Here in the U.S. there are addresses set up for people to mail to ``Any soldier'' or to ``Any sailor'' in Operation Desert Storm. The idea is that people will send supportive letters, news from home, etc. to the troops even if they don't necessarily know anyone over there.
It seems however, that some people are a little more specific in their addressing of the letters. Letters have been received addressed to...
Any young soldier
Any young single soldier
Any single medical officer
I suppose a weaker-willed person than I would attempt a line here about ``Uncle Sam's Lonely Hearts Club'' but I'm going to refrain.
