Please add this to your Christmas card list

( Thank you, Ginger, for sending this to me! )

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

Author's Edit: A reader named Alice has informed me this is incorrect. To send mail to anonymous soldiers, please refer to this link. Sorry for the incorrect information, but I thought this was a wonderful idea and a legitimate one, too.

Sorry - Walter Reed will not accept cards addressed this way. See the Snopes posting at for more information and how to really send greetings to a wounded soldier
