A few years ago when Brandon was deployed to Iraq I made a “mail call request” and it was so awesome to hear about all cards he received. I wanted to do it again this year.
I’ve been better about correspondence this time around (read: I sent him a birthday card a couple months ago). Oh, and I sent him a cupcake! (It was 2 weeks old by the time he got it, and he ate every bit!) But I’m still so bad at this!
So. My request:
As you are dropping beautiful holiday cards or family newsletters in the mail, would you address one to him??? All you have to do is put a stamp on it and drop it in the mailbox (-no need to go to the post office).
He and his fellow soldiers have everything they need – lots of care packages, Girl Scout cookies, movies, socks, etc.
But I would love for him to feel thought of and remembered this Christmas. Believe me, he loves this stuff. He hasn’t lived in his hometown since he was eighteen, and he still loves to read the town’s 4-page newspaper and every Sunday church bulletin.
Help a sista out?
