Let's send some messages of support to the soldiers in Afghanistan

Because Matt over at Blackfive asked. The soldiers in Afghanistan often refer to this area of operations as the forgotten front and after the recent news story run by the New York Times and after all of the hullabaloo coming from the news of Prince Harry's deployment to that AO, and now followed by his sudden apparent departure maybe it is time to show the guys and gals in Afghanistan some attention.
Our paratroopers are in the fight of their lives and they need to hear that America loves them.

Please send an email of support to

Or you can mail cards to:

Leta Carruth
P O Box 100
Cordova, TN 38088

Due to security reasons in Afghanistan please do not put addresses or phone numbers on any correspondence. All emails will be printed out here in the US and mailed to Afghanistan as they do not have the resources to receive a large number of emails. All letters and emails will be vetted to make sure there are no negative comments. These are letters of support, so please keep them positive and uplifting.

A Huge THANK YOU to the proponents of (and the leaders of) this effort - Tanker Babe and Mrs. Diva!
