The idea was great the first time, so it’s good to see fellow RMA blogger Jim Cannon pursuing it again:
In other news, itâ€™s time for a new Letters from Home project. This time I will be collecting letters for the Navy. Iâ€™ll be sending them off to the USS Russell â€” DDG-59. So, just like last time, please send generalized supportive emails to me, and I will make sure that they get to the men and women aboard the Russell. When you send your email, please be sure and put â€œLetters from Homeâ€ in the subject line. Weâ€™re aiming for about 250 emails, so Iâ€™m hoping to have them collected and packed up by the end of the month. As with last time, anything you all can do to help spread the word would be greatly appreciated.
I encourage you to join me in giving up a little time to do a small part to help raise the morale of some of our brave servicemen. If you want to figure out what you can write about, Jim points us to a truly interesting blog kept by the sailors on the USS Russell – it might give you an idea or two.
