Support your military members: How you can show your support for our heroes
I get tons of email about how Americans can write to our servicemembers or otherwise show their support. Until 9/11, there were two primary programs which allowed the general public to send mail to "any servicemember:" the Military Postal Service's "Dear Any Servicemember" program, which operated year-round, and the annual "Operation Dear Abby" program which supported troops with letters and cards from home during the holiday season. Beginning in December 2007, Americans can now send holiday cards (between mid-November and mid-December) to deployed servicemembers and wounded warriors in military hospitals, through a special program administered by the American Red Cross, called "Holiday Mail for Heroes."
