Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to
honor America's veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes
to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is
given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those
other veterans who may be terminally ill.
Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly
threatened our very existence as a nation—and as a culturally diverse,
free society. Now, with over one thousand World War II veterans dying
each day, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women
is running out.

terminally ill veterans are absolutely FREE.

The Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation (KNGF) commercial for veteran dogs
Published on Jan 10, 2014
** Winner of the Gouden Loeki 2014 (Dutch commercial award) ** "We not only help people who cannot see, but also those who have seen too much"
This Guide Dogs TV commercial from Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation (KNGF Geleidehonden) shows the assistance a veteran dog can offer in helping a military veteran who is coping with severe war related trauma.
I received this email from a friend of mine.
I wanted to share it with my readers.
Care packages from Marine Moms to service personnel contain diverse uses!
Read the whole thing . . . You'll love it! True story!
Be reminded that "God Works in Mysterious Ways".
(Tampons to the rescue in Iraq!! Don't worry, it's a good story, and worth reading.
It's even humorous in parts. It's from the mother of a Marine in Iraq.)
My son told me how wonderful the care packages we had sent them from the ladies
auxiliary were and wanted me to tell everyone thank you.
He said that one guy we'll call Marine X, got a female care package and
everyone was giving him a hard time. My son said, 'Marine X got some really
nice smelling lotion and everyone really likes it, so every time he goes to
sleep they steal it from him.' I told my son I was really sorry about the
mistake, and if he wanted I would send Marine X another package. He told me
not to worry about Marine X, because every time I send something to him, he
shares it with Marine X.
He said when my husband and I sent the last care package, Marine X came over to
his cot picked up the box, started fishing through it, and said, 'What'd we
get this time?'
But my son said they had the most fun with Marine X's package. He said he wasn't
sure who it was supposed to go to, but the panties were size 20, and he said
one of the guys got on top of the Humvee and jumped off with the panties
over his head and yelled, 'Look at me, I'm an Airborne Ranger!'
One of the guys connected the panties to an antenna and it blew in the wind like
a windsock. He said it entertained them for quite awhile. Then of course .. . .
they had those tampons. When he brought this up, my imagination just went
running, but he continued.
My son said they had to go on a mission and Marine X wanted the Chap-Stick and
lotion for the trip. He grabbed a bunch of the items from his care package
and got in the Humvee. As luck would have it, he grabbed the tampons too,
and my son said everyone was teasing him about 'not forgetting his feminine
He said things went well for a while, then the convoy was ambushed and a Marine
was shot. He said the wound was pretty clean, but it was deep. He said they
were administering first aid but couldn't get the bleeding to slow down, and
someone said, 'Hey! Use Marine X's tampons!' My son said they put the tampon
in the wound. At this point my son profoundly told me, 'Mom, did you know
that tampons expand?’ ('Well . . . yeah!')
They successfully slowed the bleeding until the guy got better medical attention.
When they went to check on him later, the surgeon told them, 'You guys saved
his life. If you hadn't stopped that bleeding he would have bled to death.'
My Son said, 'Mom, the tampons sent by the Marine Moms by mistake saved a
At this point I asked him, 'Well, what did you do with the rest of the tampons?'
He said, 'Oh, we divided them up and we all have them in our flak jackets, and
I kept two for our first aid kit.'
I am absolutely amazed by the ingenuity of our Marines. I can't believe that
something that started out as a mistake then turned into a joke, ended up
saving someone's life. My sister said she doesn't believe in mistakes. She
believes God had a plan all along. She believes that 'female care package'
was sent to Marine X to save our Marine.
Either way, our efforts have boosted the morale of many Marines, provided much
needed items for our troops, AND saved the life of a Marine! God bless every
one of you for your efforts and hard work, and God bless our Marines, Army,
Navy, Air Force and all our military service
