Supporting our Troops

This information explains how individuals and corporations can send greetings
and care packages ($25 donation to USO and they will send the package) to
mobilized troops.  Individuals in your community may not send packages
addressed to "any service member" like they did during Desert Shield/Storm
due to security concerns and the volume of packages.

Individuals are encouraged to display yellow ribbons at their home and
business to show support of our troops. Individuals are also encouraged to
send e-mail messages to the troops by going to
