Tanker Brothers has a great post up about today,May 1, being Silver Star Day, which is:
" a national day set to officially remember and honour all the wounded troops in America, from any war."
You can check out the post here Silver Star Day May 1st.. ,there is a great speech by a mother of a wounded soldier reprinted there.
Since this IS a day to honor our wounded troops? I thought it was a good time to remind people to stop by and check out the CaringBridge pages of some recovering wounded soldiers who have been listed on my sidebar for a long time now....
and maybe leave them an encourging word, to let them know they are NOT forgotten.
Continuing with honoring our wounded troops, I came across a DefenseLink news article about the 2007 Face of America Bike Ride that my daughter and I attended as volunteers for Soldiers Angels this past Sunday
Please check out the article(and I'll have my pics up soon, I hope!)
On another topic, I felt like it was time to mention once again the website for
of which JP of Milblogging.com is a part.
They're getting ready to deploy to Iraq, and I think these guys are going to be the 'bloggiest bunch ever',lol, be sure and check out their blogs!
And it was also on their website that I came across this video, which had me falling out of the chair laughing. (Language warning )
Thanks,guys, for making my day!
(And there's also a place on the website where you can learn how to support these fine Guardsmen )
