HELP OUR VETERANS

Volunteer at a VA Hospital to honor veterans who bore the lamp of freedom in past conflicts.

While our men and women in uniform appreciate your generous support, the Department of Defense requests that people refrain from flooding the military mail system with letters, cards and gifts. Due to security concerns and transportation constraints, the Department cannot accept items to be mailed to "any service member." Some people have tried to avoid this prohibition by sending large numbers of packages to an individual service member's address, which however well intentioned, clogs the mail and causes unnecessary delays.
