Random Acts of Christmas Kindness - Day 5

Today the kids colored Christmas pictures that we will include in a Christmas card addressed to "A Wounded Soldier."

Two days before our first anniversary, my husband was deployed to Kosovo 2 for a year. Fortunately, we didn't miss any Christmases together, but we missed our first anniversary. He missed the birth of our first son. We know all too well the pain of separation caused by a deployment.

Even worse is being back in the States but having to spend the holidays in a hospital recovering from war injuries. Hopefully, these simple colored pages will make a wounded soldier smile.

We will be sending them to:

A Wounded Soldier
Walter Reed Medical Center
Medical Family Assistance Center
6900 Georgia Ave NW
Washington, DC 20307-5001

Holiday Mail for Heroes
PO Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

(Thank you, Anonymous, for pointing out that the Walter Reed address is no longer a good one - current info can be found here)

If you are able, please take a moment and send a card to one of these soldiers.


  1. The Walter Reed address is no longer good. There is another place to send cards to soldiers. All the info is on

  2. Thank you! I have updated my post with the correct information.
