a list of e-mail addresses for military???

  1. l know there are several members on this board with family in the military that have been/will be deployed. When my son was in the Navy and did his Med run, an e-mail address was provided for his submarine. So, l was wondering if family members wanted to provide e-mail addresses of their military family so that we can write and encourage them during their depolyment. Perhaps keep the thread as a sticky for a while.

    At least we can do something in some small way to help. Any thoughts?

    I found this msn group called Hugs to Kuwait. Looks pretty cool. Contact them though email (see site), and they will locate soldiers in need of support, homemade goodies, etc.

    I am waiting ( not so patiently) to hear from my brother in Turkey. Will check with him regarding unit email. I was reading in Army Times that it is taking some troops longer to get mail.

    Regardless of any doubts about the absolute necessity and/or timing of this war, our troops deserve all the love and support we can give them.

    nursenoelle, thanks for the link. l added it to my favorites list. At first l was going to sign up to adopt a soldier, but after l thought about it, l think l am going to see if our ER would want to do it as a group. l think that would be way cool. We could collect care packages and maybe mail them once a month or so...so many possibilities!...also, l am hoping our allnurse members can provide e-mail addys so we can support each other by helping their loved ones.

    Good idea to get coworkers involved too. They need us.
