Dear Patriotic Friend,

Please send this Christmas card to a disabled military heroI understand you're someone who supports the troops no matter what. So I thought you might want to cheer up a severely disabled military hero this Christmas by sending this "MERRY CHRISTMAS and GET WELL" card.

It won't cost you a penny to send this festive Christmas card. And it's a great way to cheer up a fellow American who has lost an arm or leg or suffered other devastating wounds in Afghanistan or Iraq, and perhaps even help in their healing.

It's all part of the Secret Santa Project, sponsored by the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes. Hundreds of patriotic, kindhearted Americans just like you will be sending Christmas cards to our wounded soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen along with $500 so they can provide their families with Christmas presents.

Maybe your Christmas card will land in the mailbox of a military wife like Kara, whose husband James was disabled serving our country.

After receiving a thoughtful greeting card and emergency financial aid from Coalition supporters, Kara wrote back to say,

"This could not have come at a better time. We have had a very tough last year and ever harder last 2 months, and are on the verge of our final out from the Army very soon . . .

"This is such a scary and sad time for us, on top of some financial challenges right before the holidays. . . . Receiving the card was such a blessing. It was a bright light that put a smile on our faces!"

I'm Major General John K. Singlaub, U.S. Army (Ret.).

I parachuted into Nazi-occupied France during WWII to prepare French Resistance fighters for the Allied invasion, trained Chinese guerrillas for operations against the Japanese, ran covert operations against the North Koreans and Chinese, and commanded all U.S. Special Operations Forces in Southeast Asia.

Today, I'm working with the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes, which provides emergency financial aid to troops severely disabled in the war on terror.

Maybe this is why Kara says leaving the military is "such a scary and sad time for us" . . .

Because of bureaucratic delays our wounded warriors are being forced to wait an average of ten months - and often a year or more - for their first government disability check to arrive after leaving the hospital and being separated from the military.

Meanwhile many military families are struggling to pay for food and rent and Christmas gifts could be totally out of the question.

The good news is, you can help.

Remember, Christmas is the Season of Hope. Right now I have a list of many, many wounded heroes who are hoping that someone remembers their sacrifice . . . hoping that someone is wishing them and their family well during the Christmas Season.

Please take a moment right now to send your "MERRY CHRISTMAS and GET WELL" card.

Major General John K. Singlaub

P.S. If you haven't thanked a disabled military hero for your freedom lately, here's your chance.

It won't cost you a penny to send a "MERRY CHRISTMAS and GET WELL" card to a soldier, marine, sailor or airman severely wounded in Afghanistan or Iraq.

You'll also have the opportunity to help a financially strapped military wife like Kara, who is going through a "scary and sad time" right now, provide her children with Christmas presents by making a tax-deductible donation to the Coalition's Secret Santa Project.

Thanks so much for what you've already done to acknowledge the painful sacrifices made by our wounded warriors and their families!
