Operation Gratitude!

Operation Gratitude strives to include several personal letters in every package that they send. Help ensure that a Soldier, Sailor, Marine or Airman knows that you are thinking of them by writing cards or letters. It will only take 5 minutes out of your day to write a letter, but it will bring joy to our troops that will last a lifetime.

What to Write About: Keep your message upbeat and positive Be thankful ~~ share a little bit of yourself Ask questions; however, do not discuss death or killing Avoid politics completely and religion in excess It’s all about appreciation and respectAsk yourself: “Will this letter bring a smile to someone’s face?”More Helpful Information Sample salutations: Dear Hero, Dear Brave One Include your own mail or email so recipients can choose to reply No stamps or envelopes are needed Hand Written letters or cards are most appreciated. All letters will be screened—please do not seal envelopesSend multiple letters together in one large mailing envelope or box If you do not receive a reply, do not be discouraged. Remember: Our troops are busy!
Operation Gratitude accepts letters all year. Email
