Lizzie Palmer created this video on YouTube.
This video is taken from a British series where Gareth Malone takes a group of military wives and turns them into a choir. The husbands are all away in Afghanistan. Gareth looks about 16 years old but is actually in his mid-30s and a Choir master for the London Symphony Orchestra, among other things. They wrote a song based on excerpts from letters written by the couples whilst apart and this is the beautiful result.

Carole Ellis heard of an idea for her husband, Hugh's, birthday party. She invited friends and family by invitation and also inside was a request to bring donations (she included an item list) and/or a check for Care Package postage for our Soldiers instead of gifts for Hugh. The party was wonderful and the type and quantity of contributions was overwhelming. See more in
