These folks got a LOT of support.

Me - I sent CPT Patti another package as part of Operation Ramen Noodle yesterday.
There are a dozen or more pallets in all, all 4 feet by 4 feet by 4 feet: pallets full of balls and board games and racquets; two pallets devoted just to squirt guns.

Other pallets are full of popcorn, Kool-Aid, candy and 2,000 Bibles donated by a former contestant on the TV-show “Survivor.”

“And there are still truckloads coming,” Jenny Jeffery said.

Called “Operation Remember Me,” the effort is one of numerous grass-roots charitable works for U.S. servicemembers. Among other recent efforts are Operation Comix Relief, which sent comics to soldiers in Afghanistan; Operation Playmate, which allows soldiers to e-mail Playboy models; the self-explanatory Operation Air Conditioner; and the mysterious Operation Underwear.
