3. I tried this within the last couple years.

4. Snopes says you're correct...

But the Red Cross has a legitimate 'Holiday Mail for Heroes' program that can be used by following instructions at the last link:

5. Good call, el-Tee. Going through the Red Cross is the best method I've found (short of visiting ...
