A soldier in Iraq can’t see your ribbon,
Or the flag at your front door.
But a letter they hold in their hands,
To them means so much more.

yellowribbon.gifCheck out the website and show your support. There’s lists of what is best to send to which arena. These brave soldiers/airmen/marines/sailors need to know that we’re here rooting for them, and we care about their sacrifices.

Besides letters, they need and appreciate things like telephone calling cards (check the website – not usable in all areas); skin care products, especially sunscreen and moisturizers; stationery and pens; laundry needs; even food products.

anysoldier.com has coordinated with multiple vendors to put together “care packages” that take all the work out of it. Just order the package of your choice and send it on.

  • “As you might know, on occasion the Iraqi’s have no problem supplying movie DVD’s at a fraction of the cost back home. What you are not aware of is the fact that those movies are stolen off the bases and sold back to the soldiers. I recommend that when you supply that information to those who send packages and to the soldiers/Marines whom apply for items to be sent in, that they mark the movies to prevent unscrupulous individuals from benefiting from the unwary.” Colonel, USMC.
    We strongly suggest that if you send any CDs or DVDs, use a permanent magic marker and simply put “AnySoldier.com” on both the cover and CD/DVD. It won’t take long before these won’t be a target anymore… -Marty
