Your message to the troops

If you want to remember U.S. troops on the front lines this holiday season - time is running out. The U.S. Postal Service says today's the last day to send holiday letters and packages to military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan. You have another week to send holiday mail to other U.S. military locations, overseas.

So, this morning on the Heidi show - we want to hear your message to the troops. Post your thoughts here and Heidi will read some of them in the Newsroom between 10 and 11am ET.
