A few years ago when my marriage ended i wanted to do something to take my mind off things, as i was alone in a country with no family(i had some good friends but as with everyone they had their own things going on too). So i signed up for adopt a US soldier…you have to register on the site to which your details have to be verified and then you get info on your given soldier which takes about 2-3 days. After a couple of days i received my soldiers details i wrote but didn’t get a reply so it was kind of a none starter which at that time looking back was probably a good thing in long run as i had a lot of changes and stuff happening.
Anyway recently a friend of mine said she wanted to write to someone in the forces so i told her about the adopt a US soldier and she now has her soldier to converse/correspond with, which prompted me to try again which i have done and upon checking my email this morning i have details of my soldier and have sent my first email.
I think this kind of thing is a great idea for all the guys a girls out there who spend alot of time away from their families and loved ones especially at this time of year.
