You have until December 10 to participate in a worthy service project called "Holiday Mail for Heroes."
It's an initiative by the Red Cross and Pitney Bowes to make sure our servicepeople around the globe know how much we love and appreciate their efforts.
Thanks and a tip o'the Mark's Musings cap to list member Lavonne T. for the heads up.
The wife of a friend returned from a tour of duty in the Middle East. To celebrate, we decided to double date for a night out on the town. Proud of her service record, my friend suggested that his wife wear her uniform.
Not only did a patriotic taxi driver refuse to take money for the fare, but an appreciative citizen paid for their meal at the restaurant and later, at the theater, the manager upgraded our balcony seats to ones near the orchestra, for free.
Toward the end of the evening my friend turned to his wife and said, "I still get credit for taking you out, right?"
