    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...
    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!
