I am passing this on, giving the address to Husband who is a very caring letter writer and posting this at my work. What a horrible time to be in the hospital. I will be keeping their recovery in my prayers.

Actually I've found this link that you might be interested in. Looks like they wouldn't be received by a soldier if you sent them to this address. :(

Apparently, the address is a scam. :-(

Anyway on Snopes.com it does list the real ways things can be sent.

Perhaps the address was once valid and people are still just sending it around.

Unfortunately, since 9/11, mail not addressed to a specific person cannot be delivered due to security reasons. What a crying shame!
