    I thought maybe a few folks here would find some of these of interest:


    Donate a calling card to help keep servicemembers in touch with their families at Operation Uplink
    http://www.operationuplink.org/

    Send a greeting via e-mail through Operation Dear Abby
    http://anyservicemember.navy.mil/ or
    www.OperationDearAbby.net

    Sign a virtual thank you card at the Defend America Web site
    http://www.defendamerica.mil/nmam.html

    Donate to "Operation USO Care Package"
    http://www.usometrodc.org/care.html

    Support the American Red Cross Armed Forces Emergency Services at http://www.redcross.org/services/afes/

    Make a donation to one of the military relief societies:

    Army Emergency Relief at http://www.aerhq.org/

    Navy/Marine Relief Society at http://www.nmcrs.org/

    Air Force Aid Society at http://www.afas.org/

    Cool links!

    Also, if you live near a major airport most of them have a servicemens center which is run by the USO where soldiers can stop in for a sandwich and a drink. Many of them also have pool tables, books and beds for those long layovers.

    These places are great. I would always head straight for the servicemens center whenever I had a layover when I was in the Army. Everything is provided free of charge and is run by volunteers.

    This would be a great chance to help out a soldier!
