I know most - if not all - cards will arrive after his birthday, but better late than miss this opportunity completely, right?
My friend Gary will collect and personally deliver the cards to John.
Here is how to address your envelope:

Learn more about John's service by listening to his very thorough phone interview with Kim Monson. John served with Medal of Honor Recipient, Sgt. Alfred Funk. If you listen all the way to the end, you will hear him tell some great stories about his time and experiences with him.
I usually give a deadline, but for this mission I will just say, please put your card in the mail ASAP!😊 This is a great project for your kids and grandkids! Have them draw him a picture!! He will LOVE it.
Thanks for your help! America is beautiful because of people like you who take the time to care.
Happy New Year,
Phlash Phelps (Sirius XM 60's on 6) and I have been doing a Livestream Show on Thursdays at 7pm EDT. We started it as a way to bring our followers together during the quarantine - but now it's taken on a life of its own. 🙃 Aside from some crazy stuff - that I can't really explain - you'd just have to watch, we raise awareness and donations for various charities.
There are lots of laughs and meaningful moments. Watch live on Facebook, or Youtube. You can watch our New Year's Eve show here.
Interested in booking Janine Stange to speak at your corporate, school, or organization's virtual - or in-person event?
Veteran's Last Patrol's Operation Holiday Salute! Over 30,000 cards were collected and distributed.
A very special thank you to all who took the time to participate in last month's mission. One recipient wrote:
"I was in tears. This is the kindest show of love I have seen in a long time. Words can not express the warmth in our hearts. I read some of the cards that the children wrote oh my goodness!!!!!"
