In the book Hansi The Girl Who Left the Swastika I came across an interesting statement about the Nazi Youth.
Mail helped to keep the war going. As everybody knew, headquarters had ordered that in case of emergency, mail must be delivered even if food must be left behind. The boys could stand hunger as long as they had mail.
~Maria Anne Hirschmann
Although that seems a bit extreme, I think that mail is still important to our American soldiers today.
Veterans Day is next Sunday, November 11.
Do you know someone in the military to mail a card/letter/package to?
