April OWH

My shipment for April to go to our troops.  Off to write my Anyhero mail.  I have some company coming to visit this weekend and I hope they will write some letters also.  I'm going to wait to put the package out so if anyone wants to write letters and get to me by Monday, April 14 that would be wonderful.  If you are going to send some letters my way just give me a heads up and I will wait to put the package in the mail.  I need to have my package in the mail no later than April 21 since I have some Father's Day cards and they have a due date.  Thank you.

May Is Military Appreciation Month

Our service members of all branches are our HEROES. They give of themselves day after day, month after month, year after year…and deployment after deployment. Many give the ultimate sacrifice of their very lives. And we owe them all a debt of gratitude.

How can we ever begin to repay that debt?

Many Americans have already forgotten our service members. When they heard 2014 is to be the end of the war in Afghanistan, they assumed that meant January 1 – not realizing we STILL have heroes serving and deploying there on an ongoing basis all year. The media barely touches the topic of our troops’ involvement in the Middle East, or anywhere else for that matter. But if you ask the average person, they’ll tell you they do support our heroes. They just need an invitation and a simple way they can show that support.
Here at OWH, we have a vision to provide those opportunities: We want to utilize the special significance of Military Appreciation Month to generate EXTRA support for our nation’s heroes! May is a great time to dovetail with the media coverage that grows during May every year, and invite our communities to join us in providing a tidal wave of encouragement for our service members! This will be in the form of AnyHero letters (letters written TO our heroes) and donations to cover the shipping cost of all of this wonderful mail!

Great Picture

Hi All,

Just wanted to post this picture which I received today from a Major serving our country.  It shows a solider going through a box of Operation Write Home cards to write home to his family.  Maybe one of my cards are hiding in one of the boxes and he'll pick that one!

March OWH

Here are my cards for the March mailing for OWH.  Now I need to just write some Anyhero letters to include and I will be able to drop them off in the mail. 


Remember everyone loves comments and I'm no exception.

It's A Bird, It's A Plane

No I was right the first time - it's a bird, an Angry Bird.

He even has a tail on the back side
