Thanking Our Troops

I recently became aware of the Xerox Corporation’s “Let’s Say Thanks” program. It makes it easy for us to thank soldiers who give up so much in order to do what they do.

From the “Lets Say Thanks” website:

“The mission of Let's Say Thanks is to provide a way for individuals across the country to recognize U.S. troops stationed overseas. By submitting a message through this site you have the opportunity to send a free personalized postcard greeting to deployed servicemen and women.

The postcards, depicting patriotic scenes and hometown images, were selected from a pool of entries from children across the country.

All you have to do is click on your favorite design and either select the message that best expresses your sentiment or draft a personal note. The postcards are then printed on the Xerox iGen3® Digital Production Press and mailed in care packages by military support organization

During the holidays, it can become easy for us to take for granted the ability to attend parties, concerts, and spending time with family and friends.

But not everyone has the opportunity to spend Christmas with their families. People in the military are often separated from friends, parents, spouses, and their children.

The other day a Seattle radio host spoke via phone to a woman who’s experiencing separation. Stationed in another country, she won’t see her husband and three children for six months. The youngest child is only two months old, but as difficult as it is to not have the baby with her, the mother still feels strong about serving our country.

It takes only a minute to send a card.

Take that minute today and thank a soldier at
