I just discovered two simple things to do if you would like to express your appreciation to American troops stationed around the world.
1. In June, 2006, the Xerox Corporation launched a website that allows citizens to send free, personalized messages to our troops. You can choose from a selection of 78 postcards decorated by children, add a message, and it will be sent to a U.S. soldier. letssaythanks.com
2. Give2TheTroops.org is a nonprofit organization that distributes boxes of necessities and niceties to the military. You can make a donation at their website to contribute to this effort to support our American heroes.
