Important Information about "A Recovering American Soldier" Christmas Card

This message advises recipients that they can send Christmas cards addressed to "A Recovering American Soldier" care of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. While this might seem like a good way to show support for wounded soldiers, the information in the message is incorrect. Cards sent to "A Recovering American soldier" or similar will not be accepted by Walter Reed Army Medical Center. In fact, the original Walter Reed Army Medical Center closed down in August 20. The facility was reborn as the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and is now located in Bethesda.

However, cards can be sent to service members via the "Holiday Mail for Heroes" campaign operated by the American Red Cross. Further details about the campaign are available on the American Red Cross website. The article notes:
Each year the American Red Cross provides assistance to more than 2 million service members and many of our nation’s 24 million veterans. We support military families, military and veterans hospitals and provide emergency communications across the globe. And once a year, we get the joy of delivering holiday cards to veterans, military families and active-duty service members at hospitals and installations around the world.
The cards and personal messages, sent by tens of thousands of Americans, provide a welcome “touch of home” for our troops during the holiday season.
All holiday greetings should be addressed and sent to:
Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

The deadline for having cards to the P.O. Box is Friday, December 7th.
Holiday cards received after this date cannot be guaranteed delivery.
Versions of the message are now circulating via social media websites as well as email. If it should come your way please let the sender know that the address information in the message is incorrect. To reiterate, mail addressed to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center will not reach any recovery soldiers.

2ND Annual Home “Made” For The Holidays

Home “Made” for the Holidays is not a class or a make and take.  It’s holiday project samples that we hope will inspire you for five weeks from from Nov. 21st through December 19th.  
 Holiday themes are:  Packaging, Ornamentation, Gifties,  and Table Dressing.  Projects are paper crafted using store products, our stash, re-cycled and re-purposed items from around the house, flea markets and good will finds.  Pinterest is a huge source of inspiration and is helping me show you some fun ideas.
