Kat in GA - a Soldiers' Angel

Yep, that email has been around several times and seems to be gaining popularity. I know people who do, in fact, make an effort to wear red on fridays to show their support for y'all. Unfortunately for me, the only thing red I have (a red shirt that says, "Support Our Troops!), I can't wear on fridays because it's not dressy enough for the office. :/

BUT - I ALWAYS wear my Soldiers Angels pin (except today - I had on a little yellow ribbon pin...which fell off somewhere between the bus stop & work...grrr) and a "Hero Bracelet" with the name of one of my adopted Soldiers on it... and my Sgt. Mike Stokely Memorial "dogtag" every day... so I think they should all get the hint, LOL! ;-)

Dear Chaplain CB,
Kat beat me to it. lol. I have been doing this for around a year now. It has been so long I forget when it began. lol.

I'm glad we have a small way to show our appreciation. God bless you, and my prayers are still with you. :)

I have been wearing red on Friday for over a year now, to remember our troops. I have encouraged others to do the same. I would love to see red on everyone every Friday.

I have never received that email, but that is so neat. I'm going to pass it on. I came over from Kat's blog and am linking you to mine. My husband is in Afghanistan and has been in Iraq. I wish you well and will be following your time there.

Why I Write...

  • On 22 November 05 I received orders to report to Ft Shelby, Mississippi. I have been ordered to join the 1st Brigade Combat Team from Minnesota. I will be the chaplain of the 1-125 Field Artillary Unit, which is being re-tasked as a convoy security unit. We will leave for Iraq in the spring of 2006. Here is the story of my journey.
