Write a Member of our Troops

Write a Member of our Troops

From The Great American Handbook

Syndicated columnist Abigail Van Buren, also known as "Dear Abby," has used her influence for years to promote goodwill and cheer to the men and women of the Armed Forces during the holiday season. Each year special mailing addresses were created so Abby's loyal readers could send personal holiday greetings to military personnel around the world.

Prior to 9-11-01, the Pentagon encouraged civic-minded civilians to reach out and show their appreciation to our men and women in uniform with personal letters. Unfortunately, security measures have curtailed most letter writing programs, so Abby has now gone digital. Patriotic Americans can now send email messages to our troops by visiting OperationDearAbby.net. The service is quick, easy and free.

Write to a Military Newspaper

A great way to communicate your appreciation to our troops at large is to write a letter to the editor of a service-oriented newspaper. The Army Times, Navy Times, and Air Force Times all operate from the same address:

6885 Commercial Drive,

Springfield, Virginia 22159.

The Stars & Stripes, a daily newspaper published exclusively for U.S. military stationed overseas, has two locations:

write to the editor of the Far East edition at:

Pacific Stars & Stripes,

APO JA 96337.

Reach the editor of the European edition at: Stars & Stripes,

APO AE 09211.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
