It is hard to believe it has been a year since we started this project. It seemed only right to focus as much attention as possible on Veterans since that is the reason I decided to run for office. If my only accomplishment is providing volunteers and/or donations to these worthy causes, I consider it an overwhelming success. As we wrap up the year, take a look back at any one of those in which you may feel moved by and give a little. This is the time of year where each becomes infinitely more important than any one thing we do alone.

Let's Say ThanksWe encourage participation in this or one of their partner sites. It gives you the opportunity to fill out a card and send it to a soldier that may not otherwise receive mail from anyone. While we work hard to bring an end to their current deployment, consider telling them you think of them every day. Cards are designs submitted by children, many of whom have parents currently deployed.Let's Say Thanks via their site or with a care package through a partner organization.
Thank you so much to the community. We blogged here before I was a candidate and we will blog here afterwards. While I will likely transition back to rgrdave, I hope you stick around. We enjoyed meeting so many of you at YK and hope everyone will join us at YK2 as well. Come by our site when you have time and register...we are redecorating now and will be up and out full force once that is complete. We aren't done, are you?
Oh yeah! One more thing:
