There's a website for sending mail/ care package items for overseas soldiers, particularly those who are not getting much mail.

Quote from the site:

"To all whom this may concern,
I would personally like to thank all of those who have recently contributed their time and efforts in what I believe to be an awe-inspiring and frankly quite dramatic display of support from the home-front. The correspondence and care packages have been coming in at an overwhelming and nearly monumental pace. The "Any Soldier" campaign has seen tears from some, given hope to most, and has been inspirational to us all. Your relentless support has provided the simple reminder that any one of us would proudly die for a grateful nation in our ongoing fight against terrorism."

I read most all posts, comment on a few and this one brought to mind some time was just 12 and was watching tv with me on a snow day home from school...on the Today Show they were talking about sending letters to service men/women who were without familys...i thought it would be a cool thing for my son to do...and so we sat down and wrote a long letter about our little corner of the world here in ne mo......(this was during Desert Storm) no time we had a return letter from a young girl, age 19..she and my son soon became pen pals....when her stint was up she came here to spend some time...well, that was many years ago...and she was on the phone with cv during difficult times in high school, first jobs, girlfriend troubles and she was one of the first he called when he decided to join the marines.....she is married now...but we still stay in touch...her letters from that time, when read give a haunting tail of what life was like for a young lady in the middle of a vast sand box.....just wanted to share.....................h
