Mother of a Soldier
On March 1, 2004, Dan Forant, father of Spc. Daniel Forant III, will begin a 3,000 mile trip by bicycle to benefit our troops serving in Iraq. His journey will begin in Albany, New York and finish in Pasadena, California taking approximately 45 days, weather permitting. Due to a generous offer, Mr. Forant will have a laptop with video and still picture capability whereby that information is sent to New York City via satellite-broadband-uplink. America will be able to watch his daily progress by visiting his site.
Mr. Forant?s website www.supportourtroops.com was established to honor his son and his brave comrades during their deployment in Iraq. The website has grown immeasurably in this short time and has been able to reach out to many service members. Recently he teamed up with the Soldier?s Angels http://soldiersangels.homestead.com in this endeavor to reach out to our troops.
Soldier?s Angels is a website founded by Patti Patton-Bader, mother of Spc. Brandon Varn also deployed to Iraq. Staff includes Susie Feaster, Ana-Marie Smith, Robin Boerner, and Peggy Baker. The Soldier?s Angels mission is to provide aide and comfort to any of the armed forces and their families. To date they have accomplished to send over 2000 care packages to deployed soldiers, helped the wounded at three major military hospitals and aided many military families.
