recently i signed up to adopt a solider. it kinda happened on a whim as i was looking into a few things online but since a.s been home, i've really missed supporting the soldiers overseas. that said, when i stumbled upon this website, i thought this would be a fantastic way to continue to show our appreciation. i signed up, received our adopted soldiers profile and was asked to begin writing letters immediately.
writing letters to complete strangers isn't as easy as it sounds. you have to wonder how much information to pass along and what they would be interested to hear. this brought me back to my pen pal days. minus the barrage of questions and the new pals that changed as often as my grade. so i wrote and the words came, as they always do.
and yes, this card was created by yours truly.
