Peace Work Supports Our Troops
Today I sent a care package to a friend who is serving in the navy, medical division in the desert. He says that he is being pushed to the limits and that many of the memories he will have he wishes he could forget. Sending him candy, chewing gum and eye drops is emotional and is the same type of act as as when I was standing in the Houston traffic, protesting the war. A helpful article about this is in epic site EPIC site, Education For Peace in Iraq. A military website that has good info about how and what to send: marinemoms.us. But make sure to visit the following site also, to get the view from those marine moms who disagree with the the US-led war: Military Families Speak Out.
