An Army soldier, Joshua Sparling, received a death wish while recovering at Walter Reed hospital from a gunshot wound he received in Iraq. It was in the only Christmas card he received. I think this soldier deserves better than that. I am sending him a Christmas card. You can too.

If you want to send cards to other wounded soldiers, you can get names by calling Walter Reed hospital at (202)782-3501.

If you want to consider including a gift, you could always enclose a phone card to assist them in calling home during the holidays.

If you want to send a bunch of cards, you can bundle multiple cards in one big envelope and send it to the Red Cross. Send it to:
Red CrossWalter Reed Army Medical Center6900 Georgia Avenue NWHeaton Pavillion3EO5 Washington, DC 20307

Red Cross will distribute them.
