July 24, 2019 / By Elric Question:
I want someone I can send care packages, letters, and stuff to over seas. I am 15 and all the websites I get on you have to be 18. Do you know of any websites that don't have a age requirement?? Thanks!

We used occasionally get stacks of letters from schools. You might start there. Have one of your teachers (history, civics, English) do some of the legwork. You won't be able to pick a sailor or soldier, but you can let them know you would like to keep in touch. They might have to write to you at your school, but that's a start.
Keep letters light. Don't ask questions you think might be classified. For example, don't ask them where they are. It's not even a good idea to ask them what they do. Don't ask if they've been injured, or if they've killed anybody. Don't get into political discussions -- that includes when the war's going to be over, what the Iraqi/Afghan people think about us, stuff like that. If you're not sure if you should ask a question, you might start it, "If you don't mind my asking..." or "If you can tell me..." I was in the Navy 25 years, and I still use both of those a lot.
Once you establish a line of communication, you may find that they'll volunteer stuff you weren't sure you could ask. That's ok.
What can you talk about? What you're doing in school, how you're doing in school, maybe patriotic assemblies, maybe something your family did over the weekend. Something like...
"The weather's turned warm here. Last weekend we had a barbeque in our backyard. It wasn't anything really great, just hotdogs and hamburgers. Mom makes the burgers. I don't know what she puts in them, but they're fantastic. Dad let me cook a couple hotdogs. I dropped one. Scraps, he's our dog, got to eat it. It wasn't given to him. He got it almost before it hit the ground.
"This is my first year in high school. Right now I'm getting ready for finals. My favorite subject is...."
"I have to go study now. Thank you for your service. Take care of yourself."
Honestly, some of the neatest letters I got were from kids I coached on the city recreation department swim team the last two summers before I joined the Navy.

Go to the LiveJournal community in the first post.
Go there. TRUST ME, there are people who are so "dedicated" and a lot are really too negative for my tastes. I remember seeing once a post about this girl who used to degrade herself on purpose by eating her own vomit just to make herself not eat. Yeah pretty f*cking sad. You'll get an essays-worth over there, just try not to let it influence you
Once you get to the site click "Where to Send" at the top of the page. Then on the left hand side of the screen will be tons of units that need stuff. It will give you a description of some things they need and you can always throw in whatever you want.
Also, if your sending a care package, I suggest you go to the post office and get the apo/fpo flat rate boxes. They are $11.95 for shipping and the boxes are free of charge. It's a discounted price since your sending it to military. You will also have to get customs forms. If you ask someone at the post office they can give you these items. Also, customs forms can be pretty tricky the first time you fill them out. They were for me and now I'm a pro at sending them cuz I send a package to my husband weekly. There's boxes on the customs forms that don't need to be filled out. Just make of list of everything you have in the package and a post office worker can help you fill it out.

Because you are a minor it 's for your own protection that you are not allowed to contact servicemen and servicewomen. However, you can, with your parents permission, volunteer at VA hospitals, USO and Red Cross centers. Websites like Any Soldier.com, Soldiers Angels.org, Kitchen Table Gang, Veterans Voices.org, Welcome Back Veterans.org, or the Wounded Warriors Project.org. are always looking for help.
There is one site that will allow minors, such as boy scout/girl scout troops, etc to send e-mails.
"Children can write to our troops directly via email at a special account we have created just for them. Should you/they wish to receive a possible reply to their email, they should also include their email address at the bottom of their email as a part of their signature. We can then forward the information to the participating military service members and their commands. However, because you will be acting as their guide for this program, you will want to register in order to have your troop or class participate. Together we can find the projects that will be the most beneficial to the children and our military service members."

On this website you have to be 18, but you can have your parents fill out the form. PLEASE. Just do it yourself and say they did it for you. Good luck :D

You can have your parents do the pen-palling until you turn 18. Then you can continue on with your favorite killer.

Originally Answered: Military translator, does it even exist? How useful would it be for a trilingual in the military?
To be enlisted you only need to be a legal permanent resident with a green card. Only officers have to be American citizens.
If this is the case then you can join the military. And since you speak Arabic I'm sure there are a bunch of bonuses (more pay, or enlistment bonuses for speaking one language, etc) and the Army could have lots of use for you.
Talk to recruiters from all branches (Marines, US Army, Navy, Air Force) and see which ones offer the best deals. Do your own researcher online because recruiters tend to lie and feed you all the stuff you want to hear.
