Write a letter of support to a serviceman

When you fill out this form it will be sent securely to me. I will then send it to an airman, marine, sailor, or pilot in Iraq or Afghanistan. Some of the servicemen and women there receive no mail or support from the states at all, anything you write would be appreciated.

    • Dear service men and women
      I want you all to know how important you are to our freedom. You are doing a fantastic job and I am extremely gratefuyl to you for this. I know freedom isn’t free someone has to pay the ultimate sacrifice. As a child of veteran parents I know what you do is so important to this nation. As an American I am so proud and when you come home we will welcome you back with open arms. May God Bless each and everyone of you. Sincere gratitude and thanks. The word thank you will never be adequate in my life. Please stay as safe as you can and I hope one day we can say WELCOME HOME!

      Thank you for your service. I appreciate all that you have helped do to make our country a better, stronger nation. If it wasn’t for people like you are country would fail and be helpless. I understand how hard it can be to go away from almost everything you have and almost have a completely new life. You must have a lot of courage and desire! I thank you for all you have done for our country, keep up the good work!

    • Mary

      Dear USA troops,
      God bless each of your hearts. I can’t imagine what life would be like without you guys. Your dedication to protect and serve our country everyday is something nobody can live up to. I know it’s tough out there, but I have hope that it will be over soon and you’ll all be home safe. Every one of you is in my prayers, and I can’t express how thankful I am for your service.
      Stay safe,

    • Erin White

      Dear men and woman who are in the service,
      I can’t begin to tell you how thankful I am for your service to our country. It takes a lot of courage and strength to fight for our freedom. I can speak on behalf of America and say we are all proud for what you do everyday to protect our country. I hope someday every one of you will be welcomed back home safe and sound. God bless you all and thank you a thousand times for everything.

    • Emily

      Dear Soldier,
      Thank you so much for being and expressing the generous, caring, and brave person you truly are! You may think that one person might not make a difference, but it truly does. You are changing the way we live today positively, and saving many lives. I thank you so much for doing what you’re doing, and serving the country proudly and strongly. Keep up the good work! We love you all, and are very appreiative of your devotion to serving our country today! Thank you! :)

      Thank you for your sacrifice you make on a daily basis for all of us to live a better life. its a big sacrifice to be away from your loves ones for what you believe. may god bless and keep you all safe

  2. Darlene A. Lance

    My reason for writing this letter is to let YOU know how very thankful I am that YOU are the reason that I have MY FREEDOM here in the U.S.A. I also want to SALUTE YOU for your COURAGE, your DECISION to do this, the STAMINA to keep on going when you feel like you cannot take another step from exhaustion, being mentally tired and missing your LOVED ONES and FRIENDS. I am Eternally Grateful for YOU! With LOVE and FRIENDSHIP, Darlene Lance

  3. Ellis Leigh

    Thank you for your service. The members of the armed forces of the USA set the standard for the world. No other group of people exhibit what true sacrifice means, as do our service personnel. Keep up the good work, CYA, and come home as soon as you can.

  4. Stephanie

    HI! I think this is a great idea because i am actually writing an assignment just like this one in class. thank you for supporting our troops!

    I am a veteran and I’m seventy years old. I never thought I would be this old; it just happened. I prefer writing as a means of communications these days because nobody can see my gray hair, many wrinkles and be tempted to discount or disregard anything I have to say because of them.

    Hopefully, my words will mean something to you; from me to you, they are sincere.

    For whatever reason or circumstance, you find yourself in harm’s way and are serving as an extension of your country’s foreign policy. I believe there is evil in the world and no amount of diplomacy or encouragement to, as the prophet Isaiah said, “come, let us reason together” will work. Evil must be defeated by whatever means so the rest of the world can be safer.

    Not everyone believes the way I do. That’s part of true freedom. But, you are doing what I think is right and necessary. Consequently, you are my heroes and I thank you.

    God bless you, stay safe and I hope you can come home soon.

  7. Arlene Pierce

    My patients at the nursing home I work at wouldl like to correpond with a few servideman. Could you please email at least 3 addresses of any branch of service to accomplish this task.


  8. Jaimie Lawrence

    Thank you!! From the bottom of my heart! I appreciate your courage, bravery and willingness to put yourself in harms way…so that my family can hang out and go to the park…walk to school..ride our horse..ride motorcross…walk the dogs…go to the movies…go out to dinner…get on an airplane…travel to see family…and live in our warm and toasty house – with running water and toilets, a/c, forced air, refrigerator…with beer! I find it interesting that serving in the military does not hold as much status in the public as say a doctor, teacher, fire fighter, policeman…and yet, those are some of the jobs servicemen/women hold in our military…I have a feeling that is changing and for the better…times are tough her for most of us…although it does not compare to willingly giving up all of the comforts of home to fight for our freedom….and the comforts of home…Thank you for believing in our system of government and holding our freedom in your hands…I am eternally grateful!

    How are you; I hope at this writing that you are well, as safe as you can possibly be. My name is Orashi, however my nickname is Phyl short for Phyllis.

    I am an adult living in a suburb in California, near the state capital of Sacramento. I am overjoyed to be able to write to you and say ‘thank you’ and although we may never meet face to face, allow me to say that I hope that in the end, this was all worth it.

    I prefer writing as a means of communication these days because I write much better at times from the heart then I do in person, and pplus since you aren’t physically availble for me to shake your hand, I wanted to at leaat share my thoughts.

    Hopefully, my words will mean something to you; from me to you, they are sincere. For whatever reason or circumstance, you find yourself in harm’s way and are serving as an extension of your country’s foreign policy. I believe there is and will always be evil forces in the world and others who for whatever reason cannot appreciate all that we have because they may not have it. There is no amount of diplomacy or encouragement to, as the prophet Isaiah said, “come, let us reason together” that will work for all of us. There will always be those who for whatever reason just don’t want to be on friendly terms for any reason. Evil must be defeated by whatever means so the rest of the world can be safer. That included all on this world that we all enjoy. Because not everyone believes as I do, true freedom is not a benefit enjoyed by everyone in this world. Its hard to understand why, but with history I can see why in some places that might not be possible. Mayhem, greed, evilness, all of the above. With the world in the current situation now with total unrest and the economy out the window, I wonder if anyone really knows why it is and what exactly we are fighting for? But true freedom is sometimes worth the fight if what it brings is to be enjoyed by the masses.

    What you are doing is what I think and believe is right and necessary. Consequently, you are my heroe(s) and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. God bless you, stay safe and I hope you can come home soon.

  10. Theresa Bandeira


    I can’t express my thanks enough for the job you do everyday to keep us safe and protected. It is not an easy job and often not appreciated enough.

    God Bless and Keep You.

    I will pray for your safe return.

  11. Orashi/Phyllis


    Again we meet again primarily for me to say thank you for your continued service. I hope you know that although today marks the day to honor those on the battlefield for us and our country that I personally want to thank you for your daily service to protect us from harms way. I may never get the oppotunity to meet any or all of you but I just wanted to say thank you again, and to say I hope and pray that your are one day home with your family and friends.

    Protecting me and mine from harms way is a difficult and stressful job, and I want you to know that I will never be able to repay you for the years, time and service you have put in for me and my family. Hppy Memorial Day!

  12. There are times, I suppose, when we all feel alone… but, one should never feel alone serving one’s country.

    There is nothing more substantive than receiving a note or a card when one most needs it. It is like hearing a voice in the darkness. I should like to be one such voice in the darkness – a friend, if you will, at a time most needed.

  13. Phyllis

    To whom it may concern:

    Just a note of continued thanks for all of the hard work, lost hours of sleep, bad surroundings, and extrmeme heat that you are being subject to. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for servicing and protecting me from harms way. I want to remind you that there are many here in the US who will never be able to thank you enough for all of the hard work you and your Unit have put in. It means alot of me that you are there doing this to protect so many and although I may never meet you or be able to thanks you personally know iin my heart that you are appreciated. In a million years I never anticipated that our country would ever get back into war, but since we have I know that it has been a difficult assignment. If there is anything that can be done to reciprocate other than continued prayer, please do not hestiate to ask. If I can do it, I will.

    I also would like to say that you have a great support in the President these days with President Barack Obama and his Administration. I hope that if you need anything, that you do not hesitate to contact him and ask and I know he will do what he can to get what you need.

    I pray for your continued safety and support in these trying times. We support you and your Unit through all of your hard times. Until we meet again,

  14. To any Serviceperson in need of a little extra support from back home. Here I am, I sit on my porch and gaze across the corn fields of Iowa and I think of you and how all of this would be gone if not for you. I see my home, green grass and a peacful place. Thank you so much for taking care of me and my family. If you need me here I am..

  15. Hello,

    This year at our family XMAS gathering, I would love to hand out the addresses of service men/gals who are serving for our country in Iraq or Afghanistan. It would show the true meaning of XMAS is we can take the time to communicate with someone who has sacrificed his time/family/life to protect us so we can enjoy everything that we take for granted.

    Please let me know if this is possible.


  16. suz

    To all the service personnel. I am sure being away from home and your loved ones is difficult at anytime but more so during the festive season. Know that you are in thoughts and prayers, whoever and where ever you are. Your call to serve in whatever capacitiy is greatly appreciated. Thankyou does not seem enough to express the gratitude that you deserve. God Bless you all.
    Luv Suz

  17. Kate Weglikowski

    Hello to all the wonderful men and women serving our country. Words can not express my profound gratitude for all the hard work and dedication you give the country. Two of my cousins served, so all of you have a special place in my heart. I hope you all are safe and will someday return home.

    I realize that the holidays must be lonely. Know that my family and me are praying for you. I wish you a Happy and healthy New Year! Keep in touch.


  18. jordan dossett

    I am looking for a service person, any branch interested in mindfulness and Buddhism to corrospond with. I’m happy to send letters to just about anyone who wants to exchange. pls feel free to email me.

  19. JoAnn Gates

    I am looking for a way to let our service persons know that they are thought about and appreciated. I know that we have many soldiers who face everyday with no letters to look forward to or emails from anyone. If I can help give a little bit of humor, maybe a shoulder or I thought of you today to someone out there, who otherwise faces another day far away and alone. Then please give someone my email addy. Thank You and God Bless

  20. Shannon Fant

    I would like to know if anyone might know how I can go about sending our troops care packages? I know that there are certain things that they would love to enjoy while they are over there fighting for our freedom! please let me know what I can do or where to go to find that info out.

    Dear Serviceman or woman,
    We want to thank you for our freedom. First, we want to thank you for fighting the many battles that you have fought! Next, we know you are very brave!

  23. Beth Castella

    Please email me as I would like to snail mail/email a service man/woman who doesn’t receive mail. I truly appreciate the sacrific you are all doing and want you to know that by getting mail at mail call.

  24. Beth Castella

    I would like to email/snail mail a service man/woman who does not receive mail. It is heartbreaking to learn that there are those men and women who serve so faithfully do not receive mail at mail call.

    I would like to email/snail mail a service man or woman who does not receive mail. It is heartbreaking to learn that those who serve so faithfully do not receive mail at mail call.

  26. Linda Richards

    My 90 year old mother-in-law would like to send handwritten letters to servicemen who need to be encouraged. Are you able to send several names/addresses? Please let me know and thank you!

  27. I am writing this letter today to say”Thank You” to all the service men and women risking their lives to keep myself and my family safe. I would like to handwrite any service man or women who does not receive mail.( Because the computer is not my friend.) So please send me names and address. Thank You.

  28. ilona szeifert

    Dear Serviceperson,

    I want to say “Thank You” from the bottom of my heart for your service to our country. We would not be enjoying our freedom if not for you. We realize that you have given up much to be in service. I want you to know that friends, family and I are thinking of and praying for you. May God Bless you and keep you safe until the day that you return home.

  29. shirley boyd

    I would like to correspond with you and fill a little of your loneliness with a good letter. I appreciate your spending your life in the service for our freedom for our country. God be with you and keep you safe and may He bring you back home safely.

  30. Eileen

    Dear gentleman or gentlewoman who is standing up for my freedom,

    I cannot express my gratitude for what you are doing for me and my children and grandchildren. Freedom is never free. It costs so very much. And you are paying part of that price. You suffer in ways most people cannot imagine. But God understands. I pray regularly that God will bring you home safely, with your mission accomplished, and with the foreign country in which you are serving more open to the spread of the good news of Jesus.

  31. Alexis

    Just wanted to say thanks to all servicepeople that put themselves in harms way for us. :)

  32. Cindy Ward

    Thank YOU Thank YOU Thank YOU!!! Without your personal sacriface none of us would have our Freedom. There are not words enough to express my heartfelt Thanks to you & your fellow servicemen for what you are doing for us. May God bless each & everyone of you. If I had addresses I would personally write letters, of Graditude, Love & Hope to you. Thank you just isn’t enough.

  33. Jennifer

    Thank you for allowing me my freedom by doing all that you do and sacrificing everything in your life to give me that freedom. You are greetly appreciated and my prayers are with you.

  34. Angela Lobreto

    It is an honor to have you read this brief note of thanks from a lady in northern Oklahoma who is thankful you signed up in support of freedoms that Americans enjoy. You may not think your work is important, but every spoke in the wheel provides support that allows it to bear its weight and turn smoothly. What you think are small deeds work together with others to provide important service to your country. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  35. marilyn

    Hello, I have been wanting to do this since the war began. However will try this site as a few have failed to get to the right place. I am a 61 yr old woman who lives in Australia, i am a nurseand have been since 17 yrs of age. I have no children and would like to write to any lonely soldiers over there in Afghanastan. Doesn’t matter what age, just want to communicate with the lonely guys there, as know what my brother went through on 5 tours to Vietnam. He was Navy. I live my live on a 10acre block west of Brisbane with my animals, I want to say how much we appreciate what you are all doing for the free world. I know the risks you take and dont ever forget that we are behind you 100% every day. We all appreciate what you do to make this world a safer place. We also cannot even know what you endure every day over there, but can only hope and pray for your safe return home. If anyone would like to write to me at my e-mail address, you are welcome, many thanks, Marilyn from down under.

  36. Nona Golden

    As my mom always told me in all the years I was growing up (I’m not 57), you and many more like you have not given your dad and all of the many servicemen fighting for our country the honor and support that they well deserve! And she was so right! We haven’t. Not in a million years; but TODAY, I want to say just how very proud I am to live in a country where people like you are fighting for our continued freedom! What an honor and privilege it is to have you, along with so many others, standing up for the U.S.A.!!!!! I am very thankful for your bravery and ultimate sacrifice that you and your family have made for this country – “the land of the free and the home of the brave”! May God richly bless you and your family and keep you protected on this Memorial Day, as well as all the days ahead as you continue to serve this country of ours, of which we should all be proud!

  37. Barbara Fugate

    God Bless you all for all that you do. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. It’s an extreme sacrifice to serve over there in the heat and dangerous conditions. I pray that you all may return home safe and be with your loved ones. For those of you that have no one to return to, please know that we are all thinking of you and hope that you make it back safe and find that special someone. My son served in the Navy in the Persian Gulf and I worried all the time. I would be more than happy to communicate with anyone. I’m 67 but get along well with younger people. Still a kid at heart. Please know that we appreciate all that you do. We know how hard it is to be deprived of sleep and scared of not making it home. May God keep you safe and bring you home soon. I would love to correspond with anyone that’s interested.

  38. Ashley Zamorano

    This letter is written by my 9 year old daughter. She was watching videos of daddies and mommies returning home to their families and was filled with emotion and tears! In her own words she wanted to express her gratitude for our troops! Here is her letter:

    Dear Soldiers of The United States of America,
    I appreciate that you all fight for our country
    To protect us and for our freedom. I feel sad for the families that have lost loved ones! But I know that whatever happens, you will always be with them. And you will come back home to them.

    Thank You for all you do
    Your Friend

    Service Men and Women,
    I would like to thank you for your courage and love for our country, and for courageously fighting for our freedom. Not many people recognize the danger and harm that soldiers have to go through in order to help this country. Everyone should thank our soldiers for the courage they have to fight for out freedom. Thank you

  43. alliieee

    Dear Soldiers.
    Thank you so much for everything you do for our country. I really appreciate the hard work and dedication. Its really impressive how you risk your lives for the people of our nation. You should be very proud of yourselves.

  45. Arianna Ruiz

  46. Morgan

    Dear Soldiers,

    I attend a private school, where my freedom of religion is still strongly intact. We pray over the loudspeaker, and before classes. Though not everyone is of my faith, every day the freedom to express my faith is appreciate and taken advantage of because of your services. This Thanksgiving, I stop and give thanks to the soldiers who made it possible for me to freely pray and worship in my school. Thank you for risking your lives for these every day freedoms. America is indebted to you.

  47. Natalie

    Dear Servicemen and Servicewomen,
    I just want to truly thank you for all that you do both seen and unseen. The job you undertake with courage affects our lives in many ways. We feel safer in our homes, schools, and workplaces because of your dedication. We know you sacrifice so much personally and financially for our freedom, and we just want you to know we genuinely support you and pray for you.Thank You and God Bless!

  48. Heather Michael

    Dear all servicemen and women,
    Thank you so much for serving our country. It is a blessing to live in this country because all of those who are brave enough to give everything up and go to forein lands and fight for the freedom America has. Our gratitude cannot be expressed in enough words. We love you and miss you.
    With much gratitude,
    Heather Michael

  49. Amy

    My Dear American Soldier:
    America all began with those willing to break the mold of the mother country; Britain. It is because of the Fathers of our nation that were bold enough to stand against the crowd that we have the freedoms that we have today. It is because of you today that we have maintained the freedoms that they fought so diligently for. It is because of the personal sacrifices you have made that I have the ability to pray in a public setting, to speak my mind, and to vote for my leaders. It is because of the life you chose to live, that I still have these freedoms. It is because you decided that you too, wanted to break the mold, that I can live in a country who believes I have the right to be heard. It is because of you who laid your personal wants aside, to give us the freedoms many of us take for granted. Thank you for exchanging your quiet life for a dangerous one to keep me out of harm’s way. I admire your courage and self-sacrifice. You truly are an inspiration.
    Joshua 1:9-
    “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”

    With Love, Thanks, and Admiration,

  50. Vitaliy

    Dear Serviceman or Servicewoman
    I’m glad for your dedication and courage to support our country. It means a lot to me. I’m glad that America is not going to a communistic way. I appreciate that I can sleep at night safely. I’m thankful for your service May God Bless!

  51. Markeeta

    Dear American Soldier,
    Both of my uncles where in the service, so not only do I have a special appreciation for the flag, what it stands for, and those who fight to protect those freedoms, but i also want all service members to know how grateful I am. I know it must be hard to be away from your families when you would rather be at home, but you have no idea how much it means to me that you made that decision and I’m very sure you families love and miss you. I think it is a noble and brave thing to risk your life for something you believe in. I find it peaceful to know that someone out there is fighting for these same freedoms that we hold so dear in this country. I may not know you on a personal level, but I know you care for your country and your family and that is why you do what you do. I pray daily for you and your families and that you will be able to come home soon. I pray that one day this war will end soon, but until it does I pray that you all stay safe and sound. I know my thanks pales in comparison to what you do for us every day. I really wanted you to know the depths of my gratitude, so thank you very much again and I hope you have a very happy holiday.

    God Bless,

  52. Ryan

    Dear Servicemen,
    I would like to thank all of you for protecting our country.
    I know it takes a lot off guts and will to fight every day knowing the risks of injury or death. So thank you for the freedom and protection we have today.
    Ryan (Buhbumpa)

  53. Dear Servicemember,
    Thank you so much for serving our country! I really appreciate the sacrifice you are making, especially at this time of year.
    I am 12 years old and am in 7th grade. I go to a private Christian school in New York state. I love playing basketball and soccer. I also like to sing.
    Our country is blessed to have so many people who are willing to serve their country. I think America is the best place to live. One of my best friend’s dad served in Iraq and then in Afghanistan. I got to see his pictures from when he was there.
    Thank you again so much!


  54. Jon Solow

    Dear Soldiers,
    Thank you so much for fighting for us. We enjoy the freedoms we do today because of your sacrifice. Everyday you risk your lives for the freedoms we enjoy today. Without you, we would not live in the America we do today. Thank you, and Merry Christmas.

    I would like to write on a routine basis to one or maybe two of our service men or women in the heavy combat areas – or wherever you think help is needed the most.

    Can you give me any proof that the servicemen actually get the letters?

    Thank you,

    Hello Hickingmiles! We thank you for your service to this country and your service will never be forgotten. Hicking miles is a unique name to the thousands of miles you have traved during this war in support of protecting me and so many others in the US. From the bottom on my heart I say thank you sir for your true sacrifice. I am praying that you are doing well, or at least as well as can be expected in your circumstance, I pray and hope that you get back home often to see those you love and who love you. Respect for me is always earned and I have to say that for a person to join the military is such a tre selfless act and you are commented for your believe in man and country. While I have never served in the military due to having Lupus as a child, I now have no signs of that autoimmune problem and often wish that I could do something. Service is no longer possible for me, but thank you and others is, so wishing you continued health, and safety. Look out for you and those near you during these perilous times but know here in the US you are held high for your service.



  68. I am so thankful to you for protecting us.

  69. Debbie

    I hope that this short note will remind you that there is someone praying for your safety and well-being today. I hope that you can close your eyes for a moment and imagine receiving a large friendly hug and the words “Thank you” for your service and sacrifice in your ears.

    You are so special to me! You are doing what only a fraction of Americans can or will do. Please be reminded of that today! Thank you for your service. I hope your return home soon! God bless you!

    Just another note of my sincere thanks and appreciation for all that you all are doing and have done to protect this country. Each year I think as this holiday comes up each November 11, how very important each of you are to this country and while I am sure that you know want to share with you yet again how thankful I am to each of you men and women; I know that my simple thank you will never been near enough for you who have sacrificed so very much to protect me and my family from coast to coast here in the US. I wish you safe return from your tear of duty, and know that why I may never meet each and everyone that you know again this year how very thankful your sacrifice really means to me.

    Your individual service means so much for me; I am so grateful to you. I WIsh You All Happy Vetrens Day for your service. My freedom has never been free, but I thank you for your sacrifice; my father, his father before him, my uncles. cousins are all in the military and each time we fly to visit from one coast to the next that is all we talk about is how wonderful our As a child of vlives are because of all of you and to the families of this nation. Until this time next year, please take care of yourself and those of the soldier both in front and in back of you on the roads in foreign lands. God Bless You!

    This is a first for me but I want you to know how important the work you do is. I worked for the Civil Service (Navy) for 27 years & retired in 2010. I’d like to hear about you & what you do or how you are doing.

    • Phyllis Venktaya

      Hello Hiking miles, 27 years I am sure have been twenty seven long years full of dedication and service for our country. I just want to sincerely thank you for your long service to this country and others like me. I am a daughter of a military person and I know the years in other countries doing his job, as you have with yours. The dedication, compassion, and courage demonstrated by you and your fellow soldiers I respect, and admire and while I know saying the words “Thank you” are not enough for all of your time, service, energy and heart shown and given your service will never be forgotten. Wishing you much continued success as you move further into new opportunities as these wars end.  You are a hero for the many years of service; I am so many others give our thanks.

      Best regards sir, Phyllis

  78. Sarah

    I am not sending this to anyone specific just to every man and woman in the service. No one could ever know the sacrifices you guys make. Not only do you go through physical pain, but emotional too and not anyone can become a good soldier. You guys are one of a kind and quit frankly kickass in my book:). My step dad tells me all these stories about his time in the army and it just brings me to tears. I appreciate your work to a fault. Hearing some service men and women do
    not recieve any letters or emails breaks my
    heart. You guys deserve more than just
    letters and emails though. It really grinds on
    my nerves when people complain about
    their jobs and how they have to work on
    holidays! Men And women are facing more
    than 8 hours of work on a damn holiday, I
    wish some people would just be thankful for
    your work and dedication to this country.
    We would all be lost without you guys. You
    have family and friends here waiting for you
    to come back safe, I wish you the best of

    who are wishing for blogging.

  83. Many of these services know that their customers are far
    too busy with their lives and work to be done to prevent sewage Online Backup Services.
    So far this is the whole reason you’re trying to determine the best online backup services medium. For the most part, these accidents could have been bad,” said Andy Rubin, VP engineering at Google. Often sewage and drain back ups can be devastating to see their hard earned profits crumble with their computing systems. A few weeks before he was with the Oakland Raiders to be the go-ahead score.

  86. Michelle

    Dear friend, I’m writing a different letter to you. I’m a divorced mother of three with grown children both boys are in the military one being adopted and very proud of them. I also use to date a military man. When I think of you out there whether its overseas or back in the states I try to put myself with you, I wonder what kinda meal you’re eating tonight, are you with company or alone? I wonder if you are able to have shelter or are you stuck in the middle of no where and can’t even brush your teeth with running water. Are you too cold are you too warm? I imagine a lot of senarios and wonder if we really are taking care of our military as well as they need to be.Sometime I lay down at night in my comfortable pajamas and wonder do you even get to change or do simple things as take off your boots and gear. With some stories I’ve heard from my ex and my son I ‘be gathered a lot of information on how some things go. I feel for everyone of you and hope that if you ever feel like you can’t take it anymore try to place yourself at home In your bed,warm/cool,comfortable having shower and laboratory necessities available with warm home cooked meals and even if you don’t have someone to think of when you do come back home just remember I will be thinking of you, be safe and think one happy thought a day. I welcome your emails :)

  87. Michelle

    I hope you can have a nice Thanksgiving

    Well first I should note that I’m gay/bisexual and even in this day and age I figure it’s best to get that out of the way. I don’t care if the guy I’m writing to is straight or gay either. I’m a survivor of P.T.S.D so I figure I have a view point that at some point might come in helpful if necessary. I have a kind heart and an ability to move across the page and make words express feeling across the barrier of time and distance . I would just would like to make a friend free of the pressure about dating and looking for love. Would like to make a difference to someone who has no one. I know the importance of just being able to look forward to hearing from someone, sometimes I know it can mean so much to someone.

  101. Elphin Mcguinness

    I’d love to send all the troops my appreciation, my relatives and my father were all in the military and nothing touches my heart more than when I think of these men and woman and what they do every day.
    We love you all
    My dad would have wanted his daughter to help in anyway. If someone would let me know how to right an actual letter I will gladly, however the form is not coming up properly
    We love you Troopers

  106. Lewis Brown

    Hi There,
    So whilst browsing the web I came across an amazing website called supportthetroops.wordpress.com and I felt obliged to comment, the fact is I am in actual fact not American but British however it is my understanding that this year NATO is drawing down troops from Afghanistan and the Brits are leaving combat roles all together (I am not sure about the US). However to me nationality means nothing, the Brits and Yanks have been serving side by side in almost all major conflicts that have recently occured, noteably in Iraq and Afghanistan. So I would personally like to take this time to thank you, whoever you might be, for serving one of the greatest nations on earth and fighting along side another great nation, my great nation. The casualties for both our two countries have been heavy but regardless you all push on through, Sir/Madame I thank you, you are a true hero. I hope I one day I have the privelige of fighting along side a member of the United States Armed Forces.

    Yours Truly,
    Lewis Brown, 16, Surrey, The United Kingdom

    I would like to become a pen pal for a service man. I would appreciate an address or email. I would prefer someone who normally doesn’t get any mail so that one more person will have someone to correspond with. Finally I would prefer a marine but I would take anyone. This is an amazing thing you have set up! :)


  111. If you want to build teamwork, you will definitely want
    to practice together, of course. So strap on all your paintball load and gear up
    those paintball guns! If” scenarios, and more, work on offensive and defensive strategies, code words, “what-.

    Study from the opposition in addition to your own teammates.
    Closely discover other paintball gamers to develop new and succeeding methods for future game titles.
    Does the opposing team speak a lot more than your group does?
    Do they appear to be much more arranged? Paying
    attention to the way your adversaries come together will help enhance your team’s functionality.
    Take a look at your opponents paintball gear and see if
    your team is lacking in that area. This may tremendously effect your gameplay

    I would like to be a oen pal for a service man . I live in Tennessee so maybe there’s a man from my state :)
