Re: Word from Iraq

Ceres: I think this is the first "war" in which I actually don't have a
close relative participating...my grandfather was a WWI vet, my dad a
vet of WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, my two oldest brothers and scores of
cousins all Vietnam Vets, all three of my other brothers served in the
Army with one of them a Gulf War Vet. I think that all along, there has
always been a need for private groups to send donations to
troops...perhaps that is the way it should be...an essential element of
involvement, a spirit of giving to those who are already giving so much
for us...I am quite sure those of us on the list who are old enough to
remember Korea/WWII/Vietnam (anybody want to speak for WWI?) could
probably give better examples. I just remember my dad talking about his
GI kit...it included coffee, cigarettes, postcards/stamps, as well as
items for hygiene. I have one of the full sets of WWII issued postcards
that have these wonderful cartoons of war-time GI life on them...pretty
neat to look at.
