The sisterhood reminds us

Two years later, in 2011, more than 50 ladies turned the Centennial Building into something resembling the warehouse and sent off more than 700 boxes.

This year the goal is an astounding 1,000 boxes, with women arriving in Gulf County representing deployed servicemen and women from all branches of the military.

That beach vacation has become synonymous with a campaign to ensure as many troops as possible feel the love.

This year will even feature a blood drive at WindMark Beach.

These women represent men and women who are our better angels.

There is an organization called Soldiers’ Angels, an organization of volunteers with a goal that “No Soldier go Unloved.”

Spawned by a mother who had a deployed son comment on the number of soldiers who seemed to receive nothing from home, who seemed to be fighting alone in many ways, the organization serves as something of a portal for efforts to reach troops from the home front.
