Post Your Holiday Messages
for the Troops


Post your holiday messages for the troops here.Post your own holiday messages here to thank our men and women in uniform. Hundreds of thousands of military service members throughout the world will be separated from their families over the holidays.

They need to know we appreciate the quiet sacrifices they and their families make on a daily basis, so that we might enjoy the holidays in peace with our own families.



So, whether your holiday greetings are Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Ground Hog Day, Happy Martin Luther King Day, Happy St. Patrick's Day . . . well, you get the idea.

Whichever holidays they celebrate, we wish our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coasties a blessed day, and a safe journey home to their loved ones.

We expect the majority of "holiday cards" posted here will be "Christmas cards." We want to make it clear we are not attempting to take Christ out of Christmas, as one reader thought when he saw our request for "holiday messages." Rather, we are simply leaving this page available year-round, so that you may wish our troops a happy holiday, whatever time of year it might be.

And since the practice of sending mail to "Any Soldier" had to be stopped, we thought it appropriate to create a place where you can post your holiday greetings for the troops. So feel free to use this opportunity to send your personal Christmas cards for the troops! Or holiday cards for any other holiday.
