From a soldier in Iraq, dated 10 Mar 08:
Thank you so much for your support! All those cards were simply beautiful and amazing! I couldn’t believe it. This is my first deployment (over a 13 year career) and when you’re in the military you never realize how much support the military has until you deploy. I cannot express our thanks enough, our troops located at the outlying FOBs really appreciate getting these packages and letters showing suppport. You tend to take things for granted and never appreciate the little things that make getting through a deployment a little bit easier until you no longer have them.
