Letters from Home Project

Letters are always appreciated and an inexpensive way to tell a soldier that you are thankful for what they do and that somebody is thinking of them back home. This is an ideal activity for children. 

One of the most common requests from deployed personnel is to hear from Americans from “back home”.
How can you help?
Write a note, card or letter. Let the service member know who you are and where you are from.

Ideas of what to share:
  •  Thank them for their service.
  • Let them know that people stateside know their mission is not easy and that Americans care about them.
  • Perhaps tell them your connection in your family to a veteran or someone else presently serving our country.
  • What is going on in your community – city, school, neighborhood, living community?
  • Tell them something about yourself. What do you/did you do to make a living, your hobbies, and your family?
  • Share about a trip you have taken – maybe long ago or recently.
  • Whatever you care to share will be much appreciated as long as it is not political, offensive, or anything that could be perceived as negative about any religion.
  • Feel free to be creative in your cards and letters!
