Lack of posting Notice

Sorry for the lack of new posts on Trek to the Troops.   As a reminder, I am busy with attending college and working with a Student Veterans  Club on campus which takes up more of my time so less time to be posting on Trek to the Troops website which is pretty much a blog these days no events and activities for Trek to the Troops for the time being.    That could change after I complete my education goals and maybe bring things back into action.   The Veterans club for the campus does have a website which I also manage.  I will try to make at least a few posts a month on latest news and interesting veterans related news and stories to pass along as I have the opportunity too.
