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:
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.
