One of my favorite things - AnySoldier.Com

We've been doing this for a few years and it is something that never get old. For us it is about supporting Soldiers. If you have free time or just want to do something consider writing a soldier or supporting the website in whatever way you see fit. Since the Anthrax scare and 9/11 this is one way to make sure your card, letter or care package gets into the hands of a soldier.

I snipped this from their front page to tell you more about them

How this works:

We have Soldier contacts on the "Where to Send" page. Click through the names and select the one(s) you wish to support. They list what the folks they represent want and need. We even have a search capability so you can easily identify what the troops need most.
All the Soldiers involved in this effort are military volunteers stationed in areas that are in harm's way. You send your support (letters and/or packages) addressed to them and when they see the "Attn: Any Soldier" line in their address they put your letters and packages into the hands of Soldiers who don't get much or any mail first. Everything is shared.

We have "What to Send", "How to Send" and "FAQ" pages to help you properly send letters and packages, please read these. Be sure to also read our "New & Stuff" and "Success Stories" pages. This effort is 110% voluntary. You send your support, and maybe some stuff, directly to whatever unit or units you want, you don't send us anything.

We also have a video you may watch free online, "Tango Mike!" which is a great overview of how the site works. The video is available for purchase HERE.

PLEASE read the entire web site before you send anything.
We want you to be informed and comfortable with this effort.
Thank you for your support!
