with all the joy going on right now, it's very important for all of us to remember it's still going on... and on... and on.

Once again, you manage to share with us very important news details. Thank you.

It has been a very tough past few weeks for our Soldiers in the Middle East and I hope our Troops know, that in times like these, we stand behind them all the way.

LAW,

I would love to write for the Parent's Zone but I have had a bad case of writer's block lately....in part because everything in our military family has been pretty quiet (we like it that way). If you have some suggestions let me know via e-mail, which you have.

H.L.,

I think the troops know that we stand behind them but sometimes when the mainstream media ignores what they are doing, it's hard.
