Would you like to send a holiday greeting to a GI, but aren't sure how to do it?

The American Red Cross can help. Together with Pitney Bowes, the Red Cross is launching its Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign today, allowing people to send their cards with a message of thanks and cheer.

The two organizations will screen cards for hazardous materials, sort and package the cards, and deliver them to military bases and hospitals, veteran's hospitals, and other locations during the holidays.

Greetings must be received by December tenth to insure delivery by Christmas.

Mail can be sent to:

Holiday Mail For Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

    I think it is a great thing, that the red cross is doing.

    Many could use a reminder about requirements for packages to GIs.
