I am writing to request your help with a very special surprise for my Father, William Martin Law! He is being recognized and honored, along with other WWII veterans, on May 16th by the Honor Flight Capital Region in Washington DC. He will be participating in a very special day that involves a tour of the WWII Memorial along with a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery and a visit to other notable sites on the National Mall. As part of the day-long adventure there will be a “mail call” similar to what the veterans experienced during their days of service during WWII -this is a SURPRISE.
I am writing to ask you to take a quick moment to write a short note, a simple card of thank you so that my Dad will get a bundle of mail during the surprise “mail call”. This is a very personal and touching way to know that, even after all these years, his service to his country has not been forgotten.
Please be as creative as you like, but send it right away as the cards/letters (no bigger than 8×10) need to arrive at the below address by May 8th (sorry for the late request):

Please include my Dad’s name –William M Law, on the LOWER LEFT portion of the envelope and include the trip date of 5/16/15.
After WW-2 ended my dad stayed in the Marines and was about to deploy to Korea when his discharge came through.At the time of his discharge he was a Staff Sergeant. I do remember his uniform, 3-up & 1-down and his Purple Heart.
