    "support our troops" ribbons???

    i see these on almost every vehicle, i want to ask the drivers-how do you support them? by putting a stupid magnet on your car? who DOES NOT support them? i support them by helping with their yard work when they are gone [i have two neighbors serving] my kids sent phone cards.

    It is just another way to show your support, it doesn't matter how you support our troops as long as it is thoughtful and from the heart.

    I also would not call the magnets stupid as 2 of my fraternity brothers are in Iraq and the parents of those troops proudly display magnets on their vehicles. We should not condemn one way or another as long as we all let them know we are behind them 100%.

    Just my thoughts.

    From my understanding, a portion of the sales of the magnetic ribbons goes to the families of the troops. However, there are so many knock-offs now, I'm not sure how true that is anymore. It's the same theory as the "Livestrong" bracelets - if a lot of people contribute just a little each, the total contribution is something worth noticing.

    We put together the Care Packages at church.
    The Troops love them Baby Wipes.
    They use them in place of a shower.

    Special men and woman all of them.
    May God Bless them all and all who aid them.

    I am not sure, is a self blessing illegal?
