Good-Bye Little Blog~AOL Journals Shutting Down

Well, I was saddened to read today that AOL Journals will be closing down on Oct.31,2008.

Since I had a suspicion this might be coming? I had already started a Blogger blog, where I've been cross-posting.

You can find me on Blogger at this link

Mail Call! Supporting the Troops

I started this little blog on AOL in March of 2006. I learned a lot about blogging using AOL Journals, and I'm sad to see AOL decide that they wanted to get rid of this particular product .

I won't be posting here anymore, I'll leave this post up so that you can follow me to my new 'home', just remember the link is here

Mail Call! Supporting the Troops

Hope to see you there!

Yeoman 3rd Class Margret Ueberlauer hands out toys to HIV infected children during a community relations project at the Camillian Center in Pattaya, Thailand. The USS Abraham Lincoln Strike Group is on a scheduled deployment in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
