Hey Gents,

Something we should all do for the Holidays!!!! A way to show our troops our thoughts are with them. Don't Think About It, Just Do IT!!!!!!


This request came from the wife of one of our heroic vets...


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 these wonderful special people who have sacrificed so much would get.


A Great Idea!!!



Send to:

A Recovering American soldier

c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center

6900 Georgia Avenue, NW

Washington , D.C. 20307-5001

According to information on the Engineer Forum, Walter Reed MC no longer accepts letters or packages addressed to "a recovering US soldier".

Holiday Cards to Wounded and Recovering Soldiers


Walter Reed Army Medical Center officials want to remind those individuals who want to show their appreciation through mail to include packages, letters, and holiday cards addressed to 'Any Wounded Soldier' or 'A Recovering American Soldier' that Walter Reed cannot accept these packages in support of the decision by then Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Transportation Policy in 2001. This decision was made to ensure the safety and well being of patients and staff at medical centers throughout the Department of Defense.


In addition, the U.S. Postal Service is no longer accepting "Any Service Member" or "A Recovering American Soldier" letters or packages. Mail to "Any Service Member" that is deposited into a collection box will not be delivered.


Instead of sending an Any Wounded Soldier letter or package to Walter Reed, please consider making a donation to one of the more than 300 nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping our troops and their families listed on the "America Supports You" website.


I planned to send a few cards too.
