    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Thank you guys so much! I'm sure they will appreciate it, as do I.

    My son didn't appreciate his family before he left. He loved us, but I don't think he really understood how much HE is loved. Until he watched these other young adults being forgotten about. He even said so in a letter he wrote me. I can't believe how quickly he is maturing. I'm so freaking proud of him.
    I hate when the cops throw me in the back of the squad car ....like they didnít hear me call shotgun.

    REF the address for the soldiers in bootcamp. I'm still not sure who's name to put on the card. Do we just leave it blank? Please advise, because I want to send mine out today.

    Yes, just print the address as I typed it. It will go to my son's unit and he will let the ones with nobody know that it's for them.

    I am sending about 5 or so letters with a Holiday greeting for them!

    I sent two cards with notes. They were the first cards I've sent out - I'm going to try to write the few I send to friends and family tonight.

    I posted the address on my Facebook page and got a good response. Several folks will be sending out cards/notes so hopefully there will soon be a blizzard of cards/notes coming their way.
