Hello from Iraq,

Hello from Iraq,

I want to take this opportunity to say Thank You on behalf of my unit. I can't begin to tell you how much the Soldiers appreciate the items sent. Virtually nothing goes to waste and is sometimes argued over. All is settled peacefully though. We carefully take the packages and ensure each company has an equal amount to share amongst the Soldiers. There is considerable excitement when packages come in and small crowds gather around when the cards are read. Another highlight of the opening of the boxes. Thank you again for your support and the goodies.
