Send us your soldier’s address
This is a last-minute reminder: If you know members of the U.S. military who are away from home and might like to receive Christmas cards from their hometown, the Post would like to have their addresses. We plan to publish a list of our own “hometown heroes” — appearing first this Saturday — to help readers connect with and encourage U.S. troops.
To have someone included in our list, please share his or her name and address and tell us a little about the person. A photo may be included.
You can email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org or deliver it to Elizabeth Cook at the Salisbury Post, 131 W. Innes St.
Addresses received by 5 p.m. today will be published Saturday to allow enough time for cards to reach faraway posts.
While Dec. 17 is the deadline for mailing cards and letters to most military posts, the Postal Service says those bound for Afghanistan or Iraq should be mailed by Dec. 3 — Monday — to reach their destination by Dec. 25.
