Featured Friday: Merry Christmas from kids!

In the spirit of the holidays, we thought this Christmas Eve that it would be fun to share some holiday letters and cards from little kids across the nation. It's a long post but hopefully you'll make it through to the end.

First, two letters from heroes received recently; the second was written to a teacher who sent in letters!

Thanks for what you and your volunteers do. Yesterday I got a very nice card from Bridget and a nice colored picture of a dog with a wonderful note from Emily from Forestville, Door County, "Wisconson," and a great letter from COL (ret) Stephen and his wife May. With great gratitude and respect, Lt Col G.L.
Mrs Norris, I found a letter from Aimi of your second grade. I answered her in a separate letter. I am a US Army Reserve Chaplain serving in Kuwait. The unit is responsible for tracking and delivering all goods shipped by ship. As a father of five, I know how it feels when a letter gets answered. My prayer is that you tell all of your students how wonderful their letters are to us. I have seen hundreds of smiles and "thank yous" from the men and women here. The men and women here serve this nation out of hte love shared and instilled by their teachers. You are my hero. You make the impact that makes possible the character and caliber of the Soldiers I serve with here. Respectfully, CH(MAJ) R.S.
And now...some kids letters! Click on a picture to make it larger so you can read it.










Thank you so much to everyone who's been working so hard on AnyHero mail! If you ever wondered what goes into the processing of hero mail, here's a little step by step view from Sandy's house.
Mail is overflowing! The bottom right shelf and all the mail outside the cabinet is from KIDS! :)
All mail is dutifully reviewed. Someone's not happy about the scarf though.

Adult and kids letters from all over are sorted into piles of 20-30 letters & cards.
Each pack is put in a ziploc, with either a seasonal or happy thank you one showing through.
A bag goes on top of each box, along with oversized cards and letters that don't fit elsewhere.
There's so much mail here that a bunch of boxes have begun to be sent over with *just* mail in them - specifically to really remote places as well as to combat support hospitals. To think that we had to put out a cry for more mail - now we have tons! Thank you, America - MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Ciara is such a trooper. I may have to send her some doggie treats in my next shipment.
