Today marks the beginning of the sixth year of the US operation in Iraq.
No matter what your politics, I hope you'll consider doing something today for those who've been harmed by the war. There are several charities that aid both soldiers and civilians caught in this conflict, and several groups that offer assistance to veterans. If you live near a military installation, inquire about volunteer opportunities. Consider sending a service member abroad a care package via AnySoldier.com. Investigate charities that help civilians who've been affected. I made a donation yesterday to the Vietnam Veterans of America, which offers assistance to all vets (not just those who served in Vietnam.)
Let's hope year six is the final year.
