Send Christmas Cards To The U.S. Military Troops

December 8, 2011

We received this touching email earlier today from the aunt of a young man in the service named Zack. They were so thrilled to have him home safe and ALIVE on Thanksgiving Day!

Below is her email, and I encourage you to read it and pass it along to anyone you know who sends out Christmas cards during the holiday season.

“Even if you don’t agree on how the U.S. military operates, it still needs to operate. It takes brave men and women to make it all happen. It’s a tough job and they give it up a lot. I never knew how much until I saw it first hand through my Nephew and his family.

Whatever little we can do to show our thanks – I say why not!!!

So this holiday season take a moment and keep in mind that they have given so much, but are unable to be at home with their families and celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years.

Our soldiers are air lifted back to the states when they are injured, ASAP, but they come with nothing but what they have on them. Many have a long recovery period.   Let us remember each of them, and all they do.

When you do your Christmas cards this year, take one or two cards and send it to this address. If we pass this on and everyone sends at least one card, think of how many cards these special people who have sacrificed so much would get.”   Please add to your list:

This holiday season, take time to thank the men and women who are overseas serving to protect you and your family back here in the United States. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Send a Christmas card today!

Remland Insurance will be sending out Christmas cards to the troops this week!

    This is a very touching email, but maybe a little out of date. Walter Red closed down earlier this year, and my understanding is that there is no one there to receive cards or anything else. (see below)

    “As part of a Base Realignment and Closure announcement on May 13, 2005, the Department of Defense proposed replacing Walter Reed Army Medical Center with a new Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC); the new center would be on the grounds of the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, seven miles (11 km) from WRAMC’s current location in Washington, D.C. The proposal is part of a program to transform medical facilities into joint facilities, with staff including Army, Navy, and Air Force medical personnel.

    On August 25, 2005, the BRAC Committee recommended passage of the plans for the WRNMMC. The transfer of services from the existing to the new facilities was gradual to allow for continuity of care for the thousands of service members, retirees and family members that depended upon WRAMC. The end of operations at the WRAMC facility occurred on August 27, 2011. The Army says the cost of closing that hospital and consolidating it with Bethesda Naval Medical Center in suburban Maryland more than doubled to $2.6 billion since the plan was announced in 2005 by the Base Realignment and Closing Commission (BRAC)”
