Sometimes a simple hand written letter is all someone needs to smile. My dad was in the Marine Corp several years ago and so when I came across operation gratitude I couldn't pass it up. Operation gratitude is a program where you write letters to deployed troops. You can ask them questions, tell them about yourself, but mainly just make them smile. These people are heroes and they deserve the thanks and appreciation. If you would like to thank our troops go to http://www.operationgratitude.com/get-involved/write-letters/ and share the kindness.
Remember if you perform an act of kindness send in your story and I will post it on this blog: firstname.lastname@example.org
