Where No Hero is Forgotten

Writing our Troops

Writing our Troops











December 23, 2017

Writing our heroes -our wounded and sick warriors & deployed troops who always need hugs is a bucket list experience ! Be original … Teachers, we prefer scribbles and creativity to coloring pages where every student colored in the same picture and wrote the same note … on vacation ? Make some now for New Years accepted through our new date January 5th !  Happy New Year ! 🎉






1.Our mailbox is empty and this is a super project for any child or teenager to understand who a hero is and how our freedom comes at great sacrifice . My son’s father was a USAF veteran and we lost him to brain cancer a few years ago. The kids are the real heroes left behind missing their Mom or Dad and personal hero .💙 But even my son will be writing some cards to troops overseas and our wounded that will be packed into care packages . He does this in honor of his Dad in Heaven.





💚In a positive way – your children and you can reach out to deployed troops and wounded and even our brave sick veterans who need a hug and smile . 🇺🇸

Please make your cards personal with at least 2-3 sentences on each card, your drawing or letter as we want your written surprises to feel like REAL support and a real Homefront Hug unless it is from a child . 😎 Morale is key when deployed overseas or healing from a wound or serious illness .


2. Please write your notes ( and you can draw pictures too and add a message) to a wounded or sick veteran , nurse , doctor , therapist ,or medic for Operation Healing Angel of Homefront Hugs and/or for deployed troops AND always put on a corner of each card, letter or banner (or envelope if sealing) WHO the card or letter is for ! 📬

📌 ” For a Wounded Hero ”
📌 ” For a Sick Veteran Hero ”
📌 ” For a Hero Medic ”
📌 ” For a Hero Nurse ”
📌 ” For a Hero Med Tech ”
📌 ” For a Hero Chaplain ”
📌 ” For a Hero Social Worker ”
📌 ” For a Hero Therapist ”
📌 ” For a Deployed Hero ”


YES ! You can put them all in one enevelope and ship but don’t forget to label somewhere on each envelope or card for WHOM each one is ! 


We have so many troops for adoption too if you are interested or have a group wanting to adopt a group – like a business, social or athletic club, place of worship , neighborhood friends , debate team , classroom or school !

Just email us :
