Above and Beyond

I received an email with an opportunity to say Thank YOU to one of the most amazing people I have ever met. Patti Patton-Bader, the woman who began that incredible organization, Soldiers' Angels.

Patti is a finalist in the Microsoft Above and Beyond Awards. There are several categories and Patti has been nominated for The Effort Award. Here is a bit about that:

The Effort Award:
This award recognizes an individual who:

* Offers outstanding support and comfort to our troops.

* Helps enhance morale and personal welfare of our troops.

* Through their mentorship, inspires other groups/individuals to create new and unique ways to show their support of the troops.

* Has impacted the lives of many through their leadership and guidance

Now honestly. Can you think of ANYONE that describes more than Patti? I know I can't.

There will be an award ceremony in New York City on November 12th.

So follow the link to vote. Compared to all she's done and continues to do every day, it's the LEAST that we can do....

Oh, and then go HERE to adopt a soldier.

I voted, and I've already got a soldier, my second one since my first one is coming home next month.
