    When you are making out your Christmas card list this year, include the following:

    A Recovering American soldier
    c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
    6900 Georgia Avenue,NW
    Washington,D.C. 20307-5001

    Of course, you can send more than one card.

    What about Marines? Sailors? Airmen? In the case of marines you would need two addresses since they are from two different bases and coasts. I know that here at Lejeune they have a Battalion for wounded Marines, I suspect they have a similar arrangement at Pendleton.

    Not being an Air Force or Navy man no idea where they go.

    If you get them to Move America Forward or Melanie Morgan they can get them out to all the different branches. I can give anyone the address via PM.

    Simply not true. The Marine Corps is under the Department of the Navy but is its own Military branch.

    I have this argument with soldiers at times. Using your logic this means that any civilian hired by the Department of the Army is a soldier. Any civilian employed by the Department of the Air Force an airmen or better.

    The Navy provides medical personal for the Marine Corps and of course the Marines have as a mission the seizure of forward naval bases for the navy as well as protection of naval vessels as needed and Naval facilities.

    Wounded Sailors that are assigned to Marine Units at the time they are wounded may go to the Marine battalion for wounded Marines, I do not know, but not all sailors in those war zones are under Marine Command.
