Thanks to the generosity of gourmet gifts retailer Harry & David, troops far from home this holiday season will have an extra special treat in their Soldiers’ Angels care packages—Harry & David’s delicious and hugely-popular Moose Munch® Bars.

The “Support Our Troops Moose Moose Munch® Drive” previously resulted in over 115,000 bars sent to soldiers overseas and is returning just in time for the winter holidays. Harry & David stores nationwide are offering customers the opportunity to purchase two Moose Munch® bars for $4 (one bar is usually $2.50) and donate one of the two bars for the Moose Munch® Bar Drive along with a personal message to a soldier. Soldiers’ Angels will distribute this new round of bars in its Wrapped in Holiday Spirit care packages and Harry & David is assisting with shipping.

“We’re delighted to support our troops on the front lines,” said Steve Heyer, CEO of Harry & David. “The program gives our customers the opportunity to give back to soldiers who have already given so much of themselves for our country.”

“This is a fantastic gift for deployed service members who will be so far from home during the Holidays and we are thrilled to be able to include the in our care packages,” says Soldiers’ Angels Founder Patti Patton-Bader. “Moose Munch® Bars will be sure to bring a smile to the faces of these heroes.”

Soldiers’ Angels is aiming to send a Wrapped in Holiday Spirit care package to every deployed service member this holiday season. Care packages will include snacks, candy, hot chocolate, socks, a handmade blanket, a travel mug and a personal note.

To participate in the Support Our Troops Moose Munch® Bar Drive, visit your local Harry & David store.

A Request from a Gold Star Father regarding Washington Flag

If you don’t know who Robert Stokely is, he is a Gold Star father.  His son,SGT Mike Stokely, was killed in Iraq in 2005.  Robert has stayed involved with his son’s unit.  He recently sent a request to Soldiers’ Angels.  From the letter he sent:

Today, I had a request from the guys there when I stopped by the Armory.  They asked me if I knew how to get them a State Flag from each of the 50 States.  I told them give me some time to think on it and I’d get back to them.  They want to hang the flags in their Armory.  Their reason?  They said they serve America and they have a Georgia Flag, but felt they ought to have a flag for each of the other 49 States they represent when they deploy. I’d like to go another step and add the U.S. Territories if possible and Germany, since they have had wounded come through Landstuhl that MaryAnn took care of…..

Please share about this on the blogs.  The full letter is posted on the Soldiers’ Angels site athttp://soldiersangels.org/index.php?mact=News,cntnt01,detail,0&cntnt01articleid=667&cntnt01returnid=15.

Be sure to stress this:

To ensure no duplicates, if you can get a flag for 2/121 please contact Robert and let him know which state flag you can provide:  rrmwastokely@aol.com or  678-4161-387.

So far, I am aware of a Vermont and Virginia flag being sent.  He’s looking for the standard sizes: 2′ x 4′ or 3′ x 5′.
