Veteran Pen Pal Project
S2, E4 – Are you looking for a way to teach letter writing to your kids in a way that is meaningful and blesses others? Crystal chats with Camille Deal, who tells us about an amazing program called the Veteran Pen Pal Project that the whole family can become involved in!
The Veteran Pen Pal Project is bringing back snail mail in an effort to advocate for mental health within the military community. What started as a mission to bring relationships to veterans in care facilities has grown to include military spouses and active duty service members! The Veteran Pen Pal Project is also a wonderful and impactful way for military homeschoolers to learn letter writing while making a difference in the military and veteran community.
Tune in to learn more!

She and her Army Ranger husband have two little boys and a German shepherd. Working full-time in marketing, she owns her own apparel company, Moss and Pine. She’s also a professional volunteer with It’s A Military Life, serving as the Program Manager for the Veteran Pen Pal Project – one of three programs under the IML umbrella.
