This blog may be considered my blog because I am the author but the reality is this blog has remained on line due to literally hundreds of great American citizens and military personnel & their families.  I may write the posts but I do so only because of 1) what our brave warriors do, 2) the hundreds of people who come together as a team to support our deployed, the wounded and our military families and 3) to honor and ALWAYS remember those who have given their lives for our nation.

I've never considered this "my" blog but "ours".  The other finalists are some great ladies and some stiff comptetition.  If you are so inclined please

You can only vote once.

After you have voted for U S Military Supporter you can refresh your page and vote in one of the other categories.  I have some very dear and special friends in several of the other categories so please take the time to check those out as well.

I am thankful to be a part of the Milblog (Military bloggers) community but even more thankful for all of the amazing friends I have met through troop support and for the legions of great Americans who continue to step forward to join in as a team to support our deployed and wounded.

Together we have done so much to make a difference.  Here are a few links to remind all of you what you have done that I have been allowed to share through this blog:

173rd, 2-503 OEF VIII A recap of huge amounts of support from so many, Carhartt's donation of 5000 pairs of wool hiking socks and 750 pairs of thermal underwear, Operation Love Boxes For Our Troops sends a TON of care packages, E A Harrold Elementary School Valentine's Day card and hot cocoa project, Lakeland Elementary school sends over $6000 worth of socks, Bolton, MA Brownie Scouts send over 1000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies, Rolling Thunder MS Chap #2 and First Tennessee Bank send cards and cocoa

AT&T Pioneer and Delta Airlines send cards to troops in Afghanistan

The links above are just a snipet of the support so many have come together to accomplish and I have had the privilege to be a part of. 

So...go vote.  Share this with others so they can vote.  Regardless of whether this blog is the "winner" of the 4th Annual Milbloggie award you are all winners every day.
