Hunt for Heroes!

Hey from the mountains of Japan!

Everyone knows that I am not too keen on advertising for companies in my Blog, and don't try to get people to use their heard earned money...BUT...

I need to take a few minutes to 'spread the word' about a worthwhile organization, one that really touches my heart:

SHOW OF SUPPORT.ORG is an organization dedicated to demonstrate support for our US Military by providing outdoor opportunities to those injured in the service to our country. These folks have been taking time out of their lives, and money out of their pockets, to help those who served, and were injured.

The evening news seems at times to have forgotten Iraq, Afghanistan, and other dangerous places around the world. As a result many people may not see too much about the men and women who are in harm's way each night, and their is a particular dearth of news about those who were wounded, and their lives after they come home. I see the daily casualty announcements from the DoD and I see veterans of these conflicts every day. I know that Show Of Support is positively affecting the veterans they have contact with. I have one of them in my office every day and at my house often. You can see the emotion in his eyes when he relates to me and others how much the time spent on the Hunt For Heroes has meant to him and others. These folks are making a real difference.

Here is what I am asking:

1. Please think about these brave men and women often!

2. Please take a moment to check out this organization. I will add their link below.

3. Please help to keep them in out thoughts and prayers by spreading the word about them and organizations like this. Let's not let their sacrifices be in vain.

4. Donate what you can...to anyone in need! Donate your time, as this is the most valuable thing we have to give! Give supplies, resources, and even money if you can! Help organizations like this to help others!

I will step off my pulpit now.

Thank you for listening!
