Cellphones For Soldiers
Cell Phones for Soldiers hopes to turn old cell phones into more than 12 million minutes of prepaid calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas in 2008. To do so, Cell Phones for Soldiers expects to collect 50,000 cell phones each month through a network of more than 3,000 collection sites across the country. “Americans will replace an estimated 130 million cell phones this year,” says Mike Newman, vice president of ReCellular, “with the majority of phones either discarded or stuffed in a drawer.  Most people don’t realize that the small sacrifice of donating their unwanted phones can have a tremendous benefit for a worthy cause like Cell Phones for Soldiers.”

As of May, 2008 we have sent over 350,000 tags to the troops overseas to send home to their children.

The Long Walk Home
A non-profit organization formed by Ron Zaleski in 2006 to call attention to the need for mandatory PTSD counseling for all military troops
prior to discharge.  Ron authored a proposed three point program to address the inevitable stress all military personnel experience. 
He did this because he finds it unacceptable that there is a current suicide rate of an average of 18 veterans a day ~ and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
