A soldier's life can often be a lonely one, and it's with that in mind that Pioneer Trail introduces us to a new feature and set of goals to complete: Soldier's Pen Pal. Flintlock has apparently written a letter to Fanny, asking if her students would be available to become pen pals with his soldiers to boost their morale. You'll be able to help you own in-game children become pen pals with soldiers via new goals and a new structure that must be built on your Homestead. Let's get started!

Along with these goals, there are also new collections to complete, including one that offers you a July 4th Crate for completing it. If nothing else, this gives you something to shoot for after completing these goals, which will likely take long enough as it is. We wish you the best of luck in completing these goals in your game!
