What Christmas Is All About
This year the Shallow Lake Peewee LL sent letters to our troops and from there the organization shared the address to mail cards.




Write to the Troops 2019

Thank you everyone!  The Write to the Troops program has had an overwhelming response this year.

FACT 1:  Letters and packages from Canada are like a piece of home away from home for deployed Canadian Armed Forces members.

FACT 2:  It could be argued Canadians are the most generous people on earth.

FACT 3:  Canadians showed their appreciation and respect for their military members by sending over 400,000 letters to the approximately 2,100 Canadian military members serving overseas during the holiday season.

"Letters of support and appreciation are very special to the deployed CAF members who are far away from their families and friends over the holidays. 

I want to thank each of you who took the time to reach out and send a letter to our troops," - LGen Mike Rouleau, Comd CJOC.
