Do we have any service men or women from the Barony currently serving? Or from any of the Northern Region?

I think this would be a very very cool thing to do.... I'd previously worked with Blue Star Moms a bit; they seem like a good group, if a bit disorganized sometimes.

Greetings Ansteorra,
As many of you have heard and read in the last two weeks, one of our own;
Friedrich von Konigsberg, was killed while serving his country in Iraq. 
One of the things that we learned from Friedrich's frequent emails home was
just how much receiving care packages meant to the soldiers serving in
Middle-East. Anything that these brave men and women get from home helps to
lift their spirits and reminds them that we appreciate their service. 
In honor of Friedrich and his life, many of his friends have begun gathering
and sending care packages to the men and women who are serving in Iraq and
Afghanistan. This has lead people from Bryn Gwlad, where Friedrich lived, to
begin working as a group to gather and send care packages to our troops in
harm's way. I therefore invite, nay, challenge the other baronies, shires
and cantons in this great kingdom to do the same. How many groups out there
are willing to put forth just a little effort to let our soldiers and
marines who serve in hazardous duty know that we remember and appreciate
them? All you need is one or two people from each group to coordinate the
effort of collecting the donations, then boxing and shipping it - everyone
else can just drop off donated items at fighter practice or populous
meetings. It's that easy. 
What's that? You don't know what to send or where to send it? That's not a
problem - just have your group's coordinator contact us at the email address
below, and we'll tell you all that you need to know. Furthermore, we'll keep
a tally of the groups who are joining in this effort and sing each group's
praise on these lists and in as many courts as possible. 
We often speak of heroes in the SCA, and sing their praises. Well now we
have the chance to honor true heroes - the men and women who have
voluntarily placed themselves in harm's way in order to help keep us safe.
Come on, Ansteorra, let's do what little we can to honor and support these
Thank you,
Sir Pendaran & Mistress Jehanne
