Books for Soldiers

Those serving the military don’t often have access to books. Books provide a link to home, entertainment, an escape from the loneliness of deployment.
20120917193824-soldier-reading-bookBooks for Soldiers was started by Storm Williams to provide books, CDs, DVDs to our troops. The Alpharetta Friends group collects books, etc. along with goodies, snacks, and letters to send to those serving worldwide.
Operation Paperback provides books to military and veterans hospitals in the United States, USO centers at US Airport transit points, as well as overseas. They’ve recently added a program that provides books to military families.
