or not – Reach Out and Touch a Soldier

It’s the holidays so I’m continuing with another “or not” posting.

Reach Out and Touch a Soldier Overseas

Earlier this year a member published an article on performing Random Acts of Kindness.

This is the perfect time of year to remind you of it and urge you to perform a Random Act of Kindness.

Reaching out and sending a note to our soldiers overseas is just one of those acts you can easily perform from the comfort of your own home. How simple is that?

So please, go visit:

AnySoldier.com

or on FaceBook at:

Adopt A Soldier

and send a note or card to a soldier overseas.

The site also has listings for Marines, Sailors, Airmen and the Coast Guard.

If you haven’t performed a Random Act of Kindness in a while, how about doing it now.

I bet it will give you a good feeling reaching out and touching someone.

Happy New Year everyone!

NOTE: Don’t let the .com worry you, the organization was registered as non-profit and you can read it all in their history.

    Hi Rosemary,

    Thank you so much for those cheery thoughts for the New Year. you are one special lady.

    Also I thank you for the ability to say hi to some of the soldiers over there, but find myself wonderfing how the haeck they get time to go to a computer and look for stuff for them? 🙂

    anyway, I shall certainly be trying.

    BTw, Rosemary when we do our big launch on the 4th Of Jan. it is a freebie so you might like to take a good looka around.

    you also get a full 30 day FREE tour of our main site 12sc, no credit card required, no payment of any description during that time.

    You do get the chance st forget this if you think I have been too free and liberal with our friendship.
    don’rt mean to just want to see you do well too.
    It’s so exciting when something
    really works!!!

    Bless you lass,
    Danella

      Danella, you yourself are one special lady.

      Don’t worry, the soldiers do get some time off-duty.
      I will definitely stop by and have a look around, thank you for the invite.

      I value our friendship and wouldn’t have it any other way. Good luck with the launch if I don’t talk to you again before then.

      I love the pictures of your office and what was it a 6 second commute?

    Thank you for posting this. As the mother of two sailors (one a chief petty officer and the other shipping out to Basic Training in a few days), I am always moved to find others who appreciate the sacrifices and service of our men and women in uniform.

    Blessings,

    Beth

      You are very welcome. You always hear about all the messages being sent to soldiers overseas but rarely do you see how people do it. I found this information through the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation and decided to try and spread the word.
      I hope your sailors stay safe.

      I am glad you didn’t let the name of my blog scare you aware. I do try and lighten it up with some happier thoughts and good will.

      Wishing you all the best in the new year.

      Robert, You are very welcome. Anything to support our troops. Only if you want to, you could link to the post and hopefully more of our soldiers will receive some kind words. 🙂
