I wonder if maybe thinking out of the box, would make a few soldiers happy.
Do you think even the male soldiers would enjoy a fuzzy 'cuddle buddy'?

Is it possible to send boxes to hospitals without using a specific soldier's name?
Zonny, thatís a really nice idea and I think you may be on to something. But you may not want to have them sent here, but instead to places like Walter Reed, Rammstein, Trippler. The reason I say that is injured soldiers donít stay here. They get medevaced back as soon as possible most of the time. Iím an exception because the Army had the bright idea to try rehabbing a few ďKeyboard RangerĒ types in the field. Iíve been told they only tried a few gave up on the idea and guess who is a big part of it being declared a failure.

So the people that have to spend any length of time in the hospital will be out of here. I donít know if the stateside hospitals have stuffed critters available. Maybe deadday will fill in that block.

Yes, I think both men and women will enjoy them and it is possible to address a box to ďAny SoldierĒ. Just make sure the contents of the box are clearly marked so it isnít given to someone who would rather have that box of pogey bait.

I will say that having my kitty to cuddle especially when I wake crying from a nightmare or just get really down does seem to help. It's hard to explain why, but deadday was right.

Whatever works, LW. I hope you get to come home soon, and will keep praying for you and your full recovery.

Meanwhile you've got Mandy and the Caterday thread. I'm a dog man myself, but I still enjoy the thread.

You've also got Silient Runner, B., Zonnie and the rest of us here.

Hawk

PS I haven't forgotten the Blizzard I owe you. Your last one was Girl Scout Thin Mint, and you enjoyed it very much (in absentia, of course!)

September 11, 2001

I just came back from a memorial service for the victims on the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This is my first September 11th spent overseas and I had a lot going through my mind as I sat and watch the picture slideshows, listened to the chaplains and the speakers. Iím still sitting here with tears in my eyes over the lives and sense of innocence we lost that day. Iíll never forget standing there with a group of my co-workers watching the towers burn on TV. I turned to a man Iíd seen but never spoken to and said ďThis changes everythingĒ. He thought about that and said ďIt scares me to think youíre rightĒ. I never forgot or forgave what was done to us that day and that is the main reason I decided to re-enlist in í06, 20 years after completing a single enlistment.

I deployed last year and got to Afghanistan late last year and was only there for a month before getting shot. After I got out of the hospital I came over here to Iraq where Iíve been since March. With all that Iíve had on my plate trying to recover and get past whatís happened I haven't thought of what happened September 11th very often since I got here. Todayís service kind of put a few things back into perspective. Iíll be thinking about it for a while and may post more later.

One thing I did think about is just how close I came recently to letting those Afghani bastards beat me. I think about what theyíve already done to all of us and I realize I canít give them any more victories that they already have. No matter what happens I canít let them beat me. It doesnít matter whether I want to or not, it just would be wrong for any od us to give in to those bastards.

I have more confidence in you now more than ever. You are sounding stronger and I hope that continues. Your going to beat this thing yet, one day at a time. Like they say, hang in there baby!

If that's not inspirational, I'm not sure what is.

Right now I'm drawing a lot of my strength from you folks here. And today I'm especially angry at those Aghani **** stains. Not just for what they did to me and the others on my convoy, but what they did to out country. Maybe that part will last and maybe it won't.

But I do believe I can continue to get my strength from you people here and that just has to be enough. I have to find a way for it to be enough. I don't expect it to be easy.

Reading this thread about Lone_Wolfe and all of the supporting posts has made me feel less worried about this country. There are so many good folks who care about our country we can get thru anything, even this rough patch we are in.

Best wishes for a complete & speedy recovery and safe times ahead L_W! Thank you for serving.

Thank you Brown Hawk. I appreciate those prayers and have come to understand that Iíll need then for a while. The road back is much longer than I hoped it would be, but I feel like Iím finally beginning the journey. Or at least putting my boots on to start.

You and all the others here are my rock right now. And Silent Runner, sheís a RL friend and she told me if I dare come home in a box sheíll revive me just so she can kill me herself.

I havenít forgotten that Blizzard either. Thin Mint, eh? Hmmmmmm, wouldnít have thought of that flavor but it sure does sound good. Iíll bet I enjoyed it! Almost as much as Iíll enjoy the next one!
