Pen Pals Needed !!! Thoughtful words for a wounded warrior


There’s no better way to show your appreciation to a wounded warriors than sharing some thoughtful words and let them know you are thankful for their sacrifices and that you wish them well. 
So gather your paper and pens, your kids and their crayons and bring some much needed smiles to those who are so far away from home while recuperating from injuries.  it’s really a great project for the family as well,  with all the hustle and bustle of the world we sometimes forget to take time to appreciate the ones we love,.. and we also sometimes forget to take time and thank those that choose to be away from their families in order to make our world safe to enjoy our families,..
With that being said,.. Time to get to work !!! Put a stamp on those homemade cards and letters and send them to,…

Soldiers_Reaching Out make a Real Difference
A Soldier wrote,.. "Once again, I appreciate your supporting these guys. If everyone would do that, the war would be a lot easier for soldiers in conflict zones."

This photo was taken by a soldier in Afghanistan of a helo rescue mission. The pilot is a PA National Gaurd guy who flies EMS choppers in civial life.

Now how many people on the planet you reckon could set the ass end of a chopper down on the roof top shack, on a steep mountain cliff, and hold it there while soldiers load wounded Men and ZWomen in the rear.

If this does not impress you,.. Nothing ever will
