Help our boys and girls in the US military

A new site has been created called "Military Penpals":

I am starting a new project called Military Penpals. It is in the very beginning stages. My goal is to set up FREE penpal programs between military personnel and the civilians who want them to know they are remembered. I will act as the go-between and coordinate the exchange of email and snail mail addresses. Ideally, I want to find military personnel... soldiers, sailors, etc... who don't receive mail from home. There is nothing sadder to me than the thought of a soldier, sailor, airman, or marine far from home and having nothing with his/her name on it during mail call. Any serviceman or woman is very welcome to participate!!

I will add to this site as information starts coming in. For now I am looking for people who wish to participate... both military and civilians.

I served in the IDF (Israel Defense Forces, or Israel's army) as a field medic. My parents and family do not live in Israel and I was a "Haial Boded", or "Lone Soldier". I stayed many weekends alone at the base, while my buddies would travel back to their girlfriends, family and friends - it's not a good feeling.

If you have the time, please sign up and write a few words to our boys and girls who are risking their lives so we can live ours in peace. Check out the Military Penpals website at:

Thanks to Rachel Lucas for the link.

Update: Unfortunately the Military Penpals site now seems to be down. This post is receiving many comments from folks who would like to help and contact a soldier but I haven't yet found a similar site. If anyone knows of one, please add your comments below.

Update 2: One of our readers, Loretta, has a good tip: point your browser to, whose mission is to "keep our service members morale high".

I am very interested in having a soldier for a penpal. I am wondering if there is an age limit. I am 12 years old. I am also an American and was wondering if your program is open for Americans to participate in also. Thanks and good luck!

Hi, I am 15 years old, my life time goal is to become a profesional softball player, until i realized that all the men and women fighting for our freedom and individuality, were once fighting for their own life time goals, it helps alot to know that some men and women out there are willing to give up their own individuality and freedom, to one day soon redeem more freedom for the girls and boys not yet able to realize how special america is! I think, and i believe, that one day there will be NO MORE freedom bargining, and that we will all have enough to get us through life!

Guten Tag! Shalom! Privet!
My name is Beryl-Anne and I'm 15 yrs. old from near Chicago Illinois. I'm lucky because I live near Chicago, which is near the Navy Base.
I am Jewish, and I hope to meet a Jewish boy/girl (my age) in the military or actually the marine corps or NAVY. I love the NAVY the most though. But I want to be a astronomer when I grow up.
If you are Jewish in the navy, military or marine corps, please email me. If you're going to be in the navy, military, etc, when you get older, please email me.

Hello to all soldiers serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. I would like to say i truly appreciate what you all are doing. Not many people really do care what you're doing. I am planning on joining the Air Force once i graduate next year. I would also like to say that i Pray for you all every night before i go to bed. i ask God to bless you all. Whether or not you believe in God, just know one thing, and that is that someone does care and think about what you are going through. i know that you do not know me and that is why i am grateful of what you are doing. Please keep on fighting and live to see another day.

God Bless.
