OKLAHOMA CITY – Veteran’s Day is a time when everyone across the country should thank a member of the military.

However, a campaign by the American Red Cross allows you to show your support in a very special way during the holidays.

The Red Cross’ “Holiday Mail for Heroes” campaign is now underway.

Members of the military and their families often spend the holidays apart but a simple card or letter can add some cheer to the holiday season.

Since 2006, more than 6.5 million cards and letters have been delivered to members of the U.S. military and their families.

To participate, residents are encouraged to send a card to the following address:

Holiday Mail for Heroes

P.O. Box 5456

Capitol Heights, MD 20791

The deadline for cards is Dec. 6.
