FREEDOM WRITERS

Below is a description of Operation PAL, a group that encourages citizens to pray for and write to injured Marines. This is from the Web site: operationpal.com. Below this post is the address to send your cards and letters as well as a link for names of some of the injured Marines you can pray for and write to. Thanks for keeping them in your prayers.

OPERATION PAL
Our injured Marines need your support through Prayers and Letters. We invite you to participate in this project as an individual or as an organization to send much needed prayers, letters and cards to the Marines who have been injured or become ill while serving in combat zones, as well as Marines that have recently served, and then been injured or become ill.
Support for these outstanding Marines from the public is paramount to recovery. Each journey can be long and is often painful. You can help make a difference in the lives of these young men and women. Send a “Thank You” today.

Family, friends, Marines and military personnel are encouraged to notify Operation PAL™ of injured or ill Marines and Navy Corpsmen to request support through the program.

How the Project Works

Over 10,000 cards and letters were delivered to Marines and Navy Corpsmen in the first year of the all-volunteer operation. To assure privacy, your letters and cards are addressed to the first name of each Marine and then mailed to a MarineParents.com address. Volunteers then sort the cards and letters and mail them in packets to each individual Marine. Volunteers work daily to add Marines and update their status toward recovery on the public web site.

We need you to send each of these Marines a card or letter and add them to your prayer lists. The list of Marine names and status updates are available on the web site. Please check the list frequently for additions and names that have been removed.

Send your cards and letters to our Georgia-based office. Cards should be addressed as follows:

Marine’s Name and Company
c/o Operation PAL™
PO Box 670328
Marietta, GA 30066
