Your mission TODAY!

Packages For Soldiers

Sign the Petition : 1,317 Letters and Emails Sent So Far

We ask you to join us in urging our U.S. Senators and Representatives to support the effort to pass a law that would allow for the free mailing of letters and packages to our military personnel in the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of operation.

Representatives Kathy Castor and Gus Bilirakis have already committed to co-sponsoring a bill that would achieve our goal. They must get the support of the remainder of their colleagues, particularly those in the Senate.

Families and organizations attempting to ship goods to our military have discovered that the cost can be onerous. That should not be a factor in our attempts to make their lives more bearable in the most trying circumstances.

Keep in mind that the members of Congress enjoy the right of free mailing, called “franking” privileges. It is only proper that our fighting men and women who are in harm’s way be granted the same rights....

I forget where I found this, but that doesn't matter. This is an important issue, that needs YOUR help.

So your mission today? Go sign the petition, and then pass it on. Let's get 'er done! Thank you.
