Millions of Americans since 2007 have sent holiday cards to soldiers serving overseas and wounded veterans in hospitals as part of the American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes program.
For the fifth straight year, volunteers in scout troops and church groups will send a touch of home this holiday season to members of the U.S. military, many of whom will be far away from families and friends.
The Red Cross project kicked off November 3 in Washington DC, in partnership with Pitney Bowes, a company with expertise in screening and processing mail with distribution capabilities worldwide.
With a simple act of kindness, completing a card can mean the world to a soldier and their family.
Postmark your card no later than Friday, December 9, sending it to:
