Our mission is to support our nation’s cherished veterans by providing them with uplifting letters and the opportunity to form meaningful relationships. Our veteran participants possess a wide variety of military experiences - they come from all service branches, job specialities, and time periods. Your participation, even if just one letter, will mean the world to your veteran.
A simple letter is an act of kindness.
It’s a Military Life’s Veteran Pen Pal Project is a year-round, nationwide project centered around a simple act of kindness – sending a letter of gratitude to our nation’s heroes!
The Veteran Pen Pal Project connects veteran communities such as veteran centers, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and VA hospitals with pen pals around the world.
We are asking all current volunteers, potential volunteers and anyone interested in participating in the Veteran Pen Pal Project to help us reach our program goal of 60,000 cards and letters for Operation Holiday Salute!
In partnership with Veteran’s Last Patrol, this program is a special part holiday initiative that collects and distributes cards for Veterans in hospice care all across the country.
Please send all holiday cards to:
Veteran Last Patrol
140B Venture Blvd.
Spartanburg, SC 29306
