Has anyone heard from our adopted soldier Sam? Seems Kelcie has not gotten an email from him in awhile and frankly, i'm concerned. I have a big package to send him so i'm going to email him and confirm his address but i hope someone has heard from him recently. Keep us informed if anyone hears from him. thanks.

I wouldnt worry just yet. If they got sent to do something, they cant tell you that they are going for a while or what they are doing. You wouldnt know until he gets back. Try not to worry.

rod - pm me with your email address and i will give you his email and address if you want to send anything to him and to mail cards, etc. i just don't want to post it flat out due to the rules i agreed to about keeping his identity private but he emails with a couple of the people on here (kelcie, pete, barb, me)

I donated plenty to the casinos. However, Don did well in the bowling tournament.

Last year, for my boss's birthday, we took up a collection and adopted 4 soldiers on his behalf. We had enough money to send boxes to all four soldiers every month for the entire time they were in Iraq/Afghanistan. Some of the boxes weighed 30+ pounds. We went to our local hotels and got them to donate shampoo, soap... you know, all that stuff they leave in all the rooms. Plus we found out the mice and rats were eating through the boxes so we got a popcorn company to donate those huge popcorn tins they use. We put all the edible items in the tin and put that in the box then we loaded the space around the tin with the non-perishables. It worked out great!!

I think it's great that you have a soldier too!!!!
