Sorry to hear that man. Although it isn't much of a compensation, at least you're doing your country proud, even at one of the worse times of the year to be risking your ass.
I'm extremely proud of you OP. If I had the address I'd send you something! It would say along the lines of "thank you for serving our country. I really do appreciate you. You are amazing! I'm sure you have put so much time and energy into making our world go round. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!".
I'm not saying that it doesn't suck, but nobody joins the military for fame and recognition, he joins it b/c of the the pride and willingness to his country. It's honestly a little sad to see you post an FML about not getting a letter if in fact you actually are in the military. If everyone who serves becomes people who all they want is fame and glory, Then the U.S. Is screwed.
Forever Alone. Even in the military.
I think my comment got misplaced. But their mailing addresses are to the bases they are stationed at, which I'm positive the locals already know are there. Not to wherever they may be on a mission. I had to mail stuff to his address in Kuwait, while he was going back and forth from Iraq. The mailing address doesn't risk any more than the base being there to begin with. It's when they start giving more specific information that gets them in trouble.
