In 2006, I became pen pals with a soldier in Iraq. It was truly a unique experience. I was able to talk with him fairly frequently and encourage him as well. We'll lost touch now, as he's home with his family, but I often think about Lt. Craig. For me, it made all that was going on in the war, truly personal. I encourage you to take some sort of action and let our men and woman know how much we appreciate their efforts.
Regardless of how you feel about the war, American soldiers are serving our country and protecting the rights of freedoms we daily take for granted. They are far away from home and I'm sure would appreciate some love from home. If you would like to say thanks, please go to this website: www.letssaythanks.com.
There, you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services. How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! This is a great site. It is FREE and it only takes a second.
Or if you want to do more, you can adopt a soldier as well, find out more about it here: http://www.mysoldier.com/ .
