i actually send letters to the troops thru DOF. i am extremly thankful they include my letters in their care packages. i love getting responses back from the troops. i try to use bright and cheerful paper to brighten their day just a little. i am extremly proud of the work these great people at DOF do and hope they continue on. i now have several people i know personally serving and i am proud to say no one will ever forget the service and sacrifice of all even if they aren't serving directly. i like to think my bright colored letters give even a crack of a smile to our guys and gals serving and i am greatful beyond belief that DOF helps me spread that little bit of happiness. GOD Bless DOF and GOD BLESS our troops and their families
