I came across This blog post There are angels,and then there are Soldiers Angels by a blogging writer,Elen, who mentions Another writer, JoAnn Ross….who came across Soldiers Angels while doing research for a book, and JoAnn blogged about that here.
So, Joann became a Soldiers Angel, and then Elen saw her blog post and adopted a soldier,too!! Yay!!

Lastly, at This link Golden Dragons:For the Soldiers and Families of the 1rst Battalion,14th Infantry Regiment Fighting in Iraq I came across A Note from LTC Boccardi
and the pertinent part of his note regarding Soldiers Angels said:
“I am astonished by a group called “Soldiers Angels.” This organization is unbelievable. It’s cared for by great Americans with true character that empathize with our sacrifice. They send me packages and mail that I deliver to our Dragons out on Patrol Bases. It impacts soldiers. I’ve seen them stop what they are doing, sit on their cots and start reading their cards from a complete stranger that simply says – “Thank You” in their own words. It’s because of you and the people of Soldiers’ Angels that we endure the unendurable. I will close with a note from a Soldiers’ Angels Card – “May No Soldier Go Unloved.”
and then saw where Soldiers Angels Germany had already also blogged about it Honoring Those Who Endure the Unendurable
and she has links at the bottom of that post to two very good posts,from Cassandra at Villainous Company,both posts worth checking out.
To end the surf, as always, Life in the Northeast asks us to Remember…
