Support the troops

It is more important than ever that we, as a nation, let our military-service members deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan know that they are not forgotten. Letters, cards and care packages sent to our nation’s deployed troops serving far from home mean more to U.S. troops than words can say. Your help is needed to ensure that we never forget those who serve on our behalf.

AdoptaPlatoon is a national nonprofit organization serving the U.S. military by providing a program for Americans to send mail support in the form of cards, letters and care packages to deployed U.S. troops. Families, civic groups, clubs, schools and businesses can participate and let our nation’s troops know that they are not forgotten!

To learn how you can support our deployed troops, visit the AdoptaPlatoon Web site at www.adoptaplatoon.org, and remember a soldier’s words when he says: “Please support us as your sons and daughters who have more than dedicated our lives to keep America great!”
