Just One More Card

UPDATE: Commenter Gina tells us this is untrue, “It was published in the newspaper and also on Snopes.com that these letters will not be delivered.  I think that really bites!” 

However, John Carney an editor at a Shelbyville newspaper told me he wrote a similar story and provided this address to send a card to:

We Support You During Your Recovery!
c/o American Red Cross
P.O. Box 419
Savage, MD 20763-0419

If you’re mailing Christmas cards this year, here’s one more you could send:

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

Whether you’re opposed to or support these wars (my vote: Iraqi – notsomuch, Afghanistan – yes), these soldiers sacrificed their health and time with family and friends to serve this country.  A $.41 cent stamp to send a holiday greeting with a little handwritten message inside could mean a lot. 

Merry Christmas!

    I hope this clears up any confusion. I don’t want to be a Grinch.
