Light blogging this week, sorry about that. (and, par for the course...LATE on posting this today, lol :)
Before I get to the usual post of news by and about Soldiers Angels out in the blogosphere, I wanted to tell you about a very cool award contest that you can vote in.
Microsoft and the USO are sponsoring the first annual "Above and Beyond Awards" , which is...."recognizing the contributions of the military community - the friends, family, and other individuals who help brighten the lives of U.S. troops throughout the world "
Not only is the 'Head Angel', Patti Patton-Bader, one of the nominee's....but it turns out that one of my good online friends, Paulette Nelson, is Also one of the nominee's!
Patti is up for the 'Effort' award (as is Marty Van Horn of Anysoldier.com ) and Paulette is nominated in the USO Promotion and Success Award.
I've mentioned Paulette's blog before, if you've never checked it out, stop by and take a look Click here: Yahoo! 360° - My Rambling Mind
Altogether, there are 14 stellar troop supporters nominated for awards in several categories. To check out their stories, and to vote, here's the link:
Please go vote! (and I think you know some of the votes I cast,LOL! )
And now, to this week's Soldiers Angels web surf.
While the Soldiers Angels Network blog and the inestimable Shelle Michaels usually post most of the news stories I've come across about Soldiers Angels, this is one news article I didn't see posted on that blog, and it's a good one
