Our soldiers are doing their job in Iraq with a level of courage and bravery that astounds me. I salute their efforts with all of my pride, along with my equal thanks to veterans of the military (Thank you, Jeff)
, it's that neon-colored foamy-type gunk that shoots like a string out of a can. Kids love it, adults love it, and soldiers now REALLY love it!
Many of our brave soldiers are continuing to go door-to-door, ridding Iraq of terrorists and insurgents one bad guy at a time. The Silly String comes in when solders prepare to enter a building of any kind. Tripwires are everywhere, and doorways are one of the main places they're found.
Soldiers spray the Silly String in the doorway and if it falls all the way to the ground then there is no wire. But if it hangs in the air, then it's caught on a wire. The Silly String isn't heavy enough to cause the traps to explode, which makes the string the perfect "tool" for this important job.New stories are being written daily, so I'm linking to the Google News page for this search term.
Keep an eye on it. Donation instructions are found in the articles. They're accepting cash to purchase more Silly String, or cans of it. And yes, the manufacturer, Wham-O brands
, is making donations of their product as well.OOH-RAH!
