Dear Bos'un, I couldn't get the musical video to work, so I removed it. If you can fix it, please use 450px width and 250px height. :)

Operation: Love from Home

Below is a request from one of our Soldiers' Angels. Come on, folks. Step up to the plate and do your duty. After all, they are doing theirs...
During this holiday season, let's show our troops we love and support them! From September 30 to November 30, I will be collecting holiday cards for troops stationed in high-combat areas in Iraq and Afghanistan. Being away from home and living in harsh conditions during the holiday season is especially difficult ~ they need to know we have not forgotten them. Mail from home helps to keep our troops' morale strong, making a very real difference in their lives.

Send your signed, unsealed holiday cards to:
    Mrs. Kathy Orr
    OPERATION: LOVE FROM HOME
    P.O. Box 1660
    Loganville, Georgia, 30052
The cards can be handmade or store-bought... for that matter, they don't even have to be cards; a hand-written or typed letter is just as wonderful! This is a great opportunity to get your Scout troop, school, church and other civic organizations involved in doing something to show support for our troops.

If you wish to send an email greeting (which will be printed off and mailed along with the holiday cards), please send an email to: LoveFromHome@Gmail.com

**IMPORTANT GUIDELINES: This is not a "dating service" of any type. Please do not send suggestive or otherwise inappropriate cards or materials. Please also refrain from making political statements of any nature. I will be reading and screening every card received to ensure that the above guidelines are adhered to. Remember: This is strictly to let the troops know that we love them, we are proud of them and that we HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN them! If you have any questions, please contact me at LoveFromHome@Gmail.com

Please do what you can to send some holiday cheer to our men & women serving in harm's way this holiday season! :) If you have a blog or website, please consider posting this informtion on your blog or website; if you do not have a blog or website, please forward this on to as many people as you can. My goal this year is to EXCEED last year's total of 2,500 holiday cards. Thank you all in advance for your participation and support for our heroes!!! God bless, Kat. PS - I also have a flyer available in Word format, if anyone would like something "pretty and printable" to distribute.
