    Does anyone know of a way to send a message or letter so that it gets to every signle, or as many as possible, military personnel?

    Huh. My gut wants to tell me this won't be really possible. I doubt you can even do it within a single branch. But subscribing to this to hopefully learn something new.

    A YouTube video? If it is heartfelt and unique perhaps, it could get picked up and go viral.

    That will not be possible unless you work at the Pentagon. And even then, it will have to be forwarded through each branch, command, etc. Did you think the military's email system was that unsecure?

    Well, it's a letter that could be construed as contraversial, and I don't want the government to shoot it down before soldiers see it.

    Short answer is, there isn't a mechanism in place for that. Those soldiers are "the government."

    You could fly around the world in a plane with the message attached on a banner?

    Post it here, I'll let my Illuminati connections know. Should get out by Friday, or there is a 50% refund offer.

    Oh, wait, I know.
    Just tell them you have an inheritance, and just need a safe place you can use to transfer the money. You'll let them keep $50,000 of course for their trouble. Sadly, to get the money, you just need $500, as you're broke and there are fees that must be paid up front to the estate before you can have it.

    I understand what you mean, pacman, the correct wording would be "Higher authorities that want to squash dissent". Granted, I'm not inciting treason or munity or anything, but I am trying to spread the word on a topic that all soldoers need to know, but aren't being told.

    As I said, the mechanism you seek does not exist.

    Why not post an open letter?

    I am thankful that it does exist as our troops do not need unsolicited mail messing with their morale. They have enough of a burden already.

    I'm certain it will have little value.

    You could send a "Letter To The Editor" of your local newspaper, post it on YouTube or on Facebook. If done well, it would go viral on its own merit.

    Or, PM me a copy. I have three sons currently serving in the military and will send it to them. Hey, it's a start. Right?

    You mentioned the letter is for 'soldiers'. Is it specifically for Army Soldiers or do you mean to include Air Force Airmen, Navy Sailors and Marines? Dang. Now I'm curious. Can you post your letter here?
