I’ve referenced Operation Baking GALS in the past… an Internet organization that helps organize and send baked goodies to troops serving abroad… and told you about how wonderful it is and just how absolutely easy it is to get involved.
But today I want to mention it again in light of an email that was sent to me just the other day about a package of brownies and candy I shipped over to Afghanistan on July 14, 2011 with a “thank you” note to the soldiers. It’s the kind of email that makes you stop and think and remember why you want to spread smiles in the world. I won’t lie and say that it didn’t make me cry, because it did.
And it’s one that will have me signing up for Round 38 as soon as I’m done writing this entry… maybe you’ll join me now or later as well.

p.s. via a Google search, I can share that “Lt. Marks” has recovered from his injuries and is back in active duty stateside.
