Berkmar HS Thank You Soldier Letter Campaign
Berkmar students are asking the community to participate in Q100's "BigThankYou" http://bigthankyou2013.com/ campaign, which calls for people in the Atlanta area to write letters of gratitude to deployed soldiers. With so many family members from our community serving overseas, the students here at Berkmar are very tuned in to how necessary and appreciated these personal letters are for all those serving. Berkmar invites ALL MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY to submit letters. The Web site suggests a brief letter beginning with Dear Soldier, and following with expressions of appreciaion for their service, dedication, and words of encouragement. The letters may be brief and simply begin with "Dear Soldier," and follow with a brief letter expressing appreciation for his/her service and providing words of encouragement.
