Our #52things Quest this week was to Send a Postcard Overseas. When considering where to send ours to, we looked at sites such as http://www.postcrossing.com, where if you send a postcard overseas you will get one back yourself. While we thought it was a great idea, we wanted ours to make more of a difference to its recipient, and so we decided to be a bit patriotic and send ours to … our Aussie troops overseas.
The Australian Government’s Department of Defence has a division especially set up for people to show their support of our troops who are deployed on overseas operations.
If you’d like to send a postcard to the troops as well, they can be sent to:
Messages to the Troops
39 Personnel Support Battalion
Randwick Barracks NSW 2031
Or for more information, visit the Defence website at http://www.defence.gov.au/people/message_to_troops.htm. Heartfelt thanks to all our troops for helping give us the freedom that allows us to travel Australia and live life the way we do! xx
