To the editor:
Thank you for posting the names of our men
and ladies who are serving our country. (See
list.) A nice service to
and for them.
Another "cause," which I would like to mention, is the fact that
that we can send our troops "cooling scarves" to help them bear what
really must be an unbearable heat over in Iraq. None of us
can fathom what it must be like to be dressed in full battle gear in
130 or 140 degrees.
There is apparently a special material, which holds water over a
long period of time and when made into scarves. We can purchase a
scarf for our troops for $14 per scarf and can send this money to
Soldiers' Angels, National Communications Center, Box 9015, Pueblo,
CO 81008, Attn: Patti Patton Bader. Ms. Patton Bader happens to be
the grand-niece of Gen. George S. Patton.
[to top of second column in this letter]
I am sending some $238 -- mostly from Lincoln Rotarians -- and
urge your readers to let our ladies and men in uniform know that
Lincoln, Ill., appreciates their service.
I urge your readers to read all this info on
It will not take much of your time, and you will feel great about
what you might be able to do to show our appreciation.
