Default I know yall are busy but

I found this on my wall so I thought I"d share it. If you have an extra Christmas card this year, show this guy some love.

One of our ninjas sent this;
Honor Flight Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is asking for our help. A 91 year old WWII veteran, Mr. Calvin Harrison, is terminally ill and feeling a bit forgotten this holiday season. Mr. Harrison is in hospice care in Florence, SC. Honor Flight Myrtle Beach is requesting people from all over the county send Mr. Harrison a holiday card. Mr. Harrison’s address is as follows:
Mr. Calvin Harrison, c/o Hospice Care of Tri-County, 1402 South Meadows Farm Road #D, Florence, SC 29505.
I just thought that maybe a couple thousand cards from TAH readers would perk up a veteran this time of year. So, put your Santa hat on – you lurkers, too.

I'll be passing through there this afternoon on my way from Jacksonville, NC to Aiken, SC. Maybe I can stop in and shake his hand.

I may have a few more. The site is sending me a list of other WW2 vets that are in hospice with no loved ones.

Sweet! I found a box of unused Christmas cards. This is the perfect use for them.

Okay, that card went out as well. Here's hoping there aren't a lot of guys alone this Christmas.

U.S Army W.T.F! moments
Those who wrote to Mr. Houchin, I received a call today from him with the comments of, "I got a problem. The mail man just came in with a broke back because of all the wonderful letters and cards I received. This Christmas isn't looking so lonely after all. Tell everyone thank you for me." He I'd in much higher spirits because of y'all.

This has restored my faith in humanity a bit. I'm very happy and he mentioned me by name and the letter I wrote. Made my day.
