As I mentioned yesterday, I wanted to support members of the military with a note of appreciation. Once I learned the personnel on my list would be willing to distribute more letters, I thought I'd extend the invitation to Fools.Anyone interested in sending a card, letter or care package to a member of the military (selected at random), please send the item(s) to me at:Military PrideP.O. Box 53965Houston, TX 77052 - 3965If you have any preferences (ex. someone in the army from CA), please note that on the outside of the envelope. Just be aware you may not get an exact match and could end up getting a thank you note from Ensign Pulver of FT. Meyers, FL. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *For those wanting to send more than a note, here are some suggestions from Operation Military Pride for care packages:Batteries (AA, D Cell) Tapes/Cd's Stamps Paper and Envelopes Pre-paid phone cards Playing Cards Magazines (New or Used) (No Nudity, please) Books (New or Used) Videos Candy (No chocolates) Travel Games Christmas decorations Pens/Pencils Personal Hygiene Items (Soap, Shampoo, disposable razors, chapstick,toothbrush/paste, etc...)

I've secured the mail box for at least 6 months.Thanks for the encouragement and the willingness to participate!Even if you don't feel the urge to participate right now, as you celebrate the 4th of July next week, please keep this project in mind. I'll be sending out packages as long as I have things to send. So if you watch fireworks and get a lump in your throat, take a minute and write a few lines. Send it to me and I'll take care of the rest.RC
