How can you help the military???

Some of you may know that I am a couponer...I don't know if that is a word or not. I coupon weekly and love it. I know you might think this is too much work and sometimes my obsession can turn into a lot of work but it doesn't have to be...I just make it that way.
I am also a supporter of our military. I have 2 brothers who were in the military, a husband, grandpa's, and uncles. They have all sacrificed for our freedoms.
Anyway, I found a way for my obsession with coupons to turn into a benefit for the military men and women serving overseas. I am posting this in hopes that there are other couponers who would love to help the military as well. Did you know that overseas military members and their families can use expired coupons up to six months past their expiration? Isn't that awesome? All of those coupons that I end up throwing away or can't use will now go to a good cause besides the garbage!
If you would like to help here is the link to the blog where I found out the information. What do you think?

Very cool! I do major shopping every 4-6 months, so I don't really get into coupons, but I could send them on anyway instead of throwing them away without looking at them. Thanks for sharing.
