- An orthodontic office in Rhinelander wants you to add one more person to your holiday card mailing list.
Dr. Joshua Bruce of Schmidt and Bruce Orthodontics is organizing this year's "Hope and Healing" thank-you card program for wounded veterans.
Dr. Darrell Schmidt first collected the cards for injured service members around Christmas last year.
Bruce says helping veterans is something he cares deeply about.
"My cousin Mathew, who I'm very close to, he is in the military, his wife is in the military, both my grandpas served in the military, so it's something personal to me that I want to say thank you for our freedoms," said Bruce.
So far, the office has collected about 600 cards to mail to soldiers at Walter Reed and Landstuhl medical centers in Maryland and Germany.
This is the most cards they have ever collected.
"Since we started this it just keeps getting bigger and bigger, and that just makes me very happy that this has been a success so far," said office manager Gloria Behnke
The orthodontic office, which is located on Timber Drive in Rhinelander, is taking cards up until next Monday.
