An email from a soldier in Iraq, dated 30 Jan 09:
As per your request on your note, I just wanted to write and let you know that I received your package of awesome cards! They arrived about 2 days ago and the box is already ¾ gone! The Soldiers think they are great and especially like the holiday cards! The Valentine’s Day cards are GONE!
It amazes me how much time and effort you and your supporters put into making these beautiful cards for Soldiers whom you’ve never met, but feel an obvious kindred spirit for. You all are truly amazing! Again, please know that you are making a difference and we truly appreciate your prayers and support.
I will be heading back to Fort Hood, Texas in about 9 days, but I have a point of contact in the unit that’s replacing us. However, they do not have email yet, but should in the next few days. I will send you her POC information as soon as I receive it and definitely before I depart!
Thank you again for your generous spirit! You all are THE BEST!
