Good Grief woman! You must be busy ALL the time making cards, sewing, stuffing your boxes, etc!
With the rules of Soldiers Angels, I can't afford to sponsor one soldier for a full year. I'm unemployed, disabled and on a limited income (great combination, huh). However, since I am retired from the U. S. Army, I "have to" support my troops where I can.
I have tons of fabric I have collected over the years and I think I'll check into the sewing group. I don't think I have enough to say to a soldier for weekly letters! Good grief, how interesting can a life for a 59 year old woman be to a young soldier???
