Everyone has been very generous with their comics and money in helping us send care packages to soldiers serving in Afghanistan (and Iraq!) But one thing I think our servicemen and women really appreciate are the notes from you. And, we don't get many of those.
If you haven't been able to donate comics, books, dvds, or cash, this is one thing you can do for free that would mean a lot. If you're having a hard time figuring out what to say, start off by saying thank you. Then just write about yourself. Thanksgiving just passed, you could talk about what you did for the holiday, and what your plans for the upcoming holidays are. You may think it's weird to talk about yourself to someone you don't know, but honestly, the news of something real "back home" are the best gifts of all.
Please send any and all messages, even if they're short ones, to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll be sending out the latest shipment of cookies and comics (and paperbacks and dvds) this week. I'd like to include lots of email printouts. Don't let the men and women of B Company down!
