Walker Reed Army Soldier


Everyone:I hope this email finds all of you well and in good spirits this holiday season and trust that you've all had a good year. As we look back on 2008, I am sure that we are all very thankful for the blessings we have received during this past year. All of us enjoy the freedoms that we have, and those freedoms are the results of efforts of many who have sacrificed so much so that we may live free in a country like ours. At this time of the year, I would like to ask a small favor of all of you. When doing your Christmas cards this year, please take one card and send it to the following address:

A Recovering American Soldier
c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue, NW
Washington , D.C. 20307-5001

The Marines, Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen at Walter Reed Hospital are those that have sustained the most serious injuries while protecting all of us here in the States and defending America. I think that the least we can do, is to let these brave servicemen and women know that they are not forgotten and the we appreciate all that they have done to protect all of us.

I hope that all of you have a wonderful holiday season and best wishes for a joyous and prosperous New Year!

Godspeed always,

PS- Feel free to pass this message on to anyone you know that would like to reach out and bring some joy into the life of someone who has made a sacrifice for the benefit of all of us.....

I have received a few messages like this asking to send holiday cards to any soldier at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

The messages are well intended,
but please do not send mail ..........
unless you have a specific soldier in mind.

Mail sent to any soldier will be discarded due to security concerns.....
