Week of November 11, 2013

Veteran's Day Assembly

Join us today (11/11) at noon to honor our veterans at OHVA and around the world. Did you know that Veteran's day is observed on November 11th because in 1918 is was the 11th month on the 11th day at the 11th hour that WWI ended? Well, you know now!

Your family is welcome and encouraged to attend. Have them log in at the same link with their proper names please. If they are veterans, ask them to log in with their branch of military as well; for example, John Smith – US Navy. We would like to personally thank them for their service.

Dorene Smith, OHVA High School Computer Science Teacher and U.S. Navy Veteran will be the facilitator for the assembly.

We hope to see you there!

Take Action....Give Back!

Supporting Our Military by Giving Something that Means Something

Each year the American Red Cross provides assistance to more than 2 million service members and many of our nation’s 24 million veterans. We support military families, military and veterans hospitals and provide emergency communications across the globe. And once a year, we get the joy of delivering holiday greetings to veterans, military families and active-duty service members at hospitals and installations around the world.

The cards and personal messages, sent by tens of thousands of Americans, provide a welcome “touch of home” for our troops during the holiday season.

Card Guidelines:

Every card received will be screened for hazardous materials and then reviewed by Red Cross volunteers working around the country.

Please observe the following guidelines to ensure a quick reviewing process:

  • Ensure that all cards are signed.
  • Use generic salutations such as “Dear Service Member.” Cards addressed to specific individuals can not be delivered through this program.
  • Only cards are being accepted. Do not send or include letters.
  • Do not include email or home addresses on the cards: the program is not meant to foster pen pal relationships.
  • Do not include inserts of any kind, including photos: these items will be removed during the reviewing process.
  • Please refrain from choosing cards with glitter or using loose glitter as it can aggravate health issues of ill and injured warriors.
  • If you are mailing a large quantity of cards, please bundle them and place them in large mailing envelopes or flat rate postal shipping boxes. Each card does not need its own envelope, as envelopes will be removed from all cards before distribution.

All holiday greetings should be addressed and sent to:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

The deadline for having cards to the P.O. Box is December 6th.
Holiday cards received after this date cannot be guaranteed delivery.
