Instructions for forwarding Holiday mail to Service Members at Walter Reed
Every year there is a FaceBook Post that goes viral listing the wrong address
for sending Holiday Cards to service members, veterans and families receiving
care at Walter Reed Bethesda. It lists the address for Walter Reed Army Medical
Center on Georgia Ave, which closed more than 4 years ago. PLEASE, if and when
you see this FaceBook Post, respond to correct it. Any cards sent to 5900
Georgia Ave, "Any Service Member," or to "A
Recovering American Service Member" will be returned to sender because the
address does not exist. Please do not forget about our veterans who are
receiving care at your local VA Hospital.
In conjunction with National Preparedness Month, Walter Reed National Military
Medical Center, Naval Support Activity Bethesda and Naval District Washington
hosted an Emergency Preparedness Day in front of the tower on Sept 24.
The event featured displays, vehicles and demonstrations from the various units
across NSAB that would respond in event of emergency or contingency operations.
