Day 175: Letter to a Soldier
So far, over the course of this year I have done a few things to help the people who risk(ed) their lives to protect this Country. On day 72 I donated to a charity who supports veterans. On day 80 I bought lunch for an active member of our armed services, and on day 128 I sent a care package of beef jerky to a soldier overseas. A couple of weeks ago on got a letter from that soldier I sent the care package. I thought that was pretty cool. He was very appreciative of what I sent and that he let me know how nice it was to know people were thinking of them back in the states. This gave me an idea for another act of kindness. I wanted to let another soldier know that they are in our thoughts. So today, for my act of kindness, I wrote a letter to an active soldier serving overseas. I found a really cool website www.operationgratitude.com that makes it very easy to send some thoughts over to our soldiers.
