It’s a Military Life is so excited to welcome you all to Veteran Pen Pal Project!

What is a VPP?

A VPP is a Veteran Pen Pal who is willing to send letters to veterans as a simple act of kindness to support our veterans!

Below is our Veteran Pen Pal Project info card to share out to people interested in becoming a VPP! Feel free to print out as two-sided quarter sheet handout (post card style), and share out to your family, friends, and community members.

Everyone is welcome to participate! Are you a school, church, club, FRG, scouter, or group of volunteers wanting to give back? This is the place for you!

Please invite family and friends to our Facebook group! We would love to grow our community.

  1. I will not be able to be a pen pal after all. Please notify whomever to remove my name and email address. I regret I am not able to participate.
