Posted on 10/23/2009 4:46:22 PM PDT by SandRat
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23, 2009 The American Red Cross again will sponsor a national Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign to receive and distribute holiday cards to servicemembers, veterans and their families in the United States and abroad.
The card campaign includes those working and receiving care at Walter Reed Army Medical Center here.
A special P.O. Box address will be published the first week of November online at http://www.redcross.org/holidaymail.
In the meantime, people shouldnt send cards to Walter Reed unless they are addressed to a specific wounded warrior.
Due to security restrictions, Walter Reed cannot accept generic mail addressed to A Recovering Soldier or Any Soldier. In past years, hundreds of cards were returned to senders because of generic addresses, many sent in response to misleading e-mails.
The American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes Inc. will partner for the third year to provide screening of all mail sent to the special P.O. Box address. Cards postmarked no later than Dec. 7 will reach servicemembers recovering at Walter Reed.

I’ll contribute to someone who sends Christmas cards.
Screw this Happy Holiday horse$hit.
Holiday cards??? Give me a break! When they decide to send Christmas cards they will have my attention.
Holiday? What Holiday?
I wanted to say that, you bastard!
Yes, we celebrate Christmas in this house, not Holiday.
The “holiday” catalogues started arriving a few weeks back. Whenever we receive such, I call the offending company and tell them what I said in my first sentence.
LOL I hate it when that happens! :)
