You Betcha I'm a Proud Army Mom

Ramblings of an Army mom and probably some rants about the world at large. These are my ramblings and rants and no one else's. Just so you know...

Just a Reminder...

TJ over at Basic Training is still collecting school supplies for the elementary school children in Abu Ghraib. This is an ongoing project and the supplies will be handed out as long as they come in. He asks for the following:

Pre-package each set in some sort of bag if you can:
12 colored pencils
1 pencil sharpener
1 plastic zipper pocket
12 #2 pencils
1 safety scissors
1 composition book (~150 pages)
1 package loose leaf paper (~150 pages)
4 pocket folders
1 ruler, 12 inch/30 cm
1 eraser
assorted stuffed toys or similar (small)
Also any kind of warm clothes, coats, shoes, etc. will be accepted. (It's pretty darn cold over there right now)

Send to:

SPC Buttrick, Thomas
B CO, 1 BSTB (MSG), 1/10 MTN
APOAE 09376
ATTN: elementary school collection

Le's get the word out. The kids are so happy to be going to school but it's hard to do school work without pencils and paper, etc.

TJ thanks you in advance for anything you can send.

(Yup! there go our soldiers terrorizing kids again....)
