Your Good Deed for the Day

The soldiers at Walter Reed Hospital need phone cards. Courtesy Steve Clemons of The Washington Note:

These requests may sound trivial given the scale of the problems we are writing about -- but the number one request from wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Medical Center is phone cards.

According to contacts I have at Walter Reed, the government does not pay for long distance phone calls for the troops who are convalescing there. The phone cards can be purchased in many places and can be of any denomination, even as small as $5.00 I am told.

Books and cds are also welcome and are often requested.

It's a small thing that could mean a lot this time of year. Contact information and other ideas are here. (Thanks to Pandagon for the link.)
