My daughter's class is making an end of the school year "care package" for some local National Guardsmen who are currently serving overseas. One groups is in charge of images. One group is in charge of purchasing small tokens for each of the guards, and my daughter's group is in charge of gathering stories, poems, anything text in form that can be reproduced for a notebook form booklet of inspiration. When I got home from work, my kid was crying and trying to surf the net. So, we're here together trying to get some quick inspiration from the experts. I told her that if anyone would know where to find it ... you all would. Don't let me down, guys. And Marissa says hello. She said that you need to post some pictures of your kids with guns, too, so the guardmen can see that a new generation of "heroes" is up and coming. :) I love my kid. :)

Always there when I needed you Always there protecting my freedom How could I ever forget you You, who always came through For duty, honor, country I will always remember you How you taught us strength and courage And the will to never fail And that through our every conflict Somehow triumph would prevail You made your peace with history And stand among the brave No more the unsung hero For you our banners wave And I will always remember you For you remembered me Always there when I needed you Always there protecting my freedom How could I ever forget you You, who always came through For duty, honor, country I will always remember you Aviator [img]www.milpubs.com/aviator.gif[/img]

Good stuff! Tell your daughter thank you. I am currently on Title 10 federalization down in Arizona assisting the Arizona HIDTA (Counter-Drug Ops). I was assisting US Customs down on the boarder but they HIDTA needed some help so I volunteered. Anyway at the end of the month I am off to the Dugway Proving Grounds to augment the security forces there. Anyhow I prolly won't go overseas (I am a red leg) but I do know what its like to get care packages from "Home" and I am sure those soldiers will appreciate the thought and care going into that box.
