- Go to one of the websites below.
- Follow the instructions.

The neatest thing about this service is that the service member who receives your letter will pass it to a fellow service member who hasn't been receiving much--or any--mail.
So, your letters and packages will go to the people who really need a lift. That's a heck of a good system, I think.
So what are you waiting for? Get writing!
