November is Here - Veterans Day is right around the corner.
It only takes a few minutes to write a letter to the kids and share a story of why you served.
If you aren't a Veteran then share your thoughts on why it is important to remember our Veterans on Veterans Day.
It's an opportunity for us to support our troops, our country and show appreciations for our local veterans. It's another way to counter the Anti-Iraq campaign propaganda. Would you like to help? Are there any VetsCoR folks on the Left Coast? We have a school project that everyone can help with too, no matter where you live. See the end of this post for details.
Three Northern California events have been scheduled and we need help with each:
Veterans in School - How you can help if you're not close enough to participate directly. If you are a veteran, share a story of your own with the children. If you have family serving in the military, tell them why it's important that we all support them. Everyone can thank them for having this special event. Keep in mind that there are elementary school kids.
Help us by passing this message around to other Veteran's groups. I have introduced VetsCoR and FreeperFoxhole to a number of school teachers. These living history lessons go a long way to inspire patriotism in our youth. Lets see if we can rally America and give these youngsters enough to read for may weeks and months ahead. If we can, we'll help spread it to other schools as well.
For those of you who don't know, Troop Fan Mail is an organization that sends cards and letters to our troops ALL OVER THE WORLD. They are gearing up for their Christmas mailing and everything has to be sent to them before Thanksgiving. This organization coordinates delivery with the USO, so the troops currently serving in Iraq will also receive letters and cards. The guys and girls serving in other countries REALLY appreciate hearing from people back home.
It's simple to participate. Just write letters, notes, or cards and put them in envelopes. DO NOT SEAL the envelopes, just tuck in the flaps. Also do not put any postage on the letters. Put your return address in the upper left corner and this address on the envelope: Troop Fan Mail Troop Fan Mail
