    Hi Everyone!

    I would very much like to write to a soldier overseas, and while I could write to 'any CF member' I thought that someone here might know of a soldier who would enjoy receiving a letter. I have recently joined the military myself, but won't actually be serving on behalf of the CF until I am done school. Especially at this time of year, I think it is important for these brave people to know how much we appreciate their sacrifices.


    So... if anyone has a family member/friend who is serving overseas and you think they would like to receive a letter, could you please PM me their information:

    RANK/INITIALS/NAME
    UNIT/SECTION
    OPERATION

    Thank you so much!

    Congrats on joining the forces.

    My son is in the Reserves and does have friends that are over in Afghanistan for this tour of duty. I will ask him for the address.

    Hi Trubus,

    Yes I would love the information. If you don't feel comfortable posting the info on the board (I understand privacy), could you PM me the info?
    Thanks

    All the information necessary to send the troops a letter or email can be found at the following site:

    "www.forces.gc.ca/site/Community/Messageboard/index_e.asp"

    Note that there are some Troops that don't get regular mail and they do appreciate letters from anyone interested in writing. You can also post a message to the online forum. These men and woman do a fantastic job under very trying conditions and really appreciate the support. :thumbsup2

    TC.
