A Holiday Card for a Soldier

A Holiday Card for a Soldier November 17, 2012
It is the Holiday season and some of our countries most precious assets, our injured soldiers, are lying in hospital beds. Think of the difference we can make in someone’s life who has given us so much, with one card.  When doing your Christmas cards this year, take one card and send it to this address.  If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these wonderful, special people who have sacrificed so much will get. When you are making out your Christmas card list this year, please include the following:
A Recovering American Soldier
c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue, NW
Washington , D.C.  20307-5001

Dear Soldier,
You don’t know me, but I know you. You are one of my  Heroes.  You put your life on the line for me and almost paid the ultimate price. During this nation’s time of Thanksgiving, I am sending you this letter of gratitude.

When I hang my head for grace, you will be in my prayers.  When I raise my glass in cheer, you will be in my heart, and when I give thanks for all I have, including the freedom to write this, you will be in my thoughts.
A Grateful American,
Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos
