In just one month, STEPS to HONOR officially begins. I have a lot to do to get the word out about this awareness program. I have to keep my focus and keep running everyday. Sometimes when I have a lot to do, I want to skip my workout. This program is keeping me accountable. I hope it will do the same for many others and bring about a new awareness of gratitude for those that serve and sacrifice on our behalf.
Before I close, I have to tell you about LexSHOUT - Lexington's Shout Out to the Troops! Several of us at Military Missions got together and put together a greeting for our deployed soldiers. We are sending care packages in May with a theme called "Greetings from the Bluegrass". We hope to send mementos of Kentucky and fill the packages with Kentucky postcards which have personal notes from our fellow Kentuckians. We plan to have our deployed military log onto our website and see our LexSHOUT video. We ran around Lexington yesterday taking crazy pictures at different city landmarks. We also took our video camera along and recorded messages for our troops. If you have an extra 5 minutes, you should watch our video greeting. If you know someone that is deployed, be sure to send them the link. We want all of our deployed troops to know that Kentuckians are grateful for what they are doing for all of us. To see the LexShout video with greetings to our troops, go to www.militarymissionsonline.com. Please share the video with all of your military friends!
