As everybody must know by now, we lost eight US soldiers this last weekend in a fierce fight in Nuristan, Afghanistan. You can find the BBC report on that here. Not only are eight families now Gold Star Families, and I will have more on them later, I promise, but 56 soldiers also lost all their belongings.
Needless to say, there are many military supporters who are now collecting donations to replace the tangible items for these heroes. I am sure Soldiers' Angels is already on the job. (www.soldiersangels.org)
Tankerbabe is also spearheading a donations drive. PLEASE go over to her site, and see what you can do to help. You can find her - and the list of needed items - here at From Cow Pastures to Kosovo.
Let's get 'er done here, folks. Thank you.
