How to Include Deployed Troops on Your Holiday Card List
Because of the spread of COVID-19, we have all experienced what it feels like to be separated from those we love. But deployed service members are living those emotions every day.
One thing rings true for all wounded warriors who have been separated from family to serve their country: Receiving a letter from home is the most uplifting feeling a deployed troop can get. It serves as a reminder that they are loved and appreciated for their service and sacrifice — that they are not alone in spirit.
As you prepare your holiday card list, consider sending one or more to deployed servicemembers. Below is a list of some — but most definitely not all — organizations dedicated to sharing letters, cards, and even care packages with those deployed.
