Books 4 Vets

I'm passing this note along from the military-chaplains Yahoo group. We know Buddhists are big readers - so if you have an extra Dharma text, please also pass this along!

"Anyone who has been hospitalized knows that between visits from family and
friends there is little to do to keep up one's spirits. Books fill that
void by not only filling time but providing education. A wise man once
said, "A man confined to a bed can travel the world through books."

If you have an old (or new) book you've read that is now only taking up
space you can make a very appreciative veteran. To make a book contribution
mail a used (or new) book (or two, or three) to The American War Library.
(PLEASE DO NOT SEND MONEY TO BUY BOOKS)

ADDRESS TO MAIL YOUR "BOOK(S) FOR VETS":

Books For Vets
The American War Library
16907 Brighton Avenue
Gardena CA 90247-5420

[Please use the United States Post Office's low cost "Media Mail" shipping
rate to mail your book(s) to The War Library.]

Hi Chaplain! I just started a blog too. It may take a while for me to get the hang of it.
