A Non-Partisan Plea
At least 33 US troops have been killed so far this month, a fact which the WaPo says “could signal a renewed insurgent offensive.” (Why do journalists always say the violence in Iraq is “renewed”? Has it ever ebbed?)
Now more than ever, our deployed men and women need to know we appreciate their service. Please click on the Any Soldier link in my sidebar and send our troops some coffee, a pair of socks, or even just a letter of encouragement. It’s easy to send stuff—the USPS offers a “flat rate box” that only costs $7.70 to mail, no matter what it weighs.
