When I was little, friends and I would volunteer at the Red Cross in the summer. I believe we were in the fifth grade. We would package items in ziplock bags, because of the swampy places the soldiers were in, they needed things to keep moisture out. We wrote letters, also. We were sending things to The Big Red One. It made us feel helpful and it was a lot of fun. I can't imagine doing what our soldiers do, and I am very appreciative.
