When doing your Christmas cards this year, take one card and send it to this address. If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these wonderful special people who have sacrificed so much would get.

When you are making out your Christmas card list this year, please include the following:

A Recovering American Soldier
c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue,NW
Washington,D.C. 20307-5001

If you approve, please pass it on.

  1. I posted this on an earlier thread and I am re-posting here since it seemed to belong here.


    Here are some ways to send Christmas and Holiday cards to brighten up a GI’s holiday overseas:

    USO Holiday Thank-you card (and donation)


    America Supports You, Our Military Men and Women
    – Send Thank you message to the Troops (online)


    Any Soldier.com

    Want to send your support to a Soldier in harm’s way,
    but have no idea of what to send, who to send it to, or how to send it?

    This site is great. It shows many ways to say/do/send many things to support the troops


    Xerox – Let’s Say Thanks

    – Create and Send a Printed Card


    American Red Cross
    – Holiday Mail for Heroes

    Send a CARD – Do Other Things

    Send-a-card DEADLINE is 12/10/08… HURRY!!!
