DID offers our best wishes to our American readers on another Independence Day birthday, and thanks to the troops serving at home and abroad. If our readers want to do concrete to show that support, Winds of Change.NET offers a comprehensive roundup of links to organizations that support troops in the field and their families. The list includes a number of American links that the DoD's America Supports You site does not have, and covers Australian, British, Canadian, Danish, Israeli, and Polish troops; plus organizations acting on behalf of civilians and contractors in the war zones.
