Freedom Isn't Free

If you haven't already, thank a veteran or active duty military personnel, and thank their families, too.

If you'd like to help support military families, here's a great organization.  From Our Hearts makes homemade greeting cards that the troops deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq can send home to their loved ones.  Even kids can get involved, so if you need an idea for a service project for scouts, this is a good one!  For more information, go to their website.

Here is an excerpt of a thank you note from a soldier:
There are no words that can express the gratitude we feel when we receive a shipment of your beautiful cards. The thoughtfulness, love, and care behind each card is so wonderful and brings great joy to those who send and receive one of them.

Have a great weekend!
