     If you would like to send a deployed service member a message, you can do so through one of these sites.  Concerns about the safety of regular mail delivery prompted the military to suspend the "To Any Service Member" letter-writing campaign.

"Because I have the privilege of working with Idaho's veterans on a daily basis, I see firsthand the sacrifices they made to protect the freedoms we enjoy.  Only a few of us have that opportunity, however, and it is important that we all remember the price they paid.  To me, the museum is not about glorifying war.  It is about teaching the youth of today, and future generations, what took place, where, and why it happened."
