SHOW them you care this Christmas!
There are more than 100 troops from Suffolk who will miss Christmas at home with their loved ones this year as they are still serving for their country in war torn Afghanistan.
By sending a 'bluey', so-called because of the blue aerogrammes traditionally sent to those in the armed forces, it will make such a difference to the soldiers and give them that vital morale boost at this time of year, which is so often associated with home and family.
Soldiers from the 4 Regiment Army Air Corps, based in Wattisham, need your Christmas wishes and blessings as they face spending this festive season in dangerous conditions.
An MOD spokesman said: “Messages of support from family, friends and the wider public are a great comfort to all those serving abroad, particularly those on operational duty at a time when thoughts are inevitable with those at home.”
We will publish your messages of support for all the servicemen and women abroad and we will also keep you up-to-date with their feedback and see what it is really like out there at this tough time of year.
