Sadly those in the military really aren't bright enough to write, I'm up to the letter that comes after B. If you live near a Fort, Base, NG Armory, even a recruiters office just pay them a visit or give them a call. The middle east can be a real bummer especially during holidays. There are 1000s of folks that would love to have a pen pal, especially the young kids. For some of these kids it's the first time that they've been away from home--let alone for months during a war. When my eldest was in preschool his "teacher" asked if it would be okay if they sent mail-of course. So we had different schools sending mail over, from kids 5 to 15. I'd get wads of mail & just give them out to folks. They loved it & some had or have permanent pen pals. It was a piece of home & to read how much they were admired & appreciated made it a lot easier, they had a purpose. So get together with some friends, bang out some letters, somebody can hook you up with addresses etc. the men and women will be thrilled, it really boost morale & lets them know that they're not running around that POS for nothing

Does he have to be in active duty right now? Can it be a war veteran?
