    IF you want to be inspired and help someone who needs your encouragement- please check out

    www.anysoldier.com

    There are so many currently deployed military heros who would love to recieve letters and drawings from children. If you find yourself with "a little extra time":rolleyes: this time of the year-may I suggest having your students write a letter.

    Your view and my view of the war is not important. What is important are the men and women in harms way.

    Please take a moment to check out this site. You will be encouraged and perhaps motivated.

    Any questions? Feel free to email me.

    Thanks.

    Shelly, I clicked on the link at the top that said "where to send" and then I looked at all the names on the left side. When you click on a name you can see how many times their addresses have been requested and how many people they have volunteered to share the letters you send with. I chose a small group of 10 people to start with. After you look over the above items, you give another click for their total address if you agree that you will definitely send them something. Hope this helps you navigate through their website.

    I invite others to visit the site also. Take a look at the forums. It is a place where you can get your questions answered or just chat.
