Suggestions for AnyHero letters

One of our cardmakers did a little research she wanted to share. "I'm working on a few AnyHero cards and have such a hard time figuring out what to write," said Nicole. "I found some ideas on a few other websites and thought it may help other people."
  1. Thank you so much for your service, being away from your home, family and friends.  I just want to let you know that I appreciate it and thank you for it.  Please come back safe and soon.
  2. We stand behind you and support you all the way.  Thank you.
  3. I appreciate what you all are doing for our freedom.  As a veteran, I know what you are going through. Thank you.
  4. Sending you big hugs and cheer from home.  Thank you so much for your service and bravery.   Come home soon!
  5. Thank you for your service.  Your bravery and strength of character represent what America stands for.  Bless you!
  6. It's a great honor to be able to thank you for serving our country.  You're very brace for the service you're doing for freedom!
  7. Thank you for all you do.  You portray what we American value most...freedom.  Thank you for your commitment and bravery.  May this card help bring you good health, clarity of mind and the courage you need to be successful.  Each of you play such an important role in protecting our country.  Please know that we are all behind your efforts and appreciate you and pray for you daily.  You are all heroes to us!
  8. I cannot find the words to express how grateful my family and I are that you are putting yourself in harm's way to protect our country.  The U.S.A. is the land of the free and the home of the brave...but only because of courageous people like you.  We wish you and your fellow troop members complete safety throughout your tour of duty.  May you return home soon to a true hero's welcome.  Thank you.
  9. We don't know each other and will probably never meet, but I want you to know that you and all of our troops are in our hearts and prayers each day.  Please always remember what you're doing will always be appreciated and never forgotten.  I wish you all the best and pray for your safe and speedy return home to your family and friends.  Thank you.
 What other message suggestions do you have?

Thank you so much for these suggestions. I always have a hard time knowing what to write.

This is a great post. I try to include a couple of Any Hero cards in every package of cards and it can be difficult to know what to write. This post will hopefully encourage more card makers to add a few Any hero notes to their packages too.

Thanks for these suggestions--they are very helpful!! I haven't actually found a group yet in Canada that sends cards for our troops to send home to their families but I do try to send out at least one Thank You card to a soldier I don't know every month. I find it difficult to know what to say sometimes too! Lately, I have been enclosing a $10 Tim Horton's gift card with the sentiment "have a cup or two on us". It's such a small way to brighten someone's day & who better than a deserving serviceman to receive it!!

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. So thank you for your service to our country.

Thanks for these. I'm not real good at expressing my feelings in this area so these will be a great help.
