I really like this idea!

I bet they wouldn't mind reading some letters from home and wouldn't mind
seeing copies of the local newsletters, and maybe some pictures of the local
tourneys etc. I bet you might be able to hit up their local groups for
letters and copies of the their newsletter for this kind of thing.

Kind Regards,

I will offer to be the co-coordinator for this!! Surely if we can gather
enough pickles and Gatorade for six tourney fields, we can round up
supplies for our modern day soldiers!  This is a cause very dear to my
heart and I will do whatever I can to help!  I am sure that there are
other in Halfiras as well that would support this, so let me know where
to start!!! I can get a list of recommended supplies from the Veterans
Affairs office here at Cherokee Nation if you would like and then we can
go fro there!

In service,

I'm not sure where Balsac is right now.  Isa, are you still on the list?
Care to give us a Balsac update?  One of our boys from Mooneschadowe,
Belgutai, came home recently but I'm not sure where Bill (whose SCA name
escaping me) is right now either.  The Wastelands has a young man in the
Navy but he's in Japan, not in the middle east.  And apparently Danulf,
from Mooneschadowe, is heading into the Army this week.  Who knows where
will end up.  There may be more - those are the few I know.

Zubeydah, if you would be willing to be a coordinator, I'm sure that the
Barony would be willing to help.

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

I think this would be a very very cool thing to do.... I'd previously
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
Friedrich von Konigsberg, was killed while serving his country in Iraq.
One of the things that we learned from Friedrich's frequent emails home
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
lift their spirits and reminds them that we appreciate their service.

In honor of Friedrich and his life, many of his friends have begun
and sending care packages to the men and women who are serving in Iraq
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
harm's way. I therefore invite, nay, challenge the other baronies,
and cantons in this great kingdom to do the same. How many groups out
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
effort of collecting the donations, then boxing and shipping it -
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
problem - just have your group's coordinator contact us at the email
below, and we'll tell you all that you need to know. Furthermore, we'll
a tally of the groups who are joining in this effort and sing each
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
Come on, Ansteorra, let's do what little we can to honor and support

Thank you,
Sir Pendaran & Mistress Jehanne
