Once again, Stars and Stripes is here to help you send free Holiday Messages to your family and friends. Messages will appear online (and overseas in the print newspaper if you choose), so your loved ones will be able to see your message no matter where they’re deployed or stationed. (Messages sent to recipients located in the U.S. will only appear online and not in print.)
Sending a message is easy! Visit http://holidaymessages.stripes.osd.mil/, Click Submit Message and then select either Text or Picture Message. Enter your message and submit — that’s it. Once your message has been approved for publication, you can also search or browse messages by edition or recipient name. Click on the publication tabs or the Find Messages button.
Messages received by November 28 will appear in the newspaper edition of your choice (Europe, Mideast or Pacific) on December 17th. Any message submitted after November 28 will appear online only and not in print.
Submit a holiday message for your family and friends stationed or deployed overseas to find in the pages of Stars and Stripes !
