CNN Heroes

Bloggers, wanted to share this story with you: CNN Hero Kaylee Marie Radzyminski sends CDs and DVDs by the thousands to U.S. troops. The #1 thing troops miss is family... The #2 thing? Entertainment... Hear her thoughts on how her one-person mission has become a national effort.

Remembering our troops... and
how you can help...

    I have served two tours in Iraq, making the last tour my fourth overseas tour. I have a little more than five years to retire and at this point of my career I am tired! The support from the soldiers chain of command seems to get less and less every year. Despite all the programs the Army tries to emplament, there is nothing like a chain of command that soldiers believe care. Until that changes and the Army can increase and maintain a sufficient number of soldiers to serve, things will get worse before they get better. As a Senior NCO, I recommend to all my young soldiers to become officers ASAP. Enlisted soldiers are grossly underpaid and the GI Bill is a joke.
    Until our leaders show us their support, by providing service members with proper benefits. The military will continue to have retention issues.
