EVERGREEN MISSION for Veteran's Last Patrol:
Veteran's Last Patrol's mission is to serve veterans by bringing new friendships, honor ceremonies, & emergency assistance while in hospice care.
The organization is averaging a veteran's honor ceremony a week all over the country. At each ceremony they like to give a bunch of thank you cards to the veteran being honored.
Here's your mission! Write out generic thank you cards to veterans and send them to Veteran's Last Patrol. They will make bundles from the cards they receive and present them to our veterans.
Use whatever you'd like: thank you cards, scenic cards, postcards ... or better yet... MAKE cards and write notes of gratitude. Keep in mind these are for are for elderly and/or ailing veterans. Dear Veteran, Dear Hero as your salutation will work. Have children, students, young artists?? 🎨 Get them involved! Our veterans would love bright patriotic pictures, military branch logos, whatever they are inspired to create! Do you manage a group of people at your company? This is a meaningful office project too!
If you're sending more than one card (which is encouraged) no need to send each one individually - send them all in one envelope/package.
Send them to:
Veteran's Last Patrol
140B Venture Blvd
Spartanburg, SC, 29306

“Thank you again, Janine. Lt Col Thomas Bryan Crouch thoroughly enjoyed getting many birthday cards over the last few weeks. He couldn’t believe they came from so many different states and so many people of all ages. He asked to please let everyone know how much he appreciated people taking time to not only send kind words but to pay $.55 per card. He just couldn’t comprehend people would spend so much on an old man they didn’t know....One young student wrote “boy you are old, please tell us how you did it.” What a great chuckle!”

WWII Vet Kenneth Boyd LOVED all of your cards. Here's one of the facebook posts from his party!! His nurse was kind enough to share these photos and said he truly enjoyed hearing from each one of you! YOU made his 100th birthday extra-extra special!! Here is the post with all your comments.
Phlash Phelps (Sirius XM 60's on 6) and I have been doing a Livestream Show. We started it as a way to bring our followers together during the quarantine - but now it's taken on a life of its own. 🙃 Aside from some crazy stuff - that I can't really explain - you'd just have to watch, we raise awareness and donations for various charities. Next show TBD.
