I hadn't heard of Let's Say Thanks until a friend emailed me the link today. It struck me as a classic "let's see if the dopes will do this" escam so I went and checked with Snopes and Hoax-Slayer who both claim it is what it claims to be.
Let's Say Thanks, BTW, is an easy and cost-free way to send a postcard to a soldier. Xerox does the printing, bundling, and shipping. It requires less than a minute if you pick a canned message, just a few moments more if you compose your own. Easy as Click, Two, Three.
If you don't like the "free" part you can always drop in to Give2theTroops.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Last word from me on metric.
