Celebrate the 4th and Help a Soldier

Written by Susan Fitter


My good friend, Rae, just called and suggested having a Fourth of July cookout that supports our troops in Iraq. “How?” I asked, feeling somewhat guilty that we can drink margaritas and play lawn games with our families on Independence Day, while our troops in Iraq are risking life and limb. Always upbeat, Rae chirped, “By having everyone bring a gift that we’ll collect and send torepparttar troops. You know useful things like CDs, books, underwear…”

Underwear? Well, they were called “unmentionables” for a reason; we seem to forget to mention that we need them. It makes sense, especially since undies are made to be fun now – just look at Joe Cool Boxers orrepparttar 143680 Victoria’s Secret catalogue. “Okay, we’re in”, I responded.

Well, unless you have a close family member in a war zone like my friend, Rae, sending gifts can be a problem due to security concerns and anthrax scares.
