Anyone come across these folk and can speak for the success or otherwise?

Adopt A Squaddie

Personally I find 'adopt' a bit condescending, but I suppose that a decent box of gizzits from well-wishers would overcome that

It makes for a catchy name, which will spark interest. Penpals were really popular in WW1 & 2, so why not now?

I'm sure that there are plenty of filthy scutters out there frothing at the thought of their very own squaddie - and plenty of squaddies who are more than happy of the attention!

The 'adopters' will soon dry up when they realise all the food and beer is gone, their children have been violated, the bog is blocked by a monster turd with eyes and fangs and to top it all, some dirty ****** has wiped his knob on the Laura Ashley curtains!!!

Any chance of them branching out and starting an 'Adopt an Ex Squaddy'?
I'd be very happy to receive a few shoeboxes stuffed with gizzits every month. I wouldn't turn my nose up at food parcels and letters from fat desperate birds either.

Im a member of the group Adopt A squaddie on facebook, and also another group called Shoeboxes Fortroops. I have been sending boxes out to the lads & lasses for over a year now. Has proved to be a great success

Thanks and Good luck to them I say. As long as it doesn't take cash that would otherwise go to the wounded or Welfare for Families I don't see any harm in this whatsoever.
