Hope this note finds you doing well! With the holidays upon us I know you are getting ready to send out your holiday cards. It would be great if you could include our military so far away from home and those injured and under care in our hospitals.
Here are two addresses for you. The first address goes to the Red Cross who will ship your card overseas. The deadline to send that card is December 3rd — so please don’t wait on that one. The second address goes to an injured member of our military.
Holiday Mail For Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
A Recovering American Soldier
c/o Walter Reed National Military Medical Center
8901 Rockville Pike
Bethesda, Maryland 20889
[UPDATE: Letters addressed to “A Recovering American Soldier” are rejected for security reasons. Walter Reed suggests using the first address (Holiday Mail for Heroes). http://www.snopes.com/politics/christmas/walterreed.asp ]
It will make someone’s day for sure! Feel free to pass this info along.
Have a great day … Marla Turner, NSDP Secretary
