Holiday Cards for Soldiers (Until Dec. 10)

I received the following e-mail and thought I would share it with the Tacoma World family. With the number of people in TW, we have we could really flood them with cards. Thanks.

A definite must

awesome idea - pass it on and lets show our support!




GREAT IDEA!! 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:
Holiday Mail for Heroes
PO Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
You can also:
If you approve, please pass it on.

“The eyes of the soldiers really light up” when they see greeting cards sent from the American public, said Lt. Col. David Oclander. Oclander was in Iraq around the time of last year’s program and remembers seeing soldiers, even those in the most remote locations, carrying cards around.

Some put the cards “in their vehicles when they go out on patrol,” he said. “It really helps brighten their days, especially when they’re enduring some long separations.”
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Col. Dennis Doyle, Walter Reed Health Care System’s deputy commander for administration, said the effect the cards had last year at military hospitals “cannot be overstated.”
“There is no objective way to measure the effect of receiving a thank-you card or letter on someone recovering from combat wounds,” Doyle said. “These letters made a huge impact on the morale of operations.”
From Tuesday through Dec. 10, the public can send their greeting cards, with adequate postage and a return address, to Holiday Mail for Heroes, P.O. Box 5456, Capitol Heights, Md. 20791-5456. To speed delivery, mailers should not send care packages, money or any inserts, including glitter.
I like the idea of signing as a member of TacomaWorld.com!

Every year I have leftover cards so this year I gathered them all up (about 30) and signed some of them with my name and the rest with
"Members of TacomaWorld.com", sent them off on Friday. Got the idea from Oxy.

Having spent two years overseas myself (1 year i afghanistan, the next in Iraq 2002-2004), Thanks to all who have sent and who are sending! They really are appreicated!
Here is another option as well.
Something cool that Xerox is doing again this year.

If you go to this web site,
www.LetsSayThanks.com
You can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will
Be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq.
You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services.

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!!

This is a great site. Please send a card.
It is FREE and it only takes a minute.
