Can't do it....we were going to promote this on the station, but found out this..they won't accept the letters..

"Walter Reed Army Medical Center officials want to remind those individuals who want to show their appreciation through mail to include packages, letters, and holiday cards addressed to 'Any Wounded Soldier' or 'A Recovering American Soldier' that Walter Reed cannot accept these packages in support of the decision by then Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Transportation Policy in 2001. This decision was made to ensure the safety and well being of patients and staff at medical centers throughout the Department of Defense.

In addition, the U.S. Postal Service is no longer accepting "Any Service Member" or "A Recovering American Soldier" letters or packages. Mail to "Any Service Member" that is deposited into a collection box will not be delivered.

Instead of sending an “Any Wounded Soldierâ€

no confirmation, but I was told someone used the opportunity to write
a soldier and called him a murderer, etc.

Can you believe someone would do that to a WOUNDED VET?

Thanks for the info, Cappy! I have seen this posted and even posted it myself at other forums around the web. I have gone back to those places and given them the information you presented here. It's so sad that people don't appreciate what these brave men and women have done for us.

Snopes also updated information on this today.
