The last box I sent to a deployed service member went out the first week of March. I received a notice that all mail was suspended because of the corona virus. The notice went on to say that most service personnel were confined to bases in addition to losing correspondence through mail. The chaplains asked for prayers for the men and women. Some had access to the internet to contact family. Those in remote areas were isolated in a new way. A chaplain in Saudi just had a relaxation in restrictions. However, since my husband and I are in the “senior” age group, our sons have requested we restrict our movements. Until things get better, I will hold off shopping and post office visits. Many of you from previous wars know the feeling of lack of mail from home. We hold all these deployed service personnel in our hearts and prayers. It’s the best we can do for them.
