From a Marine in Iraq, dated 31 Dec 2007:
The Marines of CLB 8 Supply would like to thank everyone who has taken time out of their busy lives during this holiday season to send cards, letters, and care packages. Our time here in Iraq hasn’t been that bad because we have supporters like you all out there constantly showing you appreciation for our service through your letters and care packages. We will be leaving here in about 2 months. Although we appreciate all you do, we will not need anymore care packages after Jan. 20th. Thanks for all you’ve done and what you continue to do in support of the Marines. We would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.
SSgt M.T., Iraq
