Spread the Cheer

Argghhh! and Blackfive have the inside scoop on a military family that could use some Christmas Cheer:

Life's been tough for a Marine Corps family lately, including the loss of a dear family member. Every year for the past three years they have lost a loved one between Thanksgiving and Christmas. This family has been an active support group for Marines for years - inviting troops into their home, participating in Operation Santa and other troop support projects, etc. Many of you who regularly read military blogs and discussion forums are familiar with this family.

We want to protect their privacy, but it's not right that such good people who have given so much to our country should not be feeling the joy and love of the Christmas season. So let's show this family the Christmas spirit! Please send them a Christmas card.

Mail your cards or notes to:

970 W Valley Parkway #223
Escondido, CA 92025

It only takes a moment to grab a Christmas card and write, "Thinking of you and grateful for your service," then drop it in the mail. Please take the time to lift the spirits of a great American family. And bloggers, let's get the word out on this!
