Soldiers' Angels honors Michigan teenager Alexandra McGregor for her role in helping to create our first National Support The Troops Day on March 26, 2006.

The Soldiers' Angels salute Michigan teenager, Alexandra McGregor, Michigan State Representative Robert Knollenberg and Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow for the recent passage of legislation in both the US Congress and US Senate to establish a National Support The Troops Day. This is intended for recognition of our active duty troops and the first date is set for March 26, 2006.

In a statement from the website of Representative Knollenberg, the Congressman encourages the following: "Our service men and women make enormous sacrifices to keep us safe and to protect our freedoms. They leave their homes and families, work in highly stressful and dangerous conditions, and ensure that all of us here at home are safe and secure. We need to honor these men and women and show them that Americans across the country are appreciative of their work and sacrifice," Congressman Knollenberg said. "With this resolution, it is my hope that our troops will know that the American people -- from the 16-year-old girl in Waterford (Alexandra McGregor) to the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives -- are grateful for their service. Our country is at war and it is more important than ever to show our appreciation for our brave and dedicated men and women in uniform."

The legislation states, "all Americans should participate in a moment of silence to reflect upon the service and sacrifice of members of the United States Armed Forces both at home and abroad."

Soldiers Angels would like to also encourage Americans to take advantage of the National Support The Troops Day to pray for our troops and to find a way to let our troops know that they are appreciated through the sending of letters and care packages or any of the many other ways that our troops need assistance. For those citizens who do not have time to participate in such projects, but who wish to support the military members stationed far away to guard our freedom, cash donations can be made quickly at the Soldiers' Angels website and are put to use in the purchase of supplies for our deployed and for wounded soldiers and their families overseas and at home.
