Take a moment and send some good thoughts to our men and women overseas.

Today on the News at Noon I learned about "Postcards to Patriots."

It's a campaign where you can send a positive message on a postcard to the hundreds of Idaho military troops around the world.

The program is a partnership with the Mountain Home AFB Airmen and Family Readiness Center.

Adecco is also on board, in fact, it's the company that will pick up the postage to mail the postcard.

There are drop off boxes at both Adecco General Staffing branches (in Boise on the corner of Front and 6th and in Meridian between Meridian and Main near the Watertower).

If you need the cards picked up you can call Janet at (208) 887-0877 or Vonna at (208) 377-4900.

There is an important deadline: In order to get the postcards shipped overseas before Independence Day please have them ready by June 6th.
