Americans can send a card of thanks and support to members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families until Friday as part of the Holiday Mail for Heroes program.

The Red Cross is inviting the public to send messages of thanks and holiday cheer by mailing them to:

Holiday Mail for Heroes

P.O. Box 5456

Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

To ensure that cards are delivered in time for the holidays, they must be postmarked no later than Friday.
