  •  My son is deploying again :( (9+ / 0-)

    On his first deployment, his unit got a bunch of the packages we put together at NN08 in Austin. It was wonderful being a part of that effort and he said the guys really enjoyed them.  They were on a small base out in the middle of nowhere all by themselves...they didn't have access to much of anything so the gifts from home were really appreciated.

    I've got my flat-rate boxes ready to go for this deployment .... it's hard to join in the celebration of "bringing the troops home from Iraq" when my son is just heading over ... I hope we won't forget the troops that are being left exposed to "monitor" whatever they are supposed to be monitoring over there. It's going to be a long year.
