Write A Letter To Our Soldiers

I think that this is the very least we can do, to show support and make this difficult time easier for our men and women in Iraq (and elsewhere overseas).

Last week my mom came home with the address for her co-worker's son who is currently overseas. He is in the Navy, and right now his mother has no idea if he is in Iraq, or elsewhere. My mom gave me the address because she knew I could reach a lot of people through this board. So if you would like to send a card or letter to him, please PM or email me at lemonangel92@hotmail.com and I will give you his address. (Cards or letters only, please- I think the Pentagon restricted care packages a few weeks ago.)

This is my way of asking you to write one person I know, but maybe this will inspire you to seek out ways to write to other soliders. Let them know we are there, appreciating all that they are fighting for.


Thanks in advance, guys.

Great Idea!!!

One of my supervisors is currently over there, and he sent the names of a number of soliders that have no one back home to write to. They posted the list at work and I sent some letters out yesterday. Even the local 3rd grade class is sending them all letters

The site gives you the name of an individual member of the armed forces - you can pray for someone by name.

The joy of specific prayer is that you can see specific answers - even if you do not know the individual.

I was just thinking about how jesus teached us to pray..

"yor father knows what you need before you beg him, that's why you should pray like this...

Quote:
Bible / Methiew
Our Father, who art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name,
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day, our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever.

Amen

Bumpty bump.

Also, if you want to send a message of support to other soldiers too, check out http://anyservicemember.navy.mil to send a short e-mail to an (I guess) randomly selected serviceperson who'd like to get some kind words.

My posting was just for the old thread, of course i think it's nice if you write letters or postcards to soldiers.
So my post was just a response for the prayer requests
