My son's 1st grade class wants to make Christmas cards for our soldiers. Who do I contact?

I used to volunteer for adoptaplatoon.org. They screen potential supporters, to help ensure the safety of our troops. If you're interested, fill out your information:
If there is a spot for a personal note, tell them what you've told us -- that your son's class wants to send letters. They might give you the information for a chaplain or other contact who would be happy to distribute your letters.
Good job with the kids -- I hope they enjoy the project. I'm sure the troops will!
I send cards to soldiers using the website anysoldier.com. You can get names of soldiers from your state or choose a name. I once sent a card to a soldier who had the same name as my father. It is neat to read about their team and what they are doing. Cards are very special to them. You can send one or many. The anysoldier contact person passes the mail to soldiers who don't get much mail from friends and family. It's a real morale booster. The cost of mailing a letter is the same as sending a letter in the US.
Thanks, you've been very helpful. Natalie
