17.5 years

June 19, 2013

Hello Zoe and girl scout troop 318,

I would just like to say thank you so much for my card and care package, it brough so much sunshine to my day. First let me tell you a little about myself, I’m a SSG (Staff Sergeant) in the United States Army.  I have been in for 17.5 yrs and I’m about to be promoted to (SFC) Sergeant first class.  I”m married just made my 1 yr anniversary (May 16) before I flew out.  My husband is in the military too.  He’s been in for 21 yrs.  I don’t have any kids, but we look forward to having some soon.  I enjoy my job and we love serving our country.  It feels good to all of us serving overseas knowing our family, friends and loved ones are being protected.  I used to be in the girl scouts when I was younger.  I started out as a brownie.  It was such a good experience.  I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.  Again I would just like to thank you for all of your support, with you we couldn’t do this.  I look forward to hearing from you again soon and God Bless each and every one of you.


SSG G., Teresa
