I've started a photo/message journal on my other screenname (eek! I'm running out of ftp space here!) featuring patriotic photographs and messages of support for our troops abroad. Many of the camps are now equiped with internet access and I'd like to create a forum where the service men and women can see the amount of support their countrymen have for them on the homefront.
As many of you already know, my oldest son Gabe is deploying to Iraq at the end of September. I have been keeping a journal of letters to him since he left for basic training in October of 2004. Its scary that he hasn't even been in the Army for a year and he's already being sent to war. Needless to say I'm scared to death but he is doing what he has always wanted to do... he's serving his country just like his father and grandfathers. Gabe is one of my most loyal lurkers, he reads all of my journals although he rarely comments. It is a window to his hometown and he is always peeking in every chance he gets. I plan on continuing the entries to him during his absence because I know that if he has the chance he will be able to visit his homeland, even if its just a brief cyber-visit.
Please feel free to visit the journals and submit any photographs or messages you'd like to share with the brave men and women of the Armed Forces, the sons and daughters America.
