Project Update – June 2, 2014

Yesterday I got some very nice feedback on our book.  I thought I would share it here.  I want you to know that the people who receive Words For Warriors really like and appreciate the book.  This came from a veteran (Army Ranger).

“I got the book today.  Thank you so much. I’ll put it in a special place to display and share with my friends.  Read it from front to back already.  Outstanding, incredible, emotional but motivating and uplifting!  Thank you so much!”

“OK, my table is a cluster, but it’s my cluster!  This is where everything has a meaning including the rocks.  I will keep it snug against another important book of mine.”

Well there you have it!  If you’ve contributed to the Words For Warriors Project, you know your letter was definitely appreciated.  If you’re considering contributing to the second edition, please take a few minutes now to pen a few lines.  You don’t have to write like Hemingway, just a few lines from the heart is all it takes!

 

Project Update – May 7, 2014

I’m very happy to report that the book was sent off to the printer yesterday.  Just a little longer and I’ll have a box of books on my doorstep and I can begin phase two of this project.  I have created a partial distribution list and will go to the post office today to get mailers so I can address them and have them ready to go once I have the books in hand.  No delays…I want Words For Warriors out there ASAP!

I met the most interesting man yesterday.  I heard him say he had been in the Navy.  He joined up when he was very young.  I’m guessing he’s a WWII veteran.  I gave him one of the Grateful American coins I carry around and we ended up having a great conversation.  He gave me a couple of books of his and we exchanged information.  In a few weeks, I’ll go back to visit him with a copy of Words For Warriors for his library.  He seems eager to chat and from a few of the stories he told me I think a letter from him would be a marvelous addition to the Words For Warriors Project.

Don’t forget, I’m still collecting letters.  If you have people in your life who you think would enjoy being part of this project, please direct them here.  The more letters I get the better the next edition of Words For Warriors will be!

Let our veterans know their hard work is appreciated!
