Support Our Troops with a Cup O’ Joe!

This is a great program put on by Green Beans Coffee. It only takes $2, and it will bring a smile to a soldier (and a cup of coffee to their hand!) stationed overseas. It’s easy to do and a great way to support our troops that won’t be home for fireworks – and if they do see fireworks, they’re likely to not be the good kind! Send a Cup Of Joe now!

Fly Delta? No Thanks!

I don’t think I’ll be flying a Delta flight when I travel. Delta has issued an apology, but it sounds like typical corporate-speak. If the soldiers’ travel orders dictate 4 bags, it shouldn’t matter which class of ticket they have – and I’m sure Delta isn’t in the habit of upgrading soldiers to first class, anyway…
