To honor U.S. military personnel and increase community morale, Xerox Corporation has created Let’s Say Thanks, a national program designed to deliver millions of cards to servicemen and women overseas with messages of support from home.
On June 26, 2006, Xerox launched the Web site www.LetsSayThanks.com to allow the public to send personal messages to support the men and women stationed overseas. The messages are sent on postcards designed by children from across the country.
The postcards, depicting patriotic scenes and hometown images, were selected from a pool of entries from children across the country.
Local Veterans of Foreign Wars Junior Vice Commander Gene Tucker recounted how he felt when receiving word from home while serving overseas.
“During the Viet Nam War I remember receiving books and care packages from children all across the United State. It was an amazing and heartfelt experience,” Tucker said. “The books meant a lot to me because I’m a voracious reader but what really struck home with me was homemade sweets. To think people would spend their time and money to make and send me and my compatriots something good to eat was wonderful.”
