*Stockings for Troops* Nov. 25th, 2006 @ 02:59 am
Hello everyone,
My cousin, Cpl. Kelly Williams, just got back from Iraq with the Marines, but her husband and a bunch of close friends are still out there. For Christmas, my cousin Emily and I are making stockings for the 22 members of her platoon.
Here are some of the things we plan to include:
* Cookies
* Candy
* Hand-painted miniature picture frames
* Books and puzzles (Sudoku, Mad Libs, joke books, word searches, etc)
* Stationery and supplies to write home
* Individualized letters from 3rd graders
* Sanitary products
* And a bunch of other miscellaneous toys and games to help pass the time
* Holiday movies, such as The Santa Clause, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Christmas Story, etc.

However, it has taken much more money than we anticipated and my funds are just about out. I really don't want to abandon the idea, so I am hoping that anyone who reads this may have a few extra dollars. It doesn't have to be much, but anything, even $1, would help!

If you can't, I completely understand. But if you can spare a little extra let me know!
You can e-mail me at nennerfree@aol.com with any questions.
I also have a Paypal account set up if you would prefer to do it that way. I think all you need is my e-mail address, which again, is nennerfree@aol.com

Thank you in advance to any who can help!

I have a question and I am having a hard time finding the answer. I hope you don’t mind my asking here. I am doing some homework and really was hoping to have the right answer.

Are women required to serve in all areas of the military or perform all duties? I know that they are allowed to serve in all areas but I was not sure if it was a requirement as it is for men.

Thank you in advance.

Hi, my name is John and I'm a student at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. I'm currently trying to put together a project concerning the effects of war on society and the individual. A large part of my project is going to be collecting narratives, recollections, personal experiences, and opinions from people whose lives have been directly influenced by war in some way, whether it be through serving in the military, through experiences with the service of a family member or friend, or through some level of involvement as a civilian.

I have prepared a short series of questions for the purpose of gathering this information over online communities. If anyone could take the time to post a comment or e-mail me at marlfox0415@yahoo.com with their answers to any of these questions (or anything else you would be willing to share), it would be greatly appreciated. Although I can provide no direct compensation, I hope some of you will be willing to share your experiences. Thank you very much for your time.
