Happy Thanksgiving! November 23, 2011

iwiLetter.com hopes you and your family and friends have a great Thanksgiving. No doubt 2011 has been a challenging year for many of us, but today is a day to pause and reflect upon and be thankful for what we do have. Let’s take this opportunity to be thankful for our families and our friends.

Of course, there are also many empty seats at tables across the country today. Empty seats saved for sons, daughters, husbands, wives, and parents. Empty seats of brave Americans stationed around the world fighting to protect our American way of life. Let’s not forget to pause to give thanks to these braves folks this Thanksgiving.


If you are gathered together and need a last minute idea of something to bake, and we assume you like peanut butter, cookies and bacon, then we have you covered. Here’s a great recipe for Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies!





Enjoy the cookies, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

You are about to emark on the Great Crusade June 28, 2010

On the evening of June 5th, 1944, just hours prior to the D-day landings in Normandy, copies of the letter – Eisenhower’s Order of the Day – were distributed to members of the allied forces. The meticulously crafted, highly encouraging call-to-arms was drafted by Eisenhower himself over a period of four months, and remains one of the most important documents in military history.

See the original letter right here – http://www.lettersofnote.com/2010/06/you-are-about-to-embark-upon-great.html

SUPREME HEADQUARTERS
ALLIED EXPEDITIONARY FORCE

Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!

I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!

Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

(Signed, ‘Dwight D. Eisenhower’)

 

Happy Thanksgiving! November 26, 2009

iwiLetter.com hopes you and your family and friends have a great Thanksgiving. No doubt 2009 has been a challenging year for many of us, but today is a day to pause and reflect upon and be thankful for what we do have. Let’s take this opportunity to be thankful for our families and our friends.

Of course, there are also many empty seats at tables across the country today. Empty seats saved for sons, daughters, husbands, wives, and parents. Empty seats of brave Americans stationed around the world fighting to protect our American way of life. Let’s not forget to pause to give thanks to these braves folks this Thanksgiving.

Is Anything Free in this World Anymore? May 10, 2008

Free Sign

Sometimes you get the feeling that there just isn’t anything free in this world anymore, right?  It seems that every day we are dealing with hidden fees and charges, rising gas pricing, falling stock prices, scams, the weakening U.S Dollar, more work, less pay, tighter budgets, shrinking profits, “increased costs of doing business”, housing crunch, etc.  The list goes on and on.  It’s hard enough to keep our head above water, much less even think about saving money or taking a vacation, and you can certainly forget about any chance of getting something for free, right?  Is anything FREE in this world anymore? 

 

Of course there is!  iwiLetter.com (send real letters, write online) is offering a free month of service during the entire month of May.  It’s our Memorial Day Mail Call Just visit iwiLetter.com/Military and type your letter.  We’ll print it on reclyced paper, stuff it, stamp it with a first-class stamp, and mail it anywhere in the U.S. (including U.S. Soldiers currently overseas) within 24 hours, for FREE!  It’s our way of saluting the U.S. Military and their families this Memorial Day, it’s our Memorial Day Mail Call!

There are even sites online that profile tons of free stuff each and every day!  Check them out:

http://www.TopSavings.com (formerly called TotallyFreeStuff.com)

http://www.TheFreeSite.com

http://www.free-stuff.com

So clearly, there are things that are still free.  Take advantage of them!

 

However, this all comes at a very sad and strange time when something critically needed is being offered for free, but is not being accepted.  The U.S. and U.N. are eagerly trying to freely give aid and resources to the people of Myanmmar who desperately need the help after suffering from a catostrophic cyclone.  Their government however does not currently appear to be accepting or allowing this aid and help to reach the people in desperate need.  Of course they must have their reasons, it’s just frustrating to think something is free and readily available, yet the “should be” accepting party is not interested.

“We wanted to do something special for military personnel and their families this Memorial Day.  Despite the ease and speed of e-mail, military personnel still need old-fashioned letter writing, whether it is for love letters, official business letters that demand formality or simply an appreciation for the art of letter writing. We just make letter writing and delivery more convenient.”
