Essentially it is a network set up to help servicemen and women ask the public for everyday items they cannot find while they are serving (generally overseas). YOU select who YOU wish to help (actually not so easy with so many good causes).
Whether we believe in the war / conflict or whatever they call it, I can't think of many causes more deserving. Simple things will make them happy, homemade cookies, a poster, pens, socks, baby wipes, shampoo and the list goes on and on. But believe it or not some desperately need special flashlights and the like. Others are looking for used clothing for the Afghan and Iraqi children.
This is what the banner on the site says:

Persons using this site may be overcome with tears of sympathy or tears of joy. May also cause a sense of pride in our great nation and the fighting men and women who defend our freedom.
Let's show these men and woman that we do care and we do appreciate their effort. They are facing some tough times. And I for one am sick of the out of sight out of mind attitude that is prevalent with us Americans (myself included).
How about these quotes from a fellow deadhead I met on this site: "The only message I would have would just be to remember all the soldiers who have given everything to support Americas freedom and even if you don't support the cause, always support the troops!" Another quote from him "we lost 3 soldiers this week alone". Heavy stuff. And when I offered to send him a care package he politely declined and asked that I send it to soldiers who have it more difficult than he does, a real stand up guy.
There are plenty of great causes out there, some of which I will always supprt. In all my years this is one of the BEST causes I have ever seen. I know I will make a difference in a soldiers life real soon. Why not join in?
~The futures here, we are it, we are on our own...on our own...........
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
