Wrapping-Up 'Christmas for Our Troops' .....

Through reports on television and in the newspaper, and through posts from bloggers like Wallace at Streams, we've learned - or been reminded - that Midlanders are capable of extraordinary acts of kindness.

Christmas for Our Troops, for example, which delivered nearly 1,300 gift boxes local men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, in the United States Armed Forces.

Here's my post
about assembling the shipping boxes; and here is Wallace's post about filling those boxes with all kinds gifts for our troops.

The best post of all, is this one from Wallace, reporting that the boxes have already made their way overseas and into the hands of our troops ... and what one of the soldiers had to say about it.
