The guys enjoyed the sunblock, the gals – the chapstick and facial cleanser

02/25/2010

To the Staff and Members of Operation Courage:

Thank you so dearly for the care package. Not only did I enjoy the items you provided but I shared them with my section. I have two officers and four enlisted Soldiers who work with me. We are deployed with the 1st Armored Division in Baghdad Iraq. This is the first deployment for 5 out of the 6 section members. So receipt of your box really made an impact upon us. We’re just shy of our 90-day mark of the deployment. Therefore, timing of your box was great and provided a much needed pick-me-up. The guys really enjoyed all the sun block as the gals really enjoyed the chap sticks and facial cleansers.

Your thoughtful gesture reminded us how blessed we are that organizations such as yourself continue to provide support to troops just as you did in the beginning years of OIF. Again thank you so much for your kindness, generosity, support, and most importantly prayers! May God continue to bless you.

Sincerely,
Karen

P.S. Attached are pictures of me opening the box and of my section (minus our nightshift Soldier who was unable to
be in the photo).
