email soldiers to show your support
Over the last ten years or so there has been an ongoing groundswell of supports for our men and women in uniform. Before the 9-11 attacks we didn't really spare a thought for our soldiers, engaged in small, low profile squabbles in little known countries around the world. Iraq and Afghanistan, though, brought our soldiers once again to the fore, and every so often it's nice to offer a little appreciation.
These days you can email soldiers to offer your support, thank them for a job well done or simply to chat with and get to know one of our brave young men and women working to keep us safe and secure. An international pen pal is a great thing to have... while you get the benefit of chatting to someone doing a difficult, dangerous job in a far flung land they get the opportunity to catch up on events back home, relax at the end of a long day and escape their difficult circumstances, if only for a little while.
We love the idea of emailing soldiers, and we think everyone should be doing it.
