Thank a soldier
Before you settle down in a trypto haze for the football games, I'd ask that you remember the troops who will be far from family gatherings. No matter how you feel about the war, the folks who are stuck fighting it deserve a little extra cheer and Captain Ed points us to an easy way to send a message of support.
The major cell carriers have agreed to participate in The Giving Thanks Campaign, which asks Americans to text a message of support that will get delivered to men and women all over the world wearing the US uniform. All you have to do is send a text message from your cellphone to 89279 to brighten someone's day -- and it won't cost a penny.If you're wondering what to say, Ed also has a widget on his post that shows the messages as they're being sent. Me, I still haven't figured out how to send a text and my attempts at answering one were rather dismal, so I'm just going to try to send a simple "Thanks."
