First up, E-Books for Troops will help you share your used Kindle with our troops overseas.

Here’s more about a recent donation (pictured): “we loved the extra effort taken by members of Alpha Battery, 4-320 Field Artillery Regiment, 4th BCT, 101st Airborne Division, to show their appreciation for the 10 Kindle 2′s that we shipped to them earlier this year in Afghanistan.  Note how well the specially made camo jackets donated by M-Edge Accessories blend into the scene.”
