The Soldier To Movies project I have been blogging about continues to grow. A total of 1680 movie packages (DVD, microwave popcorn, gooey candy and drink mix) have gotten to the troops so far, with the majority going direct to the Family Readiness Group in Germany which handles final delivery rather than thru the local organizer in the Milwaukee area. Said organizer originally targetted Thanksgiving as the end date for the project, but has been inspired by the response to continue indefinately so that new troops arriving in the sandbox can enjoy the entire experience instead of just hand-me-down DVDs.

The American Forces Press Service has reported on the project, and thru that report I learned of the Defense Department's website America Supports You, which is a resource for anyone wishing to participate in these morale building projects or start one of their own.
