After having a safe and comfortable Thanksgiving with the ones I love, I find myself thinking about our uniformed services.   Actually, I think about them daily, and I hope that you do too.  They are not just in the mountains and deserts of the Middle East, but everywhere they need to be to keep us safe. Do not forget that they are our frontlines on the WOT...and in case you have let yourself become complacent about that, you should know that the Madrid bombing has now been linked to 9-11.  This is never just going to go away on its own.

Thank you, every one of you, who are taking care of business for us.

Fallen Marines
Texas Soldier's Funeral
Online Petition supporting Marine in Fallujah
Belmont Club looks at Fallujah,here and here.  Be sure you read the last few paragraphs of the former- but not if you have a weak stomach. We are doing the right thing, make no mistake about that.
A nice "Happy Thanksgiving" piece to look at over at Mudville...and a thought-provoking Thanksgiving message from Greyhawk himself...
Blackfive suggests Pat Tillman for Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year- should there be any question?  Go see what he has to say and go vote-often!
The Paratrooper of Love also had a link to a great Thanksgiving story about our people in Iraq going through much more than the woods to get Thanksgiving to their buddies!

All of this should make you want to do something! Do not just think of our Troops-take action!  'E-mail them , get with the USO, the VFW and anyone else who is doing something for the Troops.  Adopt one soldier or a platoon, but do it now.

Here a just a few to choose from:

Soldier's Angels,
Adopt a Platoon,
Adopt a Sniper,
Adopt Any Soldier,
Operation Gratitude
and the new Department of Defense site, America Supports You.
The Holidays are upon us, and there may be a tiny possibility things could get through before Christmas, but the need will not stop then. Do your part.
