Sometime ago with the holidays around the corner, some of you were curious on ways to adopt a serviceman or woman serving either here or overseas. From what I understood the Department of Defense stopped forwarding parcels and mail from anonymous parties about the time of the Anthrax attacks to the U.S. Government. I did however keep my ears and eyes open and I think I might have something that you all might be interested in, from the website... http://anyservicemember.navy.mil/ Send a special holiday message to our men and women in the military defending American freedom worldwide. Since 1967, when Sgt. Billy Thompson wrote Abigail Van Buren and mentioned that a wonderful Christmas present to our armed forces would be "just a letter from home," American citizens have been sending holiday wishes to servicemen and women stationed overseas every holiday season. Dubbed "Operation Dear Abby," the program has brought holiday joy to hundreds of thousands of U.S. military personnel deployed away from home. Concerns about mail delivery have prompted the military to suspend this year's letter-writing campaign. However, the United States Department of the Navy's LifeLines2000 Services Network in association with SPAWAR SCC-NCR is providing this private and secure online resource that will allow you to send a Sailor, Marine, Soldier, Airman or Coast Guardsman a holiday greeting. Thank you, & God Bless America!
