The Letter and Card Brigade

Inspired by my friend Cecilia’s letter and card brigade she coordinated for her son when he was deployed to Iraq, I found the Letter and Card Brigade is a great way to support your military loved one while they are deployed. Feel free to adapt this in any way that works best for your family. When I sent this out to family and friends, our son got more letters, packages, than 1200 men in his battalion and was able to share the contents with all his men while being encouraged by the correspondence with loved ones who cared—and he was surrounded and covered by the prayers of people. This gave them something specific on a specific week to do which they loved.
