Soldiers came in droves

An email from a soldier in Kuwait, dated 21 Oct 08:

We (the Xth Transportation Battalion, also known as the “DOERS") received your second box of cards with Thanksgiving, kids b-day, and other great cards. Thank you!! As soon as word got out that another box of cards had arrived, the Soldiers came in droves. It was great to see. You would have loved to see it. Mail headed back home has been slow lately, so Soldiers are already sending Thanksgiving cards home. The Halloween cards that I sent to my daughters (age 2 and 4) arrived and they love them. My wife thought that they were absolutely beautiful.

I have included a picture of our battalion headquarters company during our convoy training in Kuwait, so you can see some of the faces that you are helping.

Thank you again for your gift and your generosity.

Have a great day!!

Thank you,
