Sept 11
As we approach the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks…and as we proudly fly our American flags…the September Support Series  should remind us all that in spite of our political differences, we still have heroes in harm's way fighting for our country.


In the previous September Support Series we have mentioned the simple task of flying the American flag. Why, some Marine has to thump you in the chest to get you to fly your flag is beyond me, but if that what it takes, no problem.

The ten year anniversary of the attacks will be a somber event as it is every year. However the “Support” part of the September Support Series also lets you swing this thing up on a positive note. How? Glad you asked.

With the Ten Year anniversary less than a week away, why not spend this short time in supporting our deployed troops?  I have included a simple letter for you if you are “that” busy and can’t write one yourself, you can print out mine, and send it to a deployed warrior. Yes, it would be better if you wrote your own but at least if you are crazy busy you can simply hit “print” and send this off.

Here is what you should do.

-Go HERE  and look to the left. You will see hundreds of names of deployed warriors and their brief situations. Pick one and request their address. Remember that letter you printed out? Once you get their address, simply mail it to them. How easy is that?

If you would like to send a care package, follow the same steps above and send them some good suggestions HERE.  If you don’t think you will have the time to do either, you can still support the troops and make a donation HERE.


You see, the September Support Series is not only about September 11th, your troops but it’s about America!

Make a difference this month by doing some simply things that have big ramifications.

 Time for a CGar!!


Letter to a warrior:


Dear Hero.


Thank you for taking time to be away from your family, things you enjoy and your home in order to protect us here in America.


I know it may seem like you are forgotten but trust me you are not. This September is the ten year anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, an act that was the foundation that required you to go where you are now. It may seem that many Americans have forgotten about the attacks but I hope you know I have not. I wanted to write you this letter to ensure you know we are supporting you and you are in our thoughts & prayers. Be safe, do great things and know we support you!


  1. As always Major, a big thanks for what you do. On this blog and everytime that you lace your boots up. I know that every service member isn’t as lucky as I was all those years ago, to have a support network of family and friends, writting letters and sending goodies. Nothing worse than to be a long way from home, and to think that no one gives a rat’s ass about you. Except Gunny. And you try and stay off of his radar. Semper Fi.

  2. I send care packages to our troops through AnyMarine. They are so appreciative. We are blessed to have such wonderful men and women serving in our military.
