opportunity to share cards UPDATE please read
Nov 9th, 2007, 8:37pm
 
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.  
 
 
 
 
When you are making out your Christmas card list this year, please include the following:
 
         A Recovering American Soldier
         c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
          6900 Georgia Avenue, NW
          Washington, D.C. 20307-5001
 
If you approve of the idea, please pass it on to your e-mail list. Thank you!

Hi Denise-
 
I will put this message in my correspondence, too. This is a meaningful way to salute these brave men and women. I will send some cards, and I think there are lots of other ocasions that would be good: Veterans Day, Valentines Day, ec. Thank you for sharing.

Unfortunately, this letter has been going around for a couple of years, and  
on the Yahoo groups I am on, several people wrote in to say their cards had  
been returned. Snopes had it as FALSE

MAybe there is another way of getting cards to those soldiers?

Hi Denise
Makes you wonder why people do these things! You'd think they'd have better things to do with their time.

Well, GCU got cards to them through our "Support the Troops" effort a while back.  Any ideas, GCU, on how to get cards to the troops?  I think a lot of us would appreciate it!
 
Thanks,
Christie

actually i have a friend at fort drum in ny who asked for cards the other day.  i will check with her if someone has some ideas.   she is a scrapbooker and those ladies make cards but i am sure they wouldn't turn down some from us if offered.  her husband is in iraq now.  
 
another friend who's husband just returned is one of our newest artists here, he is a photographer and will submitting some as well.
