Support the troops send calling cards here

I am re-posting this because one of the most popular search terms I get is about sending calling cards to the guys in hospital. And I like this post because it sends you right to the source. So back by popular demand
"The number ONE request at Walter Reed hospital is phone cards. Because the priority of our government is to continue tax cuts for the likes of Paris Hilton, the government doesn’t pay LD phone charges and these guys, many of them amputees, are rationing their calls home.
Many will be there throughout the holidays.

Remember that most are from poor families. It is disgusting that they cannot keep in touch with family after what they have been asked to sacrifice for BushCo; especially this time of year.

Support the troops—cuz BushCo doesn’t. Send phone cards of any amount to:
Medical Family Assistance Center
Walter Reed Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20307-5001


They say they need an “endless” supply of these—any amount even $5 is greatly appreciated. "
