It’s a great honor and a great sacrifice to serve our country. While away from civilian life, soldiers often receive letters from kids. Teachers will ask their students to write and send these letters as a show of gratitude and support for the brave men and women overseas. The results are amazing!
The beautiful thing about letters from kids is that there’s no filter. They call it like they see it! Their candid and sometimes brutal honesty can range from hilarious to utterly heartwarming and anywhere in between.
Soldier’s Letters from Kids
#1 You know you’ve made it big when you’ve got the entire dance company behind you!
Thank you so much for everything you do for us. I hope you have a happy holiday. We are keeping you in our prayers. I will never be able to repay you for protecting me. But know that it means so much to me for you doing this. Know that everybody in my dance company loves what you do. Go America!

Hi my name is Lauren. I am in 3rd grade in Muskego Elementary School. I am so happy that you are risking your life for the USA! I’m in girl scouts. My Grandpa Bob was in the navey and now he loves penuts. And my grandpa Al was in the army reservs.

I don’t know you, And this is crazy,
But you serve our country, And that’s amazing

♥ Caitlyn of TX”
While these heartfelt letters were sweet AND good for a chuckle, the next couple really pull at the heartstrings!
#10 Couldn’t have said it better myself
My name is Brandon. I’m in 7th grade, and I’m 12 years old. We really appreciate what you’ve done, because only people who are very brave could accept the responsibilities and hardships that you men and women have accepted. You have shown great bravery, strength, and morality. To be a soldier is tough work, and to think I thought football practice was hard, but you guys and gals do 5-6 times that of football when you practice. But what is truely remarkable is you are not only citizens but guardians of freedom. Sure being mayor or governor is an honor, but like I said, you are guardians, and that is the highest form of honor that, in my book, anyone with your diligence, integrity, and selflessness, anyone could receive. You’ve gotten nothing, but earned everything. Enjoy these cookies!
#11 Short and sweet and oh so true
Thank you for my life and my family.
#12 A beautiful message beautifully written!
“Dear brave American,
Thank you for your service for our great country! You and your comrades are in our prayers!
And finally, this letter was not mailed abroad but rather given to Lt. Col. Frank Dailey by an 8-year-old sweetheart at Cracker Barrel.
#14 Be sure to have the tissues nearby for this one!
My dad was a soldier. He’s in heaven now. I found this $20 in the parking lot when we got here.
We like to pay it forward in my family. It’s your lucky day!
Thank you for your service.
Whether their words are funny, appreciative or heartwarming, the letters from kids are undoubtedly a blessing to the brave soldiers serving our country. God bless our troops and the sweet children who wrote these letters!
