No, no need for that personal of information here! Use this space to write a brief introduction about your past or present service in any military branch of any country.

Its that time again
The care package site was Yule specific. Circle Sanctuary has within a week released invitations for this year's PSG and they are very much still active. I suggest you try their home link without the military sub-address and follow the provided links.
I just tried to go to the website for Circle Sanctuary but nothing comes up...is the site under construction or does it not work anymore?
First suggestion, join Order of the Pentacle.
Circle Sanctuary hosts CircleCare, which sends Pagan care packages to troops anywhere in the world: www.circlesanctuary.org/military/carepackages.htm
Also, contact magusbooks.com and ask Roger (the owner), who handles the donations of books and tools taken there for military members.
I will add more to this list as I encounter them or...remember them.
What are some of these organisations?
There are donation boxes in every metaphysical store that I have been in that are for Pagan service members, and they are usually full. There are organizations set up that you can find online that have the sole purpose of supplying ritual items, both hard goods and consumables, to our Pagan brothers and sisters in uniform.
Order of the Pentacle is part of Circle Sanctuary and was started during the fight to have the Pent as an authorized religious symbol on national headstones. Selena Fox also has a federally recognized military cemetery on Sanctuary land for deceased Pagan service members, and membership is free.
There is a move right now to change the military rules and requirements for chaplaincy to allow Wiccan chaplains in uniform. Cherry Hill is trying, but individual members in uniform are making greater strides to this end.
Being on the outside, helping to fund, inform and politically motivate has been a rewarding, frustrating and enlightening experience and I am not alone in this. The military now affords equal status and recognition to Wiccans in uniform, but they have not quite figured out how to facilitate this yet. We are helping to guide them and provide impetus where necessary.
Just wanted to know what is it like to be a Pagan/Witch/Wicca/Whatever you claim, whilst being IN the Military?
p.s. I was no longer in the Army when I became a Witch so I have no base for reference.
