CUP OF JOE FOR A JOE
If you are looking for a simple way to thank the troops serving overseas today, please consider supporting the Cup of Joe for a Joe program. My wife and I have been participating in this program, sponsored by Green Beans Coffee, for almost a year now. I honestly don't know who gets more from the program....those receiving a few cups of coffee and a couple of words of thanks for serving, or my wife and I, who receive notes of thanks from them.
Here's the website for Green Beans Coffee and the Cup of Joe program:
In a couple of clicks, you are sending a cups of home to those serving far away from their families. If you supply your email address, you give them the opportunity to thank you back. Here are just two of the many "thank you's" we've received:
"Thank you so much for thinking of us. It is amazing what a cup of coffee can do for morale! We'll do our best to keep our heads down but to get the job done. It is a privilege to serve and an honor to be thanked. God bless you."
"Thank you for your kindness especially this time of year. It's tough to be so far from home but it's great to know that those of us who serve are remembered. Send my well wishes to the Post and tell them all that I appreciate the sacrifices they have made for our great nation."
