Author Caridad Pineiro is working with the Wounded Warriors, please visit her blog at this link.
Kim at the SOS Aloha blog did a nice post about Caridad's efforts at this link. You can also contact Kim about adopting a soldier (or three). (And join me in thanking Kim and her family for their service)

I personally have not had the best of experiences with Operation Paperback but they are a worthy organization that tries to ensure that soldiers receive the reading material that they are requesting.
Soldier's Angels has a wonderful organization that also links those of us at home with the brave soldiers who are serving around the world. There is a minimal fee and a 'vetting' process but they offer many ways to serve, including providing hand-worked blankets, hats and scarves to those in need.

Hi again Volunteers! Our own Andrea has just heard from her husband's unit ... they are deployed to Afghanistan and desperately need twin-sized sheets. They say: "Our guys downrange are in dire need of twin sized sheets! We are looking for new or gently-used sheet sets (any pattern is fine.) We can also accept donations of twin sized mattress protectors, or pillow protectors. Anything you can donate will be appreciated." If you want to help, please email me for the address.
If anyone wants more information about any of the aforementioned, please leave a comment or send me an e-mail at email@example.com.
Have a wonderful weekend!
