The VA has posted this warning on its CHAMPVA page: "It has recently come to our attention that a person presenting himself as a Meds by Mail employee contacted a beneficiary offering them a $50.00 WalMart gift card for using Meds by Mail. In order to activate and issue the gift card a credit card number was required from the beneficiary. This is a fraudulent solicitor.

"The fighting at the Chosin Reservoir was the most violent small unit fighting in the history of American warfare. No other operation in the American book of war quite compares with the show [the battle of the Chosin Reservoir] by the First Marine Division [and attached U.S. Army and British Royal Marines]."
General S.L.A. Marshall, Prominent Army Historian of the Twentieth Century
