Went to volunteer today for the troops

The place is called "Operation Gratitude" and located at this armory warehouse near my house. Me and the whole family went in to volunteer our time to help show our gratitude and support to the troops by making care packages.

So we went in, and there was this huge group of people working, grabbing boxes and going down this line as more people on the other side of these tables were throwing in supplies we were going to mail out.

The troops got sun block, shampoo, socks, magazines, bandanas, CD's, DVD's, shirts, hats, snacks, energy drink mixes, energy bars, 2 400 minute calling cards, soap, and a card stating our support and what we did for them today.

It was awsome seeing so many people there working hard, being so damn patriotic. Everyone was smiling and happy knowing they were doing something for the good of our country.

That is so COOL.

Being the recipient of a box like that does mean alot. I'll never forget my box had a letter from a little kid from someplace too. We enjoyed reading the letters from the kids.

The socks are always welcome.

Re: Went to volunteer today for the troops

I bet, I heard some mothers who were there talking with one another about how they get calls from home saying they'd love some new socks

It was one of those times where you really felt you were doing something. Not some BS phone-a-thon or some **** like that.

Re: Went to volunteer today for the troops

care packages are awesome, I got one and it had a letter from a vietnam vet in there saying how much he appreciated what we do for the USA. I was thinking to myself here is a vietnam vet thanking me for what I am doing but I should be thanking him for what he did before I was even thought of cuz I know they sure didnt get care packages back then or atleast in this magnitude.
