A Simple Way to Support Our Troops

It seems that week is all about correspondence. We made our own envelopes, it's our week to send postcards for the first swap, and I have some long overdue thank you notes on the "must do" to do list! The perfect week, especially with the 4th of July coming up, for us to send cards to people serving overseas in the military. It was something I had on the list of ideas for our Help projects, but I really had no idea where to begin.

After some web research, I found Any Soldier which is a site where you can get addresses, wish lists, and more. Each soldier listed is someone who volunteers to help. So you send mail or packages to them and they distribute them to others.

Jack and I requested two addresses...one Army and one Air Force...and each wrote a letter to them. I hope they get there quickly and are a tiny bright spot in someone else's day. Jack's are incredibly cute, but he wanted to keep them private. Oh and he included my email address on them in case they wanted to write him back...that would be really cool!

This is a great project! His notes were very sweet. I'm sure it will brings smiles to the troops. The little man was asking about the different branches of military and what they do. Always wanting to learn more. Nice job Momacita!
