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...

A Family in Need of some TLC

You probably have read about the Jones family in Kokomo, Ind. whose house was vandalized last week, 3 days after learning that their son and 3 other soldiers was killed in action in Baghdad. Not only was the vandalism more than despicable, but that Phelps fellow from Kansas has decided to attend the area to protest near the funeral. Veterans groups such as The Patriot Guard and American Legion Riders, as well as other Vets are planning to be there to pay their respects and offer support to the family.

CJ over at A Soldier's Perspective is asking for help in a letter writing campaign to the family of Sgt. Rickey Jones ~

"If you own a blog, please post this effort on your respective blogs and ask your readers to post it on their blogs. If you are as disgusted as I am and would like to write a letter to have delivered to this family, please email Lauren ( for more information. The good people over at Operation Military Pride are helping facilitate the delivery of these letters."

Let's turn the balance of the bad to the good. Our Military leaves no one behind; neither should we.
