A Brief Beginners Guide to Forces Pen Pals
Compiled by Vinny Appleby

Define: Armed Forces Pen Pals

Armed forces pen pals are people you write to in the armed services, such as the navy, army and air force.

How are forces pen pals different from other pen pals?

When you come down to basics, they aren't. Armed forces pen friends are still people you get to know by email perhaps with the intention of getting to know them face to face later. However, it has to be remembered that forces pen pals are doing a very difficult job, so you have to be aware of this when writing. This mainly means not discussing any war that they are involved in, and concentrating on news from home.

Are forces pen pals harder to talk to than other pen pals?

No, of course not. Armed forces penpals are just normal people like you, and they have chosen to serve their country.

Will I always be able to reach my forces pen pals by email?

Usually, unless they are specifically involved in battle or security situations.

Where is a good place to find armed forces pen pals?

There are various places, but I always recommend this: Forces Pen Pals. This is a link to a site called Military where you will find very large numbers of forces pen pals ready to contact. You can join this site for free, and there are paid upgrade options too.

Do forces pen pals ever marry their pen pal?

There are many cases where this happens. I am myself the son of such a marriage. However this does not mean that you have to pursue a romantic relationship with your armed forces pen pal unless you want to. There are lots of beautiful friendships happening too.
