A Success!

Remember when I posted a link and asked you all to go and sign a card the Veterans of Foreign Wars were going to deliver to wounded soldiers?  Well I received this note recently:

Barbara,

VFW Friends of Freedom made the 2006 holidays a little brighter for wounded troops at Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC), Fort Sam Houston, TX.

On December 22, 2006, Mike Espinola, Sr., District 5 Commander, VFW Department of Texas and its Ladies Auxiliary President, Dolly Edwards, presented troops at BAMC a Christmas card signed by over 20,000 caring patriots.

We hope the New Year is off to a great start for you and your family. And we want you to know how important your support of America’s troops and veterans really is. Without your commitment, we couldn’t "be there" for our heroes.

 Thank you for all you do!

We’re so glad we can count on you to keep our country’s troops and veterans in your heart year after year.

  1.   THANK GOD FOR LOYAL AMERICANS WHOM LOVE OUR HOME AND WILLING TO DEFEND IT.
        IT IS NOT EASY TO UNDERSTAND THE THINKING OF PEOPLE BORN AND GREW UP HERE AND SEEM TO BE WILLING AND EVEN ANXIOUS TO GIVE AID AND COMFORT TO AMERICA HATERS BY HURTFUL TALK.
         A GREAT CONCERN IT IS WHEN U.S. CONGRESS PEOPLE SHOW DISRESPECT. FORTUNATELY THERE IS NOT A GREAT NUMBER OF THOSE TYPES.
        SOME SEEM SO ADDICTED TO HATE IT IS UNCONTROLABLE.     sam

  4. That is really nice.  I wish more people would donate to us when I call them.  There is so much opportunity to give of what we Americans have so much of (stuff and more stuff we don't even use) and yet, it is sometimes a struggle to get a donation.  Hugs,
    Lisa
