Project Letters From Home

Jim Cannon at Thinking Right has a new project and could use a lot of help -- and the best part is that the more we help, the more we support the troops. Picking up where Blackfive left off, Jim has decided to organize a letter-writing campaign to keep up morale in our fine fighting forces in the 1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment. He wants to make sure every Marine in that battalion gets a personal letter from an American expressing our gratitude for the service he or she provides us.

Jim has the contact information at his site, and perhaps we'll get Jim on today's CQ Radio show to discuss the project further. In the meantime, help Jim reach his goal of 1000 e-mails to those Marines.

This project might have better response if more information was available about the regiment's situation. It is fairly difficult to write a non-specific support letter, to people you don't know, when the only detail you have is that they are somewhere in Iraq.

The earlier letter-writing campaign to another unit had a more specific prompt. As I recall, it was in response to a specific event or challenge.
