Phone Cards for the Troops
I'm putting this in the general forum instead of the political forum since it really isn't politics and a lot of you don't go in the political forum. But this really touched me, and wanted to pass it on. Also a friend has already checked it out it is a very legimate need.
So sad...the number ONE request at Walter Reed hospital is phone cards.
Because 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. They are having a hard time
keeping in touch with their families especially this time of year.
Support the troops. Send phone cards of any amount to:
Medical Family Assistance Center
Walter Reed Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue, NW
Building 2, Third Floor, Room 3E01
Washington, DC 20307-5001
They say they need an "endless" supply of these -- any amount even $5 is

Yeah, these guys have busted a gut for their country only to be left this way, im sure the least we can do is cough up a few quid for a phone card for then.
Mines gonna be on the way tommorow
