Special Thanks for Special Service

Every year during the holiday season, Americans take time to reflect and give thanks for the many gifts in our lives.  Whether down the block, across the country, or around the world, we gather with family and loved ones to share a touch of home. It’s during this special season we ask you to take the time to ‘give something that means something” to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, our nation’s veterans, and their military families who may be separated from their loved ones or far from home.

Between October 1 and December 7, 2012, you are invited to send holiday greeting cards with messages of thanks and support to our troops. Red Cross volunteers will screen, sort, and deliver your cards to military installations as well as VA and military hospitals across the U.S. and around the world.

Visit www.redcross.org/holidaymail for details on how you can send a card.

Spread the word to your friends, family and neighbors, and let’s give something that means something to our service men and women, veterans and their families around the world in gratitude for their service.

  3. What a material of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable familiarity concerning unexpected feelings.
