What's the best way to boost moral?

Providing continued and consistent support to our service members is one of the greatest things we can do as citizens. On Friday, ASY BlogTalkRadio will be interviewing Ida Hägg, Chairman of the Board for Adopt a Platoon.

The organization was started by a group of volunteer mothers to provide continued support to our service members serving abroad. How nice it must feel as a service member to think about members of the community "adopting" you and reminding you of their support for your sacrifices. Another important part of what Adopt a Platoon does, is work to promote patriotism in our schools and communities. The group has a variety of special projects they engage in for holidays and everyday that are really quite unique...from "Operation Crayon" and "Operation Underware"!

Listen in Friday at 2PM as Ida tells us about some of these campaigns, and discusses the most important things we can do as concerned citizens to keep our troops fighting strong. A quick look at the group's website reveals a really good description of suggested items for care packages that might be interesting to anyone looking to help.
