NEW MADRID, Mo. – Friends of Our Troops is excited to be celebrating the 50th anniversary of a letters to the military program formerly known as Vietnam Mail Call. The Mail for Our Military campaign continues that tradition, and plans are underway for collecting cards and letters for Christmas 2015.
The group extends special thanks to Flovilla UMC in Georgia, which was the leading United Methodist church in the Southeast in the most recent campaign. The congregation also was a leader among all churches nationally.
Organizers say the project is suitable for United Methodist churches anywhere in the U.S. Cards and letters from across the nation are received at the Friends of Our Troops' headquarters, where they are mixed then separated into hundreds of packages to be sent to U.S. military personnel across the U.S. and around the world. Special emphasis is placed on sending as much mail as possible to deployed and overseas-based troops.
