Honor our troops!

Just yesterday, I saw an article over at Michelle Malkin's place which sent me into a complete rage:
According to Kilmeade, who visited Walter Reed on Friday, a US Army soldier named Joshua Sparling received the death wish while recovering from a gunshot wound he received in Ramadi, Iraq. It's the only Christmas card he received.
I don't think that David would mind me saying that this is an absolute, obscene atrocity!The story was originally reported by Two Babes and a Brain -

During our visit to Walter Reed, we all piled into a room of a young soldier who had just come out of surgery. His parents were there to take care of him. His room was decorated with autographed photos...one from Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac who had visited the previous day...others of professional football players. There was also a card from a child...a get well card...

..or so one would think.

FoxNews has carried the story, and has put out a call for people to send cards, notes, encouragement, and support to Joshua Sparling, who recieved that hateful letter, as well as his comrades-in-arms who are recuperating at Walter Reed Army Medical Center:

Capt. James Ollinger Sgt. Zavian Simspon Specialist Brian Radke Specialist Jason Braase Sgt. David Nevins Sgt. Jose Ramos Cpl. Todd Bishop Sgt. Ryan Donnelly Sgt. Eva Diane Cochran

Please address your cards to the servicemember at this address:

C/O Walter Reed Army Medical Center 6900 Georgia Avenue NW Washington, DC 20307-5001

Thank you so much for your support of our brave and honorable troops; let us all make sure that they know we are greatful for their service, and greatly honor their courage and sacrifice!
