OPERATION SOS   -    SaveOurSoldiers.US  -  Washington D.C.

We invite you to write letters of encouragement and international calling cards to be delivered to the troops.  It is one of the most simple ways that you can take action to change a person's life by writing a letter of encouragement for our troops and include an international phone card for these service persons to talk with loved ones at home.  While letters can be entered online through the tab above or mail directly to Cody Anderson in care of OPERATION SOS, PO Box 85, Blue Ridge, GA 30513, we are asking that phone cards be sent directly to President Obama at the White House ear marked for Operation SOS.
