Ocean, Sky and Khaki? Why?

A few bloggers get together and suddenly a new blog is born. I didn't even know we were expecting!

Ocean, Sky and Khaki is a blog set up to help support Australian military forces serving away from home, particularly those overseas, with things like care parcels, postcards, letters and to provide information on what to put in the parcels and where to send the parcels, postcards and letters.

Nilk, Boy and I want OSK to be a point of reference and meeting for those who wish to support Australia's Military and for members to contact us to let us know what to put in those care packages to make their lives a little easier.

If anyone has any links or ideas for the blog please let us know at OSK. Any serving military members are welcome to help us with their input.

Why Ocean, Sky and Khaki?

Khaki seemed like a good name for the blog. Khaki was taken and the military isn't just khaki. It's the White (RAN - Navy) and the Blue (RAAF -Air Force), too. And it's the blue beret, the green beret and the red beret.

This is not a political blog, however, after reading what the Canuks can be sent in their GINORMOUS parcels, I wonder if the DOD might consider increasing embiggening their size limit for parcels to our service personnel.

Please, help spread the word. It's people who will make this idea work.

Shamelessly ripped from Kae and ... oh wait...
