Letters To Soldiers

BECOME A PENPAL: Volunteers needed to run the PenPal program online. We have 100's of people offering to be penpals but no volunteers. With no volunteers and no donations this year, and our founder's health declined, and her caring for her father 24/7 after his stroke, we hope our Hollidays will be wonderful with your families and that you won't forget our heroes away from home at this time of year and sponsor a soldier/marine or two to get a care package or volunteer by looking up companies that could donate. 

Happy holidays! It is the time of year for family, traditions and all things familiar. Some areas are a little uncertain this December, however, such as tax laws. Unless Congress intervenes, current laws will expire at the end of 2012. Find out what changes you can expect and what that means for your estate plans.

To help you wrap up the year, we've provided helpful tips below. Please let us know if you have any questions. And, as always, thank you for all you do for Letters to Soldiers.
