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 www.soldiersangels.org. 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.

Bill Gossett
