Supporting Our Troops: More Than a Bumper Sticker

Well, I've been very, very busy as I noted previously, supporting our troops and it doesn't look like it is going to settle down anytime soon.

If you want to know the schedule and are wondering what you can do to support our troops, check out Kansas City Soldiers' Angels scheduled events and fund raisers.

If you are from the area, we'd love to see you there.

It's more than a bumper sticker. More than words on a blog.

It means something to our men and women. I know, because I get their letters and I get their emails and I have seen their smiles at these events.

I am always trying to thank them, but they always humble me with their gratitude for the simplest things.

God bless them and keep them safe.

Ditto that.

And to anyone reading this who thinks that waving flags and holding signs is all silly and meaningless, I can personally attest that is not the case.

Every Friday I participate in a pro-troops rally outside Walter Reed Army Medical Center in WDC. Every single night a variety of troops come out and say "thank you". Over the past two years I've heard from probably hundreds of troopers, their parents, and spouses. Believe you me it matters to them.

If you can give money, give money. If you can give time, give time.
