Letters from Home


L E T T E R S || For the soldiers serving overseas during WW2, letters were the only way of keeping in touch with family and loved ones at home. These letters brought hope and warmth to our boys fighting over there.

We try to keep this spirit alive with our own letter writing program at Operation Meatball... Over the years it has been a wonderful way of staying in contact with the veterans, and some of the most precious friendships have been formed with the back and forth of these letters.

The other day we received a very thoughtful gift to encourage us along in our letter writing: a book of Purple Heart stamps. This gift meant so much to us. It means 20 letters will be going out to 20 veterans in the next couple of days! Few things make me more excited.

Thank you Saunders Family for your creativity and practical generosity!!
