Are you looking for a gift for a reader on your holiday shopping list? Then I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that you buy T Boone Pickens newest book "The First Billion Is the Hardest: Reflections on a Life of Comebacks and America's Energy Future".
Besides being an interesting read the book does something even more important. The proceeds from the sale of the book support the Brooke Army Medical Center and Fisher House two organizations focused on helping our wounded troops and their families during their difficult journey of recovery from illness and injury.
I've written about support of Fisher House before and the support Fisher House logo is even in my profile on Active Rain. This is an organization I support and one that serves a big need for families. When my husband was wounded in the middle east we were fortunate that the Red Cross stepped in and assisted our family with housing outside of Landsthul in Germany. Fisher House now provides an even better option to keep families in a home environment close to major medical facilities. Having family close by is a huge part of helping wounded servicemen and women recovery.
So pick up a holiday gift that is two gifts in one! A good read and support for our wounded troops and their families.
