About Operation Dear Abby:
Send a special message to our men and women in the military defending American freedom worldwide.

In 1967, Sgt. Billy Thompson wrote Abigail Van Buren asking for a Christmas present for our servicemembers -- "Just a letter from home," American citizens have been sending their best wishes to the troops every holiday season. "Operation Dear Abby," has brought joy to hundreds of thousands of U.S. military personnel deployed away from home around the world.

Concerns about regular mail delivery have prompted the military to suspend the letter-writing campaign...

However, Dear Abby, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the U.S. Department of the Navy's LifeLines Services Network are providing this private and secure online resource that will allow you to send a Sailor, Marine, Soldier, Airman, or Coast Guardsman a holiday greeting or message of support.

How It Works:
Supporters send messages to our servicemembers.

Servicemembers with internet access may read those messages via 'OperationDearAbby.Net'.

Servicemembers without internet access may still read messages as follows:

Company commanders that have internet access have the ability to download bulk messages to be printed and distributed according to service branch and location.
