Indianapolis With thousands of troops deployed overseas and thousands more readying for deployment, The American Legion has re-launched a free, easy way to thank them for their service on the eve of Veterans Day, November 11.
Electronic greeting cards are ideal to thank all veterans, of all generations, who have served in the US armed forces.
"Veterans and those serving in the military services today need to see that there are friends and family members who are proud of their sacrifices for America," John Brieden, national commander of The American Legion said.
Anyone who has an e-mail account can receive the special cards. Creating the card is quick at the American Legions website, www.legion.org. "Our troops serving overseas often have access to e-mail and they look forward to the cards," Brieden said.
The American Legion site offers e-mail cards representing each military service, along with the service song that plays when the card is opened. Each card provides plenty of space to compose a personal message.
The free service is being offered for the fifth consecutive year. Cards may be sent now through November 12.
Greeting cards may be sent directly to active duty service men and women if their military e-mail addresses are known.
