Write or Adopt a Soldier program started by student/soldier at Manhattanville College
My Soldier is a program that puts politics aside and lets U.S. soldiers know that someone back home cares. When a person enrolls in the My Soldier program, they agree to adopt a soldier. They receive a starter kit containing guidelines for letter writing and care package preparation, a red My Soldier bracelet, and a specially designed My Soldier baseball hat to include with the first letter they send to their deployed United States Armed Serviceperson. The first letter/care package they send is addressed to their soldier's platoon contact who then distributes it to their soldier. The soldier then replies and direct correspondence begins (about 80% of soldiers respond, but 100% appreciate getting the letters). The program is free. To sign up, click the link above.

Well, are you serious? I have no idea. But you can go to http://www.mville.edu/mysoldier/index.html to connect with any soldier via that pen pal program.
