A Special Note:
Support for the Men and
Women of Our Armed Forces and
Peacekeepers Overseas

Here's an E-Mail Group you can join if you'd like to post messages of encouragement and support, virtual greeting cards, or holiday best wishes for our overseas Military Personnel and Peacekeepers:

Military Personnel and Peacekeepers'
Worldwide Holiday Greetings

This Group is in operation throughout the year -- available for your use on every holiday occasion and anytime in-between.

Other web sites providing information about a wide range of services and support for overseas Military Personnel include the following:

The U.S.O. Wish Book
Operation Shoebox
Any Soldier -- and/or -- Any Marine
The Soldier's Family
Give 2 the Troops
Equipped to Survive's Care Package Suggestions

If you utilize any of the above sites, it would be helpful to receive feedback on how well they performed.  Also, if you know of other organizations that offer similar or additional services of high quality, please drop a note to the Facilitator, so they can be recommended for addition to the directory.

The "Peacekeepers' Hometown Fiesta"
Music Station

With the availability of iPods and similar equipment, members of deployed units are likely to have just about as much music of every type that they want.

For those who might enjoy on-line music tracks, however, is cordially invited to visit:

The Peacekeepers' Hometown Fiesta

Please pass the word to anyone else you think might utilize these sites appropriately.  Also, if you're in touch with military service men or women, please be sure they're informed, and encourage them to share the news with their overseas buddies.
