And email I received "dont write british troops" WTF?

#1
So during the past couple of days I've had a lot of emails to answer but one email catched my eye. A woman wrote me that she disagrees with our programe for British Soldiers and that she even wants to start a Campaign for not supporting the troops because they would be well-paid, enjoy their jobs and just laugh at people who are writing them. But maybe you want to read the email yourself, here it is:

I wrote to a british soldier after sending parcels and xmas cards to
soldiers on the front line. It was the biggest mistake i have ever done and
i dont think women should write to soldiers, they are not victims they are
doing a job they enjoy, they get well paid and have each other for support,
which is more than some people. in fact they make fun out of the penpals and
it is just a big joke to them when women write to them, and they dont even
have the decency to let them know they have arrived home safely, after
receiving parcels, letters and numerous emails to support them. At one
stage i wanted to stop writing but felt sorry for this person, so continued
and did not even get a goodbye have arrived home safely. he just left me
without a reply for 3 weeks, so i still dont know if he is dead of injured.
The soldiers also tell lots of lies. So women beware, plus they know where
you live now. and they are not all decent human beings. I am going to
start a compaign to NOT become penpals with British soldiers.

Well I'd say there are always arrses out there who take it to the extreme and you never know if that person you are writing to is an arrse. But from my experience most of them are forever thankful. Yes, they may have your adresse, but you've got their rank, full name and servicenumber. Also you can always get a P.O Box which in most cases solves the problem....

What do you think?

I think the bitter and twisted bitch thought she had 'bagged' herself a squaddie and he wasn't interested on his return......Bunny Boiler!

Glad I'm lucky enough to have my entourage to keep me amused and don't have to rely on sour old fuglies like her!

Actually the name is pretty close and she just wrote again:

Dont write to British soldiers save your letters for the injured soldiers
they would appreciate it more. The soldiers make fun out of the penpals,
they are young men up for a laugh, and are only after one thing. wounded
soldiers sitting in hospitals with serious injuries would appreciate your
support more. You should make it clear that no woman should write to
soldiers. I did and would never do it again.
Obviously she didn't really check the website. If she had she knew that we've got a wounded program as well. Plus our Soldiers are not just males. Some of them are females and it's not just british Soldiers and we've never had problems with any of them.

I know you guys way too well. What I can do is collecting your message. Write a serious answer to her emails and I will forward them to her. NO NAME CALLING! Just write a serious email and send it to sandra.weiland@soldiersangelseurope.org put "email" in the subject line and I will send them all to her. Show her that british soldiers are different and not the way she thinks they are.

Of course she has a very valid point and anyone organising a letters/parcels to troops campaign should have the sense to recognise that valid point. If a woman writes letters and sends parcels out to support and raise morale she deserves not to have her support mocked at the very least, or her photo even added to a pig board. The recipient then letting her know he/she is safely home once more one would think a basic courtesy. Good manners cost nothing after all.
I find it very odd that anyone coordinating such a campaign can't even recognise the truth in what this woman says.

Oookay... at least you've tried to be nice. Honestly, emails like that will only make her stronger in what she believes...

Give it a rest.

I can't see anywhere that she points to a specific incident. Maybe she got upset because they didn't write back for three weeks. I spent up to 6 weeks at a time living in the desert in Afghan and the only way letters would get out is if someone was going on RnR and took them and remembered to post them.

Maybe she didn't understand squaddie humour and took a bit of banter personnaly. Without speaking to her we'll never know.

I do recognise the truth in what she says but she says that they'd all be like that. They are not. You cannot say that every single soldier is the same. They are not. What I am saying is that there are assholes out there. Some are, but not all of them. And those who sign up with us for example wouldn't sign up if they didn't need it and in the past two years I have not had a single problem with any of our Soldiers. Plus we expect nothing in return. We are happy to get a letter back but we do not expect one to get back because we know that most of them don't have the time or possibility to write back.

when soldiers get back im pretty sure they want to see their family for a while before replying to someone who sent them a parcel, even though im sure they appreciate it
