It’s a Military Life-Miso and Vet Network

It’s a Military Life, started the Veteran Pen Pal Project to provide pen pal letters to our veterans. Our veterans are without visitors due to COVID, and I want to give back to those wonderful men and women who have served our great country.

Veteran Pen Pal Project – writing pen pal letters, making friendships, while supporting our veterans.

Grab a piece of paper, envelope, pen, and stamp-and you’re almost done! Write a small note and mail it out tomorrow. Be the change. Be that friend for someone who needs it the most.

 

Like my son’s new pen pal who said, “I have been locked up 18 weeks with no visitors because of COVID-19…”

His pen pal also said, “Thank you for being my friend!”

 

We all need to connect with each other and make friendships, especially during such isolating times for everyone.

A small act of kindness, can make a big difference in the lives of our veterans!

Send your pen pal letter today, or email it directly!

How to Participate:

Let’s touch the lives of others by becoming a pen pal to a veteran!

1. Veterans are looking for pen pals of all ages and backgrounds-military or civilian!

They want to share their stories with a friend like you!

2. Take a photo of you and your family working on your pen pal letter or craft, and post below.

3. Address it to:

My Veteran Pen Pal
501 SE Flower Mound Rd
Lawton, OK 73501

4. On the back of the envelope write: “Pen Pal/Veteran/Military Child/Friend looking for a veteran that that likes… (insert interest)”

They will pair you from there!
