Hello and welcome! Hope no-one minds my cheating a little by updating last year's diary. I was inspired to write this by my little woozle, Casey. I've read all of the NFTT diaries to him, and he's told me how much he appreciates what the troops are doing to keep us all safe. He's a very brave little guy and thinks that he would make a fine war woozle himself (he already has the dog tags), but I had to put my foot down when he said he wanted to enlist. I told him that if he really wanted to help, we'd write a diary together.
If you'd like to see a little history about war woozles, I've found some interesting links here:
A nice photo essay:
Now - some pictures of our brave woozle warriors:
Little Smoky here had a fascinating story: http://www.dogsgossip.com/...
And a word from my inspiration:
If you have any pictures of our brave woozles, pooties or other critters of war, you are welcome to post them here - thanks for stopping by!
The NFTT diaries are a way for the Daily Kos community to support the troops in Afghanistan. We send them packages of items they might not otherwise receive through the normal military process but that they find useful. This is a non-political diary. While we understand there are differing views on the wars and the warriors, the site gives plenty of opportunity to express those views elsewhere. Furthermore, we would hope that users do not engage with those that attempt to hijack or otherwise disrupt these diaries.
We appreciate your understanding and support. Thanks!
