The children and I would like to know if there is a place to send mail to those serving overseas who might not get mail? I thought you ladies would be the best to answer this question.

Thanks so much!
Absinthe

PS ~ We were thinking something similar to what we did for Bear, with cards and the video, if that can be possible, I don't know how many people may have access to DVD players etc.

Hi Amanda,

I can check into it and let you know. We do have a friend that has another platoon leaving very soon. Also the squadron I worked for in Vilseck is set to deploy to Afghanistan in the very near future. I know many of the younger Soldiers are single and would love to receive anything at all. I can get a hold of one of our friends and find out if it is doable.

Thank you so much for all that you do

Big Hugs,

Shawnee

Hi Shawnee!!! Thanks for looking into it. When I talked to the children about it, they got very excited and were jumping up and down about it Then of course the youngest, joined in, just because everyone else was. Though she doesn't really jump yet, it's more of a stumble of sorts LOL

Cool. Let me know about what you find out!

Hugs right back!
Amanda

Thanks for asking, Absinthe. I actually asked a soldier friend of mine and he recommended the following website: http://booksforsoldiers.com/

He made a request from there when he was deployed and said it was really nice to know that people he didn't even know cared enough to send him things he needed or wanted through that site.

Have you tried the anysoldier site yet? I just wish I could send them all a little something

We're trying to decide where to start.
