Other Ways You Can Help
http://www.heromiles.org - If you have some frequent flier miles you would love to donate to get a soldier a flight home, but don't have 25,000+ to secure the entire ticket, you can donate them to heromiles. They've worked out arrangements with some major airlines to create a "big pool" of miles to benefit our troops. Ah, the joys of having a Congressman in your corner....
http://www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com - They hope to provide as many soldiers as possible with prepaid calling cards for now, with an ultimate goal of providing banks of cell, satellite, or VOIP communications. They have already distributed calling cards to soldiers in Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.
http://www.helmetstohardhats.org - funded by the Department of Defense to help transitioning military and veterans find careers in the building and constructions trades.
http://www.opgratitude.com - Hundreds of thousands of American troops are stationed or deployed indefinitely in remote parts of the world, including the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, Africa, the Korean Peninsula and on ships throughout international waters. The physical conditions they must endure are difficult and they may be separated from loved ones for long periods of time. OPERATION GRATITUDE, together with the California Army National Guard, 746th QM BN, Van Nuys, seek to lift troops' morale, and bring a smile to their faces by sending Care Packages to service members overseas. OPERATION GRATITUDE Care Packages contain food, toiletries, necessities, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation, all wrapped with good wishes of love and support.
