Red Cross helps Americans show gratitude to our service members on Thanksgiving

One of the easiest ways to say thanks this year is simply writing a solider, and the Red Cross is helping to make that possible.

By visiting Redcross.org/holidaymail you can make a card on line, or you can construct your own at home.

Sam Kille, chief spokesman for the Red Cross and former Marine, sits down with American Morning’s Alina Cho to explain that receiving a card from the states while overseas is one of the simplest ways to make a soldier feel at home during the holidays.

The Red Cross requests that all cards are received by December 9th so they can be processed in time for the holidays.
