September's Nice On The 9th is dedicated to the brave men and women who are serving (or who have served in the past) in the military.
-Caleb's daddy, NUMEROUS relatives and friends, and many other brave men and women have served in the military (or are still currently serving). Come write letters to someone who is currently deployed or who has proudly served their country in the past. If you have someone in mind who could use some extra love, please PM me. I will only be sharing first names and any info you think would be helpful (years/conflicts served, hobbies, etc) with our letter-writing crew.
