Operation: Post Card

OK, we've just dropped off Specialist UTMan at the base.. next time I will see him will be July 4th (hopefully) then it could possibly be another year or more before I see him again.

In the mean time, the Empress would like the blogosphere to help out with Operation: Post Card. UTMan said that the one thing he would enjoy more than anything (other than going home) would be getting mail. "Even an ugly postcard that said 'Hey - How are you? Just want you to know I'm thinking about you.'"

So, think about it. Pray about it. Would you commit to sending my brother (or others in his unit if I can obtain addresses - it would suck to be the only one not getting any mail) a post card on a regular basis (say monthly) once he settled somewhere?

If so, reply to this post with your email address. I will add you to the list and let you know what the address is in a more private fashion rather than posting it on the blog. It will be a while before this would start but I want to get the word out now.

Let's remind our troops that they are special, loved, valued, and that we are proud of them! Particularly when they are The Empress' brother.

Trackbacks (foot prints around here) are welcome and encouraged!
