My Soldier

Mysoldier0_1

Mysoldier1 My Soldier is a program that puts politics aside and lets U.S. soldiers know that someone back home cares.  When a person enrolls in the My Soldier program, they agree to adopt a soldier.  They receive a “starter kit” containing guidelines for letter writing and care package preparation, a red My Soldier bracelet, and a specially designed My Soldier baseball hat to include with the first letter they send to their deployed United States Armed Serviceperson.  The first letter/care package they send is addressed to their soldier's platoon contact who then distributes it to their soldier.  The soldier then replies and direct correspondence begins (about 80% of soldiers respond, but 100% appreciate getting the letters).  The program is free.  To sign up, click the link above.

Go read the rest. Now!
