I had a Veterans Day post all set to go up automatically and obviously I have not mastered the 21st Century technology yet. In compensation I offer some info on how you can show your thanks to deployed vets this season…
One of my old Kilo Company Marines , Bryan Morris, is now a student at Purdue University. He is organizing a fund raiser in support of Operation Bedding in an effort to improve the quality of life for troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. You can check out what he doing here. I recall my first deployment with Kilo we received a bunch of super hero sheets and blankets from the mother of LCpl Conboy, a Marine who had fallen the previous deployment. I even managed to snag me a Superman pillow case out of that. You have no idea how comforting it can be to have clean sheets to come back to after a patrol.
So go check it out!
