The Manhattanville My Soldier bracelet is available only to those who are participating in the program. The bracelets are not for sale.
When a person enrolls in the My Soldier program, they agree to adopt a soldier to whom they will send letters. They download or receive a “starter packet” and agree to follow a few simple measures of support. They may also request their free My Soldier bracelet to wear in support of their soldier. In other words, the Manhattanville My bracelet represents the soldier who is sacrificing for freedom and democracy as well as the pledge the civilian has made to write to him.
Now that the Starter Kits are available online, we are asking participants who would like to receive the My Soldier bracelet to write to the My Soldier program with a self-addressed stamped business envelope with two stamps (postage required to cover its thickness) and a note requesting a bracelet.
My Soldier staff members will then mail a bracelet (one per envelope please) back to participants in the SASEs. This will help us reduce our postage costs as well as the margin of error in addressing packages so that more participants receive their bracelets in a prompt, efficient manner.
We appreciate your understanding as we make essential changes to the foundation of our program.
Again, to receive your My Soldier bracelet, please send a self-addressed stamped envelope with 2 stamps (postage required for its thickness) to:
Manhattanville My Soldier Department
2900 Purchase Street
Purchase, NY 10577
