Default Pen pals and care packages?

It's an odd request but I've done it once before and enjoyed it.

I'm simply looking for someone to be pen pals with and send care packages to. Last time I did this I went through the Manhattanville My Soldier program but they kinda take FOREVER to send you a new person and address once the first one has come back home from a deployment. I go back to school in a week and I am in desperate need of something to keep me occupied during class (enter:letter writing).

Thought maybe someone on here knew of a good avenue for me to persue this through, was themselves about to get deployed and wanted a pen pal, or knew of someone who might like a pen pal.

Try organizations like Any Soldier or Soldier's Angels. (Google them and they will come up). Both trustworthy organizations that respond quickly in getting Soldiers adopted.
