Silver Hawks Thank a Troop Mission

By South Bend Silver Hawks | November 12, 2013 6:41 AM ET

Your Silver Hawks want to give thanks this season to troops serving the country! The Silver Hawks are asking for the fantastic fans to help send messages of appreciation. For every letter received the Silver Hawks will donate two tickets to a local military person to attend the Memorial Day game on May 26th.  To get started, read the guidelines below, decorate the special Swoop template, and write what you are thankful for. Mail your letter to the Silver Hawks Front Office by Monday, November 25th so your messages can be sent to the troops for the holidays.

All the letters will be sent together in the same envelope, or box, so it is important to follow these guidelines:

Be creative! Color and decorate Swoop as creatively as you like, give thanks to the Troops, talk about you, and let them know their service does not go unnoticed. Do not use glitter, confetti, or anything that is not securely attached to the letter.

Only include positive messages. Any negative messages will be discarded. Include your address or email address if you wish. Most military will write back to you!

*Attention parents and/or teachers of young children: If children are too young to include a message of thanks, please write one on their behalf so the service members get a message along with a drawing.

Mail the Swoop template to the Silver Hawks Front Office no later than November 25, 2013.
