Send a message to a member of our military.  This is a program started years ago by Abigail Van Buren.  We now have the ability to send an e-mail to our soldier, sailors, airman and marines serving overseas.  Just click on the link and away you go.



About Operation Dear Abby
Send a special message to our men and women in the military defending American freedom worldwide.

In 1967, Sgt. Billy Thompson wrote Abigail Van Buren asking for a Christmas present for our service members -- "Just a letter from home," American citizens have been sending their best wishes to the troops every holiday season. "Operation Dear Abby," has brought joy to hundreds of thousands of U.S. military personnel deployed away from home around the world.

Concerns about regular mail delivery have prompted the military to suspend the letter-writing campaign...

However, Dear Abby, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the U.S. Department of the Navy's LifeLines2000 Services Network in association with SPAWAR SCC (National Capital Region) is providing this private and secure online resource that will allow you to send a Sailor, Marine, Soldier, Airman, or Coast Guardsman a holiday greeting or message of support.

How It Works:
Supporters send messages to our service members.

Service members with internet access may read those messages via 'OperationDearAbby.Net'.

Service members without internet access may still read messages as follows:

Company commanders that have internet access have the ability to download bulk messages to be printed and distributed according to service branch and location.
