9.  I served , USMC, 40yrs ago, twice went to RVN and only got in the way 3 times.
My son is currently serving, first tour in Afghan. I pray that he doesn't "get in the way" and returns safely to his family. And ours.

He receives a "care" package each week from us, two a week from his family, and 2-3 a month from his surviving grandparent. He is lucky. There are several members of his unit that receive NOTHING from their families.

We, our family, have adopted them. Now they receive at least one or two from their "new" family.

Yes we "support our troops" They are us.
