    I have been sending packages through anysoldier.com as well.  Whoever organizes Operation dKos should check out the packaging restrictions listed there - there's a list of stuff that you cannot send to Iraq  and Afghanistan, and our own postal service can be very picky about how you package things.

    I believe Michael Moore is still offering copies of his movies to any soldier who asks - maybe we could work with him?

      (or koswecare.com - I perfer that name but whatever):

      I think to do this right we should take a good long look at

      the anysoldier.com any soldier site and model ourselves after

      it. Let's help dailykos soldiers and every other soldier

      too.

      You know, this is such a great idea, I'd love to see a

      balls-out, massive effort on this, every kossack working

      ass-over-teakettle on the project. As an added benefit,

      desperation "bake sales" like these (even if they exceed all

      expectation) always draws attention to and shames

      the powers for not doing their job.

      I don't have the tech skills to take this and run with it, but

      if you do, (any of you), and you're feeling inspired, I

      think if you were to talk to Markos and (with his blessing)

      started conceiving of and building the site [modled on any soldier),

      I just KNOW 99% would leap at the chance to volunteer in

      every other capacity, admin support, resource research,

      content, writing, editing, making calls, etc., etc.

      I won't mince words: I'm in love with this idea because 1) I

      want to provide a tangible means for people (especially

      Democrats) to show their support for our troops (as I

      many of us have been doing, quietly, through

      anysoldier.com) and, as an added benefit, I want some

      good PR for us Dems on the "troops" issue. I am DOG SICK

      of Limbaugh etc. characterizing us as a bunch of commie

      ratfinks who don't give a damn about our service men and

      women. Excuse me, asshole, au contraire. Consider me motivated volunteer

      numero uno. And while we're at it, let me put my money

      where my mouth is: $50 right now to get it rolling, pay for

      webhosting or software or whatever.

      Who wants to match me?

      We can not drop this ball.

      Is nothing secular?
