02/14/2003 - United We Stand Encourages Participation in Operation Dear Abbey

WALTHAM, MA--‘United We Stand’ at Brandeis University would like to encourage individuals of the Brandeis Community to participate in “Operation Dear Abby” by sending messages to our brave troops defending freedom and liberty world wide.

Messages can be sent via the internet at: http://anyservicemember.navy.mil/

Operation Dear Abby was started in 1967, when Sgt. Billy Thompson wrote Abigail Van Buren asking for a Christmas present for our service members -- "Just a letter from home," American citizens have been sending their best wishes to the troops every holiday season. "Operation Dear Abby," has brought joy to hundreds of thousands of U.S. military personnel deployed away from home and around the world..

United We Stand hopes that members of the Brandeis community, as well as citizens from across America will join in this project to continue to bring joy to and raise moral for our military personnel worldwide.

Please direct any questions or comment to Joshua Wiznitzer, United We Stand Secretary/PR Director at joshwiz@brandeis.edu
