I'm deployed to Afghanistan and continue to see the impact made by Operation Write Home. We don't have a lot of time to write, so these cards with a message on the front or images that convey feelings to family, with just enough space inside to remind a wife, kids, mother/father, or others that we're doing okay and a quick update is perfect. I try to use one at least every two weeks to let my wife and baby girl know that they're on my mind all the time and are the motivation for sucess, so I can be reunited with them after a year spent in this war zone. THANK YOU OPERATION WRITE HOME!

I was deploy to Afghanistan in 2010 when I first heard of Operation Write Home. I went to the post office to help a fellow soldier with packages to mail back home when I saw the cards. I was stunned how beautiful the cards were, so I grabbed a few and sent them to my wife and daughters. My family was so amazed and they ask me if the base PX sold them, and I said nope. I told them of this wonderful organization, which has volunteers to make them and send them out to all who would ask. I enthusiastically requested a few boxes for my unit and since my job took me around to different camps, I made sure I took a few and the word was out. Some fellow service members ask me how they could get more cards. I told them to go to Operations Write Home website and see the beautiful magic evolve. Thank you for making my family smile with joy!!!!!

I am the Programs Manager for the USO at FOB Fenty in Afghanistan. I researched a way to get more greeting cards for the Troops to send home and found Operation Write Home's Website. I can only say that the Troops absolutely love these cards! The personal touch makes these cards sooo much better than anything they could ever get out there. The ONLY problem is that they go sooo quick! :) We love the care put into each card and I'd like to send a big THANK YOU to Sandy Allnock and the Operation Write Home Team!!
