Send A Card To A Soldier

One of my favorite bumper stickers is the one that reads "If You Can Read This, Thank a Teacher - If You Can Read This In English, Thank A Soldier". Despite the fact that so many of us political junkies disagree on issues, the fact of the matter is that we have the right to disagree with our government, and we have the ability to protest and demonstrate against our government. Too many countries do not have that right.

For over 200 years, the men and women of our country have bravely and proudly served in the United State Armed Services, and many of them gave their lives to protect our freedoms.

This holiday season, let's take a moment to let a solider know that their commitment and sacrifice is very much appreciated.

When doing your Christmas cards this year, take one card and send it to the address below. 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.

The address is as follows:

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

This is a great idea but I tried this last year. Post office would not deliver mail that was not addressed to an individual and all the mail I sent to that address was returned.
