Adopt a Platoon

I have been given a contact and have promised 50 Christmas cards to go to my contact. I'm going to get some cards in the next day or two and then get kids in my classes make the cards up to send to troops overseas. He appears to be in South Baghdad. I think our troops need all the holiday cheer they can get. This is the first time I've adopted a platoon. I have adopted an individual soldier before but never signed up for so many soldiers. But it's just cards so I can do that. It's the least I can do for our defenders of freedom.

I may ask our JROTC at school if they want to participate as well. It might be a good opportunity for them to touch base with real soldiers.

Hope that you and those you love are safe, and warm this chilly night.
