Blue Star Mothers seek items for troops

As a member of the Blue Star Mothers of America, we become accustomed to requests for specific items from deployed troops. We, the Yavapai County Blue Star Mothers, have received just such a request from one of our own sons.

Recently deployed to Afghanistan, this young soldier's unit is working alongside the Afghan troops, training them to fight terrorists. He recently asked his grandmother to send him thermal underwear. When asked what happened to his, the reply was what has become known to us Blue Star Mothers as "typical" of our troops - "The Afghan troops have none."
