Mom of the Year - Soldiers' Angels 

Many of our readers know I ship packages to American soldiers in Iraq. I've been doing this since 2003. The group I originally linked through was Soldiers' Angels. This year, the founder of Soldiers' Angels, Patti Patton-Bader, is one of the finalists for America's favorite mom.

If you click on this link, you can go there and vote for Patti - I'd sure like it if you would. She is the mom with the medium-length dark hair, on the left side, under military mom.

Her organization, Soldiers' Angels, now operates internationally to provide letters, care packages, and comfort items to our deployed men and women as well as support for their families here at home. In addition, Soldiers' Angels provides assistance to the wounded, continuing support for veterans, remembrances and comfort for families of the fallen and immediate response to the unique difficulties that some may require.

You can just vote or you can sign up to adopt a soldier.

Regardless, this is support for our finest and bravest. We are extremely fortunate to have such an organization supporting members of our outstanding military.
