E-mail from Indiana Senator Tom Wyss:
Wyss encourages Hoosiers to include Indiana’s soldiers on their holiday card list
State Sen. Tom Wyss (R-Fort Wayne) today encouraged residents to join Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman’s holiday season mail campaign for troops called “Hoosier Cheer for Our Heroes.”
“When you make your card list this year, please remember Indiana servicemen and women who will be spending the holidays away from their homes and families,” Wyss said.
Skillman’s office is collecting cards and will send them to Indiana troops around the world. Those who want to participate should send cards and letters (but no money or gifts) to Skillman’s Statehouse office by Wednesday, Nov. 18, to the following address:
Office of the Lieutenant Governor
200 West Washington St.,
Indianapolis, IN 46204-2797
Wyss said Skillman’s office received about 20,000 cards for troops last year and officials hope to top that this year.
“During a season of giving, it’s important for us to remember those who are putting action behind our hopes for ‘peace on earth,'” Wyss said. “I am thankful for our troops and hope many residents will take the time to express their appreciation to them through the lieutenant governor’s wonderful program.”
