  •  Hey TBM (4.00)
    Mikey brings up an interesting idea of helping family back home as well.  Many are left with a significant loss of income while having alot on their minds caring about loved ones.
    •  A lot of what the families need can be described (4.00)
      as TIME.  They need to get the lawn mowed, and get the oil changed on the car.  They need to get the whole family to a movie so mom can have a night off.  Gift certificates to movie theatres or restaurants, or oil-change places, and other such things can be very appreciated.
      Perhaps the best point of contact for this kind of thing would be installation chaplain's offices on active-duty bases, or State Chaplain's offices for the national guard, or Major Command chaplain's offices for the reserve forces.  The chaplains liase with the Family Support Groups.

        •  I think that's great! koswecare.com (none)
          Koswecare.com as an adjunct to dailykos.com.

          Democrats don't care? Hate the troops? Hate America? Let's show them otherwise! We could sell koswecare.com bumper stickers to generate funds for big purchases like Kevlar vests and to encourgage others to visit the site and find out what we're up to, spur them to get involved--something like these at anysoldier.com, perhaps (scroll halfway down). The bumper sticker text reads "Want to send your support to a soldier in harm's way but have no idea what to send or where?" plus of course the URL.

          Well, just a thought. It would be a formidable task, maybe more than we (or Kos) would want to take on. I'd sign up to volunteer.

          Is nothing secular?

          •  Blush... (none)
            thanks (I never get good ratings, maybe I should go into advertising?).  Anyway it is a big project-- I'd do stuff--but I'm not skilled enough to get it running.
