Got Books?

Active duty soldiers recovering from wounds received in Iraq are bereft of reading material.

You can imagine the books one might find in a hospital in Germany. Many authors, including Robert Ferrigno and T. Jefferson Parker have sent boxes of books over and you can to - hardcover, arc's, paperback, etc. If you've got it, they'll read it.

This program was put together by Mary Ann Phillips, the mother of a wounded soldier.

Send books on to:
21st TSC, Medical Transient Detachment
ATTN: Soldiers' Angels, Mary Ann Phillips
UNIT 23203
APO AE 09263

Anything sent to an APO address gets shipped regular mail; thusly the mailing expense is not cost prohibitive. That's a big word for me in my current state of mind. I've really impressed myself.

Thanks, Jennifer, for posting this. Do you mind if I pick it up over at The Planet?

That would be more than welcome, Mr Noir.

Hi Jennifer, this is MaryAnn with Soldiers' Angels in Germany.

Thanks for posting this!

However, I'm not the Mom of a wounded Soldier - I am just one of many thousands of Soldiers' Angels who support our military www.soldiersangels.org

Robert Ferrigno contacted me through the milblogger Greyhawk at The Mudville Gazette www.mudvillegazette.com and that's how this all got started.

Thanks again for your support.
