The campaign is 'on' to get holiday messages to our military.
From now until Dec. 7th, the American Red Cross is collecting and distributing cards that send words of encouragement, gratitude and cheer to members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families.

You can send your message by mail to:
Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

Last year, the Idaho Chapter of the Red Cross collected 14,000 signatures on holiday cards by having people sign them at the Nampa and Boise Christmas Shows.  They will be doing that again this year.

Once again, to make sure that the cards are delivered in time for the holidays, they must be postmarked no later than December 7th.
