Here's a snippet of that guest post.
Imagine it's hot, sandy with a nice breeze but you're not at the beach AND you are wearing up to 100 pounds of gear! You're an American soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan! Today is pretty much like yesterday except you are one day closer to coming home to your family.
It's the end of the day and your most anticipated activity is a nice shower and mail call. Your hands are weather-beaten, dry and chapped. Yet, there’s hope for your hands thanks to Operation Soldier Care.
Our troops frequently get care packages for birthdays and holidays, but what about “just because” we appreciate them now?
What is Operation Soldier Care? How did it come about?
I’ll start by giving you an inside look of who these soldiers are who will be the recipients of this campaign and why you want to be part of it.
You can read the full story at the Mrs. Lieutenant blog.
