Military reporter Michael Yon captured a shot of an OWH box while overseas - and posted it on his Facebook page at the time. He's now posted it on his blog too! Go see the photo, but here is his caption:
More often than not in the wars, these dispatches are about younger troopers and what they suffer and accomplish, and more often than not, it’s not glamorous or pretty. It’s gritty, ugly and lonely. But many people at home make a difference. I was going to a meeting a couple weeks back and saw this box of “Operation Write Home” cards, and so I stopped to make a photo because the people at home need to know how important their acts of kindness can be. Those acts of kindness have a cumulative effect and it’s amazing that despite nearly a decade of war, so many people at home are still so supportive.
Here's the latest tv story that's been aired, thanks to Colleen for being willing to make cards on television!
And...in the Orange County Register....reporter Jenny Sokol wrote a wonderful piece here about OWH! We're reposting it below because the OC might not keep that up forever....we wouldn't want to lose this great article!
