    Good Job dude.  I have sent over 30 different Mixes of music to Iraq already, but money and food and blankets and equipment is so so important. 

    Regardless of how you feel about this war, those troops need to know that we care and haven't forgotten them.

    Yes, bless your heart DJ big_smile

    My daughter was just recently discharged from the army reserves and my new son in law was just deployed. He is an army helicopter pilot. Geez, I've only seen him twice since he and my daughter met. Prayers are great, please send as much love as you can to them all big_smile

    Spread the news about this will you?

    I'll try and I hope more will echo our sentiments.  I'm as anti-war as they get but it SHOULDN'T matter.  These are American citizens who deserve our support.

    Did you check out the internet telethon. Last time I checked, they had raised over 714,000 dollars to send care packages to the troops in Iraq and Afganhistan! smile they were having some technological difficulties, because of overload of people involved, but they kept right on!

    This is such an important boost to the troops over there dealings with such intense situations, heat and putting their life on the line daily...I feel like we can't do enough for them to support them and get them through this.
