Decorate with LOVE - ByTrish Berg

This Christmas, while you are decorating your home with lights and your tree with ornaments, don't forget to decorate your life with love.

While you are filling out your Christmas cards, add an extra one to an American soldier who was injured in battle. Send your letters, cards and love to:

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

Go to

And on the left is a list of US soldiers overseas. You click on a name, fill out a form and will be sent the email of a soldier you can email, encourage and support.

Ruh roh. Please don't send cards . . . sadly, after 9/11 the Postal Service can no longer deliver mail to the military hospitals that is not addressed to a specific patient. National security, mail threats, etc. render this form of thanks and encouragement ineffective. Your card will be returned to you. I sent cards to Bethesda and Walter Reed -- returned undeliverable. Please check Snopes.com for confirmation.
