The organization is encouraging people to take a few minutes to send a card, reminding soldiers how much they mean to the nation.

"They put their life on the line for us everyday and it's just a small something that we can do to just say 'thank you' and that we haven't forgotten them and we do appreciate everything that they do for our country so that we can be as free as we are," Rosalyn Hall said.

Anyone who would like to send a card, can until December 7th. If you're not able to stop by a Red Cross to drop off your cards, you can send messages of thanks and holiday cheer to "Holiday Mail for Heroes, P.O. Box 5456, Capitol Heights, Maryland."

Officials ask that the mail not be addressed to any one  soldier in particular.
