Now: Write a letter to support our troops!
Soldiers who are headed to Kuwait cannot use Facebook or other social media to identify themselves since ISIS monitors social media and could threaten the soldiers' families here at home. Let's show them our support by writing a letter thanking them for their service. Letters will be mailed with a care package in early January. Please bring your letters to the Law Offices of James Murphy, 8302 Office Park Drive, Douglasville 30134 by January 1st to be included.
