This was posted in our chats by "Secret Santa". It is so wonderful, I wanted to share it with you all!!
"No matter how you celebrate the holidays, celebrate with someone who has served this country but won't be home for the holidays:
When filling out your Christmas cards this year, take ONE CARD and SEND it to this address: Holiday Mail for Heroes, PO BOX 5456, Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456 (according to Snopes this is the correct address). If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these soldiers could get to bring up their spirits! Feel free to re-post. This is a wonderful thing to do!!!
That address again:
Holiday Mail for Heroes
PO Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456"
And I will challenge you even further.
Find out where your closest Veterans Hospital is . . . you should be able to look it up on the internet! Get the address and send ONE CARD to A Recovering American Veteran c/o your local VA Hospital.
Did you know that a lot of veterans don't have people close by? Send a Veteran a Christmas wish, too!! And if the hospital is close to you, stop in and visit some of our Veterans!! It's a wonderful thing to do this Christmas!! You'll be glad you did!!
If you need a gift for a Veteran, check out what our sellers on OLA.com have to offer!
