Write a Christmas Message to the Troops

Sharing is caring!

As a military family, we have appreciated every letter that was sent, either to my husband while he was deployed, or the coupons and care packages we were sent while living overseas. Never underestimate the value of a thoughtful letter during the holidays when homesickness tends to be at its worst!

You can use this simple freebie to get you started – this printable pack has four different letter writing pages for your children to write a small note to the troops serving overseas this Christmas.


You can send your letters to:

A Million Thanks
17853 Santiago Blvd.
Villa Park, CA 92861

Operation Gratitude
Attn: Angel Cuevas
17330 Victory Blvd
Van Nuys, CA 91406

Or contact your local chapter of the USO or Operation Homefront.

To give back to military families, consider donating to:

The National Military Family Association
Fisher House
