Day 340: Sent A Holiday Card To Wounded Troops

One of my favorite parts of the holidays is when I go to my mailbox to see that someone has sent my family a Christmas card.  It is usually a battle between my wife and I to get to the mailbox first so that we get to open up the card before the other one.  My wife hangs all of the cards up on the wall behind the couch in our living room, and this year, my mom and stepdad had the first card with the honor of being hung up.  Receiving cards is something small that really puts a smile on my face, which is why I've done a couple of random acts based on them, including today's.

My affinity to the men and women of the armed forces has been mentioned in many different blog posts on here.  Long after my random acts are done, I am going to continue to do acts of kindness for soldiers because each and every one of them deserves to be treated like the heroes that they are.  The holidays can be a tough time for soldiers, especially the ones who have been injured and must spend their time in military hospitals.  I was thinking of something small that I could do to hopefully put a smile on the face of someone who has done so much for me, my family, and my country.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I sent a holiday card to wounded troops.  Some troop is going to get a picture of Miss Isla Bean with a handwritten message from my family.  If you would like to join me in sending a card (because it is SUPER easy), you can send them to:

  1. HOLIDAY MAIL FOR HEROES. Changes for 2014. Follow the Red Cross link for updates! No longer send cards to the PO Box and NEVER send to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center... they will not be received. Happy card-making!
