Military Christmas Card Requests

Postby Barnyard » Sun Nov 30, 2014 2:50 pm

I’m a veteran and I’m always willing to help the military men and women who have served and those who are currently serving our country. Recently, I have received this on my face book page from several different people and I'm sure it is only a matter of time before it shows up here. It seems to be a great way to cheer up a wounded warrior, but unfortunately it is not true. Here is an excerpt from snopes.com.

“Walter Reed Army Medical Center officials want to remind those individuals who want to show their appreciation through mail to include packages and letters, addressed to "Any Wounded Soldier" that Walter Reed will not be accepting these packages in support of the decision by then Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Transportation Policy in 2001. This decision was made to ensure the safety and well being of patients and staff at medical centers throughout the Department of Defense.

In addition, the U.S. Postal Service is no longer accepting "Any Service Member" or "Any Wounded Service Member" letters or packages. Mail to "Any Service Member" that is deposited into a collection box will not be delivered.”

Please don’t waste your time and money buying a card and postage for this. The only people who will benefit are the card makers and the postal service. Instead, give a donation to your local AmVets or VFW and tell them it is for active duty military personnel.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
