I stumbled across this on my
daily hourly jaunt through the interwebs. This is a phenomenal idea for a way to support the troops. Let's Bring Em Home is an organization that is going into it's 7th year. What they do is take donations and use the funds to purchase plane tickets for junior enlisted personnel and have them home with their families for the holidays. From their website:
We are not for the war in Iraq, nor are we against it. We are not Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Green or Independent. Our motives serve not to change world events, or your perception of them. Our mission is as simple, as it is noble. All we want to do is unite a few military families for the Christmas holiday. That's it. No hidden agendas, no political speeches. We just buy plane tickets for troops. Period.If you travel alot you can even donate your frequent flier miles! If you have a chance check their website out and donate if you are so inclined.
