Health Care and our Military

As we look toward the Christmas Holiday, let's not forget the troops around the world in the American military. Considering the fact that today is Pearl Harbor Day, we can be thankful for our freedom because of the sacrifices made by those brave men and women in harm's way and who continue today with our current armed forces--some giving even the ultimate sacrifice to defend the U.S. from enemies both foreign and domestic. Health care is a bigger concept than just going to the doctor for a checkup. It extends beyond the physical to both the spiritual and mental health that each individual must keep in balance in order to have a healthy life. If any one of our capabilities get out of whack, we are like a 3-legged stool that has had one of those legs removed. Life then becomes more difficult, and our overall health is affected.

This post is a short one to propose the following: This a small way to say THANKS to some of the folks in the service that are unable to be with their families and friends this holiday season. (This does not require any of your personal information.)

Something cool that Xerox is doing . If you go to this web site, http://www.letssaythanks.com/ you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services.

How amazing it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! This is a great site. Please send a card. It is FREE and it only takes a second. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our guys and gals over there need to know we are behind them!

Our military needs to know we are concerned about their health and well-being. Let's show it.
