Thank you notes to thousands of deployed service-members are now on the way.

The notes, a part of The Bert Show's Big Thank You campaign.

The effort aims to provide every member of the military who is overseas for the holiday season a handwritten “Thank You” note.

The United States Postal Service came by The Bert Show Studios Thursday afternoon at radio station Q100 to pick up the 173,000 letters.

The letters are expected to arrive for the service members on Thanksgiving Day.
