Hoboken411 reader Laura reminded me of this fantastic program to send our troops something they will appreciate.
Anysoldier.com is a website that started up in 2003 to help our soldiers currently deployed in the middle east. With over 4,000 military contacts representing over 120,000 men and women, you can easily lend assistance to where it’s really needed.
Most of the military personnel listed on the site have “mini blogs” where they tell you where they’re located, what the conditions are like, what their squadron’s function is, and items in particular that would be useful to them.
A fantastic way to show support. I’ve been looking through many the entries to find someone who may need some extra help (like crappy conditions, limited supplies, etc.) Laura said she already sent 2 packages out for the holidays.
One of the most important things, the site says, is to send your letters of support and encouragement to let them know they’re appreciated here back in the states.
