thier lady thier. I put a care package together with candy, toys and coloring books, dvd player, some tv shows to dvd of local programing and mailed it.  I mailed it and and sent a card and stamped so i could get a reply if got it. 

To this day i haven't got a e-mail, note or mail saying they got it.

I don't know if any care paks made someone happy or cheer someone up. Or if a kid

got to use the cars i sent or play with chauk ect. 

Now the fundsare gone, I am working a part time job now and thinking about money i donated and wonder about things and these donations.I  went through all money so can't help anyone out so please don't ask, things seem to tight.

I been debating posting this  article also.

I question wheather i was stupid in doing these things. I don't requet it.

I wish i could say, I had a penpal from Iraq that got these and said it was useful or enjoyful something but nothing came from it.

I meet this man out side McDonalds and he was homeless and vet. I baught him

dinner and gave him a few bucks and i felt better for that action then some of the above actions friend had given me some money so i had a few bucks at time..

I was fustrated about this when i did the support the troops podcast  so i that why decided to pull it and recreate.it. It should be up shortly.

I do think if you run into a Vet you could ask where they were, if they want they tell you if not just tell them thanks for thier service and have a great day. 

 

 

 

Veterans Day

in United States

 Please make sure if you see a Vet to thank them for thier service to country.

Also inquire where they served and what they did..

I personaly appricate all Service the Verterans have done for country..

My dad, uncles and brother are veterans and i am proud of them.

Have a great day
