We'll always have tons of good stuff for you to read too. So take a minute and add Honor, Duty, eMail to your feed reader, visit often and comment regularly. We'd be lonely if you didn't stop by.

About The Organization

eMail Our Military (eMOM) is a charitable organization supporting U.S. military service members through morale boosting email, letters, cards and care packages. Troop supporters can take part in a number of support projects ranging from sending eMail to a service member on a one-on-one basis to year round support projects. eMail Our Military was created in 2001 as a response to the DoD's cancellation of the "Any Service Member" and "Operation Dear Abby" mail programs. As a safe alternative, eMOM picked up where these programs left off.

eMOM's founder is a military wife, the daughter of a veteran and an avid troop supporter. The organization is composed of volunteers from all walks of life who understand that regardless of our political views, our military service members deserve our respect, support & encouragement.

How eMail Our Military Works

Using eMail, eMOM provides a safe way for people to continue the tradition of "Any Service Member" mail with a much more personal touch. Service Members register with us for support and are matched with civilians who have registered to send and show their support to our troops.

Why Choose eMail Our Military

eMOM is original! We were the 1st organization to step in after 9/11 when force protection concerns threatened to keep the support from getting to our troops. Our Code of Ethics and the security measures we have in place help us to support our troops safely. We require all of our participants to register with us, we work directly with many military commands and we never publicize the names and addresses of our service members, ships or units on the web.

Many of our military service members overseas have limited or no web access. Therefore they may never see messages posted on internet websites. They do however, have eMail and look forward to hearing news from home.

A Leader in New Media/Social Media

eMail Our Military is a leader in the new media arena. Using social media to support our America's military servicemembers is one of our specialties. We use services and sites like Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, MySpace, Utterli etc. to keep our troop supporters and servicemembers connected to each other and up-to-date with what's going on at eMOM. Additionally, we use new media/social media for strategic partnerships to bring great deals, discounts and services to our military and their families.
