But here are a few tidbits until I return.
A new monument to honor military spouses was announced in Norfolk, VA, this past Monday, July 9th. Check out the video clip here.
“Sew Much Comfort” needs your help. This organization provides “adaptive clothing for the wounded troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.” They are now getting requests from wounded service members to have their uniforms adapted to accommodate injuries or prosthetics. Go to the link and see if you can help. You don’t have to be military to show your support for our military men and women.
