***  From Lee Thomas:

Ned ~ Was cleaning out my queue and came across an old issue of JOTW
that I'd saved to reply to later … then forgot about.  Upon opening it
up again, I discovered the item below was what I'd intended to followup
further on.  My friend Germaine Broussard (aka the Cookie Lady) has been
preparing treats for the troops since the beginning.  She has a web site
(www.trooptreats.com) where you can email her, snail mail her, make a
donation via paypal, etc.  I just spoke to her and she said she is
always in need of notes, year-round, because every cookie package
includes a note to the service member.  The notes need to come without
envelopes, as Germaine reviews every one for appropriateness.  You can
Google Germiane and get quite a list of her press clips, but this one —

http://www.defenselink.mil/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=16542 — is a good
synopsis of what she's about. ~ C'Lee

***  Greater Washington Chapter Surface Navy Association Wounded Warrior

Project

For the past two years, the Greater Washington Chapter of the Surface
Navy Association has conducted a campaign to assist our wounded
shipmates recovering at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda,
MD.  We collected more than 800 DVDs for the Sailors and marines to
enjoy during their recuperation.  The following year we collected funds
and donated 155 portable DVD players.

This year we want to do something very meaningful for those of our
shipmates limited in their ability to get out and around the Washington
area during their convalescence.  We have determined that Operation
Second Chance provides many valuable services to military men and women,

and would greatly benefit from a conversion van equipped too transport
wheelchair patients in and around the D.C. area to attend sporting
events, concerts, and other wise get out and about. 

This is an expensive proposition, but very important for those men and
women who are virtually stuck in the hospital.  We have carefully looked

at Operation Second Chance and are very impressed with the organization
and the services it provides.

Therefore, SNA GWC is seeking to help OSC raise $30,000 to purchase a
conversion van modified by Adaptive Mobility Systems, Inc. (AMS Vans). 
Please indicate your contribution at the SNA website:

https://www.navysna.org/Events/OperationSecondChance.asp

This will take you directly to the OSC website fundraising page for
donations.  (When prompted “How did your hear about OSC?” click on
Surface Navy Association.)  Your donation will be made directly to OSC,
but we want to track our progress so we can follow our progress to
attaining our $30,000 goal.  

If we exceed the $30,000, the additional funds will be available to OSC
for
insurance, registration, maintenance and operating costs for the van. 

Please be generous, and share this appeal with others who share your
concern for those shipmates who had made a very great sacrifice in
service to their nation and security and freedom everywhere.

For information about SNA, visit  www.navysna.org.

For information about OSC, visit
http://www.operationsecondchance.org/About.htm.

(Some of you noted that Operation Second Chance had imposed a $50
minimum for credit card donations.  I have since arranged to have that
dropped to $20.
