Snowball Express

In about two weeks, I'll be having a wonderful time with my family at Disneyland. Many families of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines, will not have the luxury of a time with their loved ones this year... or ever again, but an organization called Snowball Express is trying for the next best thing.

These wonderful folks are planning a party and an all expenses paid trip together to Disneyland for families of servicemen and women killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The trip is just before Christmas this year.

Most of us over here will readily admit that the real heroes are not those of us doing our jobs, but our families back home, carrying on in our absence, and sometimes having to carry on without us permanently. I encourage you to visit the Snowball Express website and help out the families of our fallen warriors by giving them a wonderful holiday experience together with other families like them.

Dan -

I enjoy reading your I am also deployed as a Navy IA (currently deployed to Qatar).

Just wanted you to know that I read your snowball express blog and went to the website for a little info on the program. I was moved by the endeavor... and reading of what they are attempting to do gave me goosebumps!

I have subsequently donated to their cause.

Stay safe, shipmate!
