PHOTOS: La Strada pin-up girls go to the troops.


Jaime Nikoletich, Miss April, signs her month inside a pin-up calendar at La Strada Retaurant on Second Street in Long Beach, Calif. on Monday, January 4, 2010. La Strada owner Lisa Ramelow created the calenders to benefit pancreatic cancer but when she had over a thousand left over she decided to send them to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Each calendar is signed by at least one of the girls featured in the calendar (they are also her employees) and a customer of the eatery. She has received hundreds of letters of thanks from American warriors including a flag that was carried in battle in Iraq. See more pictures>>
