Wounded soldiers holiday address

*Last night at the local youth group ages 6 to 13, I suggested to write a short note to wounded American soldiers, I was quite surprise at the eagerness the children wanted to participate instead of doing some type of craft or activity. After reading a few inappropriate (but I must admit funny) letters, a few third graders stated they thought they were writing to their sisters.   I not that old.....   There is just something about a ornery little boy you just cannot deny amusing, I am sure if I had them in a class for 6 hours I would think differently...

Even though the letters were short and to the point, if was very heart warming to see how excited the children got when it was suggested.
Here is the address so if you so choose to send a short but meaningful note to one of our American heroes.
Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD. 20791-5456
*This is a reprint, I thought at this time of year it is good to repeat the address to remember.
