American soldiers around the world are receiving heartfelt hope and encouragement from listeners of Spirit FM thanks to the “Letters From Home” campaign, running now through the end of October. Spirit FM, serving Lynchburg, Charlottesville, Blacksburg and other parts of Virginia, is partnering with its local Veterans Care Center to send notes of appreciation and gratitude to soldiers in all branches of the U.S. military. Last year, more than 3,000 letters were sent to troops everywhere, Doug Day, Spirit FM’s General Manager said.
“This is our opportunity to thank and show love to the brave men and women serving all of us by defending our nation around the world,” Day added. “To see the community rally around ourmilitary and their families is so special because it gives our troops a taste of home.”
To send a “Letters From Home” note, listeners should visit www.spiritfm.com and download a free digital “Love Notes” form. Schools, churches, and other organizations are participating, as well as individuals and families, Day said.
