Thank You Soldier

Today I signed up for a GREAT program, Thank You Soldier. I signed up for the Letter Project. We write letters to soldiers overseas, thanking them for what they do. I’m very very excited about this 🙂

Do you have 5 minutes and a first class stamp?

Whether walking a patrol in Baghdad, riding a helicopter in Afghanistan or filling supply requisitions in Kuwait, men and women wearing the uniform of our nation are drawing a line in the sand. And they’re saying in our defense ..“to get to my country you’ll have to go over me … and you’re not going over me ..!!” Here’s an opportunity to say thank you to one of those heroes. An opportunity to be a blessing …!!!

And here’s how it works ….!! Each week, via email, you’ll receive the name and address of an active duty military man or woman now serving in Iraq, Afghanistan or — in the case of the Navy — on the high seas in support of the men and women on the ground. (Addresses courtesy of: http://www.thankyousoldier.com) Simply send a note or postcard to the address you receive ..! That’s all … one card or note of appreciation each week.

Make it a hobby, but remember its a ministry ..!! We spend countless hours and many spend hundreds of dollars on hobbies. This new “hobby” takes “5 minutes per week and the cost …??? One First Class stamp …!” And its more than a hobby ..!! Your note, saying someone cares, will minister God’s love to a man or woman far from home, who day to day wonders if they’ll ever see home again. My Lord, how blessed will you be every time you seal an envelope that carries your message …. “someone back home cares what you’re doing and we are so very grateful.”

To sign up, simply send an email to: letters@thankyousoldier.com
