This is just a short note to pass on thanks for the fantastic idea of Operation Write Home. As an Australian Soldier who is working in an area alongside American Soldiers, I have been very priveleged to be invited to make use of the cards to keep in touch with my family back in Australia.
These cards have enabled myself and others within the group to pen a few lines home when things are not so busy, without having to chase up paper, envelopes to write home with.
I am sure that it is not a solo effort so please pass on to the group my thanks.
The ards have made it so much more of a personal touch when you write home, rather than the store puchased cards. I have been able to send home birthday cards for my twin daughters, Mothers Day cards for my Mother, Mother-in Law, and my wife. I was able to also find an anniversary card for my wife = 24 years married this year = so thank you!
Well as I said, just a short thank you for the cards, and unless it is against your wishes, I will send a few more home before my tour ends.
