F is for Furriner.

While we're all about looking after our diggers, there are still other countries out there who have troops in harm's way.

The Americans have a lot of support for their guys with groups like Soldiers' Angels and Any Soldier, but they're not the only ones in the world.

Last week I stumbled across Sending Kindness in Packages, for example.

For those readers in the UK who might want to do something for their own troops, you could always start at Support Our Soldiers, and an organisation for the Canucks*, courtesy of Mini Capt (from around the blogging traps is Chosen Soldier.

Now the Canadians and the Poms (and of course the Americans) aren't the only other countries with forces fighting over in the Middle East, but they are probably the best known.

Israeli forces might like a package, and over in the archives at Winds of Change there is a post with links for other countries. I can't testify as to the usefulness of the links yet, though, since I've not had a chance to go through them.

That's a project for the near future.

In the meantime, feel free to keep posting and showing our serving personnel that they're not forgotten.

*That'll be the Canadians. :)
