In the spirit of the holidays and pay-it-forward seasin as well, when you are mailing out your Christmas cards this year, can you send one to a recovering American soldier at Walter Reed Army Medical Center?

Address them to:

HOLIDAY MAIL FOR HEROES
P.O. BOX 5456
CAPITOL HEIGHTS, MD 20791-5456

You don't have to get all involved just sign your name and wish them a happy holiday season and say thank you for your service and get well soon.

Thanks for sharing this. They must be postmarked by Dec 10 or they won't be delivered.

Thanks for adding that info! I knew I was sending my bunch in one big envelope like they suggested.

Great idea! Does anyone know if there is a similar program for Canadian veterans?

And for those in Canada, you can leave a msg on the DND msg board or there are other instructions as well.
