    Got a card off to him yesterday. It’s not often you can make someone happy for just a few dollars.

    Count me in! I wish we knew what his rank was and his branch of the service.
    I posted the article on social media and forwarded the link to everyone on my mail list.
    I’d love to see a few 18 wheelers pull up to his mail box, too!

    I forwarded the story and address to my VA social worker and she is going to pass it along all of our PTSD groups and employees. I’m getting him a card on the way home today.
