The great Memorial Day 10,000 letter campaign

The great Memorial Day 10,000 letter campaign

Here’s the question:

Can we get 10,000 people to commit to sending at least one letter to a soldier for Memorial Day?

We will soon find out!

There are three things you can do if you are going to participate.

1. First and foremost, write a letter. Or a card. Or a postcard. Or whatever. And mail it to:
    Two For the Troops
    Attn: Memorial Day Letter Campaign
    PO Box 15447
    CHICAGO, IL 60615-5145

2. Go to our facebook invite for the event, at, and sign up that you are sending a letter.

3. Invite whomever you can and spread the word however possible — especially through facebook, twitter, etc. If the current numbers hold up about 80,000 people will have to know about it before we have 10,000 people commit to sending a letter, so we’ll really need to spread the word over the next couple of days.

So …. Thank you! I am sure we can have this be a great success!

Additionally, please post your stories to the comments of this post — what are you going to be writing to the troops, who are you sending to, etc. We’ll be using them here and on Two For the Troops’ facebook page as well.

Let’s make this a Memorial Day our troops will not soon forget!

Certainly glad it's May 23rd - ha!

As you can see, we got snow in the Boise foothills yesterday! And summer "begins" next weekend.

Temps were in the 80s last weekend; yesterday 43 high. I could see my breath when outside. Today is better. In the 50s. Been the craziest spring I've ever seen!

Wonder if we'll EVER get to go camping.
