    flag and whOur Pen Pal Heroes Program! american bald eagle

    A) Purpose: The "Our Pen Pal Heroes" Program began back in 2006, when our class decided to write letters to soldiers overseas who were serving our country. The program was created for the sole purpose of supporting our brave men and women overseas, through letters of friendship, encouragement, and small care packages. The program is not political, nor sides with any particular opinion of our past or current country's international issues.
