Remember Our Returning Soldiers...



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 the 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 and send to the address below:


Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD. 20791-5456

All cards must be postmarked no later than Dec. 10. For more information, visit www.wramc.amedd.army.mil or www.redcross.org/holidaymail for Holiday Mail for Heroes program guidelines.

Thanks to a reader for the address correction!

Thanks for letting your readers know about this program! I worked closely with the Red Cross and Pitney Bowes on Holiday Mail for Heroes, and on behalf of my colleagues, I'd like to express my appreciation for your help in spreading the word.

Our goal was to collect 1 million cards for the troops, veterans, and military families. I'm excited to let you know that we ended up surpassing that goal! We truly could not have accomplished this without your help.

To show our thanks, the Holiday Mail team created a video for you and the other bloggers who got involved: http://blip.tv/file/1643672/
