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

Great idea and we are very fortunate to have such men and women serving their country.

 

But all I can think of right now is the ending to a famous poem written close to a hundred years ago:

 
You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you'll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.
