Husband of the year

A letter from an airman (airwoman?) in Afghanistan dated 17 Oct 07:



Thank you all for all of those beautiful cards that you all made fo rus! My leadership loved them. They mentioned that their wives are going to think they are the husband of the yeaer, for sending the cards. It even reminded one of them of a birthday coming up.


I especially realize the dedication and commitment you all have put into each and every card made. I’ve been scrapbooking now for about 3 years now, and finally convinced my husband to turn 1/2 of our office into a space for me and my scrapbooking. It’s a great hobby and I absolutely love doing it, and learning new techniques. There was a group of girls, we’d get together and spend hours scrapbooking. My husband actually gets into it and helps me out when I get stuck or can’t get any ideas.


Well I’m over here with about 5 other people (all guys). It’s tough being the only girl, but I talk to my 2 other sisters, and the rest of my family, and that helps. One sister is in the Marines in NC, and the other is in the Army in Hawaii.


We hit our 2 month mark today, so only 4 more to go!


Thank you all again for all the cards, they were all put to good use. Anything is put to good use here!


With thanks,
—M.G.
