Mature man in foam ready to shave his face and headOctober 27, 2009 16,800 samplers of men's facial products is shipping out to  Marine combat units in Afghanistan, thanks to SupportOurTroops.Org and Crabtree & Evelyn. The troops really need to hear we are still with them, especially those in Afghanistan who need to hear from us the most right now.  They are far, and we need to show them they are not forgotten during times of uncertainty. Each sampler contains 1 Naturals Men's Face Scrub mix, 1 Natural Men's Shave mix, and 1 Naturals Men's shave cream.  Extras the troops are eager to get. It is destined for field hospital and commissary-gift type huts soldiers reach first when they fall back from the front lines. Who did this? SupportOurTroops.org, and its cooperating partner Crabtree & Evelyn teamed up to pull this off. On behalf of America's troops and the families, SupportOurTroops.Org thanks Crabtree & Evelyn for making this possible. Does your company have anything we could send to the troops? Would your chain store run one of our programs to collect goods for the troops and their families or help us raise money? Isn't it time to show them how much your company cares?

Army Staff Sgt. Robert J. Miller, who was 24 years old when he died, will receive the Medal of Honor posthumously for heroic actions in Barikowt, Afghanistan, on Jan. 25, 2008."He displayed immeasurable courage and uncommon valor --eventually sacrificing his own life to save the lives of his teammates and 15 Afghanistan National Army soldiers," White House officials said in a written statement issued today announcing the honor. Miller's parents, Phil and Maureen Miller, will join the president at the ceremony, the statement said. Miller was born on Oct. 14, 1983, in Harrisburg, Pa., and graduated from Wheaton North High School in Wheaton, Ill.

Joined in businessMay 16, 2009 -  Today is Armed Forces Day, and I have a question for you. A friend or neighbor leaves his family to go off and protect your family.  Morally what you should do for him, for her? Over 90% of us have never served in the military.    I am one of them, representative of the rest.  And on behalf of all of those our troops protect,  I am here to thank the troops for all they do. The load which the troops and their families carry is our load. Your load.  This writer's load.  Our kids.  They carry it for us.  For you. For me.  For them. The time is right to stand for those who stand for all of us. To carry the load together with them. To  publicly stand up for them.  To thank them. So who are you? What are you made of? What do others think? Well, our time has come.  Our time is now.  Your time is now.   The time is incumbent to form a new relationship with our fellows who serve in the military to protect us and our families.  Your family.  My family.  All our families. These folks go half way around the world to many different places to look out for our liberties, livelihoods, and businesses, -- and have families at home while they do. And in return we citizens and our great American companies need to look out for them and theirs. Time is precious to the troops and their families, and every day an eternity. Tomorrow is not always soon enough, and time is always of the essence in doing all we can for them. The time is now to do for them that do for us, those who preserve our liberties, livelihoods, and businesses.
