Card Count Update

Again, a HUGE thank you to everyone who has sent in cards for the troops! I'm realizing I haven't posted the numbers for a couple of rounds, so here is an update.

In May we sent 815 cards, and in June we sent 1300. These numbers are down a bit from before, but the trend seems to be on the upswing again.

Thanks again to everyone who has participated. The troops currently in Iraq are facing a long deployment: when they went over, they were looking at 12 months, but in the meantime have been extended to 15 months. All Army troops headed over in the forseeable future have been told to expect at least a 15 month deployment. These men and women can use all the encouragement possible, so please keep the cards coming.

Please remember it makes our lives easier if you group cards according to theme, and label with the type of card and number of cards in each grouping. Thanks!
