My card from WAR at the Pentagon came promptly.  Never did make contact with the Fort.

Steve,

I just got them in last Thursday...   I will need about a couple of weeks to get everything packaged to go out...
You should have them by XMAS for sure. 

Thanks for keeping in touch.

Armed Forces Day Crossband Event QSL Cards for AAZ have been sent out by  Ft Huachuca, AZ.
Received mine on Saturday Feb. Only Nine months late!

I got two cards from The Fort in Arizona just last week.  Nice cards along with a letter thanking me for participating.

In the 2011 Armed Forces Day event I worked 5 of the military stations. I sent every one a QSL card to the address listed in the ARRL bulletin. Now, eleven-and-a-half months later I have received exactly ONE QSL card in return. I am sure these operators find replying to QSL cards less glamorous than making crossband contacts, but I say that they shouldn't bother to even publish a QSL address if they are not going to reply to them.
