just one extra christmas card

There are some emails going around the web that say this:When you are making out your Christmas card list this year, also include one for the following address:

A Recovering American Soldier
c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20307-5001
However, it appears that Walter Reed is not setup to take any packages, letters or holiday cards through the mail.An alternate is
Operation Quiet Comfort http://operationquietcomfort.com

No envelope
No glitter or feathers
Each card must have a
written personal message

Cards are mailed to:

PO Box 700325
Plymouth, Michigan 48170

It only takes a moment and one extra card/stamp to make brave soldier feel better who may be stuck in a hospital away from their family.

PLEASE forward this information to your friend and family….let’s try to make a difference this holiday season!

    I was just at Walter Reed yesterday! My retired Marine (aka ‘Grandpa’) was in for a pacemaker and I got to visit after his surgery. It was so disheartening to see kids my age or younger wheeling around the hallways and lobbies in chairs because they were recovering from losing a limb or having major surgeries to put their bodies back together. I’m so proud of you for posting this address and will definitely be sending a few holiday cards their way!
