At a meeting I recently attended, a lady had a stack of "Thank You, U.S. Service Member" postcards. She was urging us to take some and fill them out - I thought this would be a good school project for Jacob. I took 6 postcards for Jake to fill out; that's a lot of writing for a 6 year old boy. This morning, I explained the project to Jacob, and he was very excited about it. He loves anything camoflage and wants to join the military when he grows up. I wrote on the white board so he could copy onto the postcards, and then left him to his task. Halfway into the project, Jacob came running into the kitchen very upset. "But, Mommy, six postcards isn't enough for all the military men to get one!" I calmed him down by explaining, "Lots of people love our military men and want to thank them and tell them how proud we are of them. So lots of people are filling these out and sending them, too. And then there will be enough, hopefully." So...if you want to help there to be enough postcards for all of the military men and women, you can go to OperationThankYou.org and get your own "Thank You, U.S. Service Member" postcards. They also have "Get Well, Service Member" postcards, as well as a "Thank You" DVD that would be great for care packages.
