Support Our Troops

Soldier’s parents list the many ways to support our troops | Woodbridge, NJ

Matt and Julie Barany are Woodbridge residents who are members of the Blue Star Family and Support Group, made up of families of service members.  They wrote a nice article that was published on; the link is above.

From the article on

In our last effort to mail packages to our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, we spent more than $700. We sent packages to 35 deployed soldiers. We cannot understand why members of Congress can have free postage privileges but our deployed servicemen can't. This is why we appeal to our neighbors for their assistance.

We have repeatedly seen how enthusiastically our neighbors have responded when we have informed them of a need for our troops. It is very encouraging. If you would like to help to defray the expense of sending packages to our troops, please feel free to contact the Blue Star Family and Support Group at or send check payable to the Blue Star Family Support Group, c/o T. Nulty Post 471, 25 Brown Ave., Iselin, NJ 08830.

Doesn't that sound like a great way to celebrate Memorial Day? I think I'm going to send a check in a thank you card today. How 'bout you?
