Supporting Troops

I remember a few years ago finding some websites about helping troops by sending them books and stuff. I can't remember any of them now, so does anyone know of any websites for things like that?

Re: Supporting Troops

Hmm, along the "supporting our troops" line, has anyone thought of getting a group together and going to an airport where the Military Air Command flies into? The idea here would be going to the airport as a group, not in costume, and welcoming home our country's returning service men and women. I've seen alot of family based welcoming groups while flying home from Canada over the past few months. The military personnel are extremely happy to be welcomed home, even if by strangers. Just a thought to lend our support to our real world men and women in uniform.

Re: Supporting Troops

On the way to some of my flights I've seen TONS of people standing and greeting troops. (Esp. in ATL and here in CLT) Again, USO.org is a great resource, and you may be able to meet up with some USO folks in your airport, and get even closer than you would be able to by yourself.

Re: Supporting Troops

We could do like the Starfleet did at SL. That was have people write postcards and send them over seas. I am sure we can contact people to help us do that. I have where someone sets up a page on the web where people can leave commits for the troops.

Both of those are really good ideas.

Re: Supporting Troops

Another way to support the troops is to get involved with the Overseas Coupon Program (OCP). It's handled by STARFLEET but anyone, any organization, can participate.

Basically, you send food and non-food coupons overseas, after choosing a base to donate to, and the servicemen, servicewomen and their families can take advantage of the manufacturers coupons. The coupons for overseas folks are good up to six months AFTER they've expired!!

My STARFLEET chapter has been a part of the program for almost a year now and we've donated over $34000 in coupons to date :D . I intend to get SG-2 involved in the program as well.

Here is the website in case you are interested:

http://www.ocpnet.org/

Give it a try. It's such a worthwhile cause and it's no trouble at all to get involved in.
