Military families in Hernando County Florida are banging their drums in support of a Marine Gold Star Mother, Dee Mills. Dee is a very special mother, working daily to raise funds to pay for postage for packages going to our troops. Local organizations in the surrounding area know that Dee will be there to help them when postage is needed.
Dee’s son, Marine Sgt. Lea Mills. was killed in action in Iraq in 2006. Dee knew that her son Lea would not want his brothers and sisters in arms forgotten. In lieu of flowers she requested friends and family to send money to her new organization “Lea’s Prayers and Postage.” As of today, she has raised over $100,000.00 for postage for packages for our troops. Many of these packages are mailed out from the post office named after Sgt. Lea Mills.
Today you have the opportunity to help Dee Mills continue her work. Please vote daily for Dee in the Energizer Hall of Fame contest.
As a Blue Star Mother I had the heartbreaking honour of presenting Dee with the Gold Star Banner on November 11th, 2007, at the VFW Post 9236 at Hernando Beach, Florida. Today, I am asking my Blue Star Families to stand beside me and vote for this outstanding mother. Please take a moment to vote for Dee today, and also read the write up from The St. Petersburg Times.
Nominating Dee was easy, now I need your help to get those votes. Together we can help other servicemen and women receive another package from home.
