ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Kirtland Air Force Base is organizing a campaign to send letters to deployed service members over the holidays.
Last year, they sent over 200,000 letters from all over the U.S. — and this year, they want to send even more.
The deadline to drop off letters is Nov. 22, in order to allow them time to organize and package them up to be sent.
Letters can be dropped off on Kirtland Air Force Base at Kirtland Outdoor Recreation or at any of the Kirtland Federal Credit Union locations. Kirtland also has letter-writing supplies on base.
