Children in particular love to receive the cards mailed just to them

A note that came with a request form for cards:

I was lucky to share in the OWH cards one of our service members had here in Afghanistan. I'm transferring this month to a new FOB so I requested boxes come to me so I can share them with the new base. I can't tell you how much we appreciate these cards, they mean the world to us and make it easy to jot a quick note to a loved one that is so much more personal than an email. Children in particular love to receive the cards mailed just to them - it keeps them involved. I send monthly cards to my nieces and nephews, they carry them around with them for hours! Thank you and everyone that donates these cards - they mean more than words can say.

Very respectfully,
J.T., US Navy, Afghanistan
