Thanks for Operation Post Card support
We, the Blue Star Mothers, extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in our 2007 Operation Post Card Drive. In 2005, we collected 2,250 cards, in 2006, 4,240 cards; and this past season (2007) - we double again - to 7,570 cards collected and distributed to our country's sons and daughters in service.
Our thank-you list includes individuals, schools, churches, and community organizations, private and corporate businesses though out Northern Nevada. Regretfully, this year, the list is too lengthy to mention each person or group by name, but we would be remiss if we didn't extend a special thanks to our friends at The Record-Courier who continue to help us with ongoing coverage and community awareness.
The following is a reprint of a card written by Mr. and Mrs. Dombey. I believe this one says it all:
Dear Soldier and Patriot,
Yesterday we drove from Northern Nevada to San Francisco. We got in our car when we wanted and drove where we wanted. We stopped to eat lunch when and where we wanted. We passed literally hundreds of people doing the same thing. We didn't worry about snipers, or bombs or how we were dressed or if we had permission papers to cross state lines. Our air was clean, our water was clean, and our restaurants were clean. We passed churches of all faiths. The day was beautiful and when we finished our trip we returned to find our neighborhood in its usual peaceful state.
All of this is because you and your commitment to keeping the liberties we enjoy in tact. We honor you. We appreciate you so very much. We pray for you and your families. We support you. We respect you and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your country counts you among its most choice. God bless you.
President Sierra Nevada
