Please place your letter/note in an envelope. You can also bring picture postcards including those of our beautiful Chicago and holiday cards are also appropriate. The Community Services Committee will collect the letters/notes/cards and forward them to a Chaplain stationed in Iraq no later than Friday, November 19th. The Chaplain will hand them out to the injured US troops as they return from the field.
The troops are interested in hearing about news from home and any information regarding personal activities with your family and friends that you care to share. Topics of interest include: Sports, new movies, weather, things going on in your town, TV shows, jokes, general words of encouragement and support, interesting/unusual items like Internet dating, etc. The only real requirement is that your letter/note be sincere and from the heart - as the kids say "keep it real." The sacrifices the soldiers are making are very real and we should respond with sincerity and appreciation.
Thank you for participating and supporting our troops. A special thanks
goes to Tressler Soderstrom Maloney & Priess for contributing a portion of
the postage. If you have any questions about this project, please contact
