Every year, our friends at the American Red Cross deliver holiday cards to veterans, military families and active-duty servicemembers at hospitals and installations around the world. The cards and personal messages, sent by tens of thousands of Americans, provide a welcome “touch of home” for our troops during the holiday season. The deadline for having cards to the P.O. Box is Friday, Dec. 7.

To show our support for this worthwhile cause, stop by American Legion Victor Stier Post # 450 and fill out a card for our hospitalized veterans, active duty service men and women, and their families. For the next two Sundays, while you stop by for our Country Breakfast, don’t forget to fill out a card to bring that touch of home to those far away. Sometimes one kind word is all it takes to make a difference in someone’s life.
I encourage you to have a card party and bring your completed cards to the Post for delivery to the American Red Cross.
Post 450 will also accept donations of cards so we can continue to support the American Red Cross’ Mail for Heroes project.
