I remember when Gunner was deployed to Bosnia, we had no internet connection, very few phone calls, and our only contact were letters. We were stationed in Germany, and I religiously read the Stars and Stripes paper each day to keep up with what was happening over there.
On Valentine's Day, we could buy an ad in the paper to send our husband's a message. Of course I had to do it, because I could only imagine if he were the only one.
Fast forward a hundred years, and now it is a service that is provide by Stars and Stripes for free!
If you have a loved one overseas, go here and send a message, free of charge. You can even upload a picture, and select which edition, whether you want it in print, or only online.
So if you'll be apart over Valentine's Day (I'm starting to think Gunner plans this, lol), make sure you let them know you are thinking of them (and then go get yourself a really nice present!)!
