How You Can Support The Troops

I got this e-mail yesterday from CQ reader and commenter LoveMyMarine, a Marine Corps wife who works on behalf of her husband and his comrades in arms. She lets us know how we can help support our troops in the field, especially the Marines that just celebrated the Corps' 229th birthday by battling to eliminate the terrorists in Fallujah.

Our six year old started a banner that states simply, "THANK YOU MARINES". We were at the VRE station on Nov 10th (Marine Corps Birthday) and at the Vietnam Wall Nov 11th asking people to sign the banner, which I will be sending to Iraq along with the Christmas Care Packages for 1st Marine Division.

I wonder if I could please ask you to post a link to two other worthwhile grassroots organizations? Wounded Warriors got a plug on Bill O' Reilly, but as I called to remind them, they forgot that the Marines also have fund, started by an Intensive Care nurse and a Marine Spouse. Former Commandant Gen Al Gray and LtGen Newbold (USMC Ret) are now on the Board of Directors. Semper Fi is 100% all volunteer, grass roots, no red tape. Semper Fi was started because of the red tape involved in getting funds for our Devil Dogs through the "established" charities, in many cases, only to be turned down.

Rene was on 60 Minutes (Wed), but all the support we can get & everyone who can help by putting the word out would be most gratefully appreciated.

UPDATE: Here's another way to support the troops: A Million Thanks, a website started by a patriotic 15-year-old girl who wants to get letters and cards of appreciation into the hands of our fighting men and women overseas.
