Send Holiday Cards to Wounded Soldiers at Walter Reed and Other Military Hospitals

Nancy Brown, my co-host on our BlogTalkRadio show Your Military Life, forwarded a LinkedIn comment that had been forwarded to her:

R. Scott Frothingham posted information on how holiday cards can be sent to wounded soldiers at Walter Reed and other military hospitals thanks to the American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes working with the Department of Defense.

Frothingham explained:
After the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, the U.S. Postal Service stopped accepting letters, postcards, or packages that are not addressed to a specific person at a military medical facility. Department of Defense regulations require military hospitals to reject any mail that is addressed to “A Recovering American Soldier,” “Any Wounded Soldier,” or “Any Service Member.”
Read the rest of Frothingham's holiday cards post to learn how this year holiday cards can be sent to wounded soldiers. And then please send cards yourself per Frothingham's instructions.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
