Are you 100% sure that these packages will actually go where they are intended to go? I know that a lot of shipments have been suspended due to security reasons. After all, anyone could send something pretty nasty in the mail.

I can guarantee I will send them to the addresses of the service men and women Operation Military Pride sent to me. Once they leave me, it's up to the USPS, the military and those individual service members to distribute. I have to trust that they will do as they said they would.

As for the nasty stuff, most likely, I will end up checking what comes in since everything will be coming from my address. Everything will remain intact as far as letters, addresses, inserts. I'll just be verifying it's safe to forward.


For example, you can no longer send mail to "Any Service Member" /
Operation Dear Abby.


Because of that restriction, Operation Military Pride sends letters to specific service men and women who have agreed to distribute letters to others where they are.

It would certainly be much easier for me to have just posted the "any service member" FPO's, but they will not accept anything not addressed to a specific person.


Messages are now sent/viewed via the internet. See http://anyservicemember.navy.mil/About.html for details.

This is a great way for people to communicate, too! Thanks for the link.

I prefer a hand written letter for things like this, but as long as people take action, it's all good.

Thanks for the responses. Some good questions and points have been raised.
