A worthy and just cause

To the wonderful volunteers at Cards For Heroes:

Since 19 February 2009, I have been stationed at Camp X, Kosovo in support of the 10 year NATO peacekeeping mission that started in 2009. Working diligently to provide support to our fellow NATO allies and help the Kosovar people establish a strong economic base are the main objectives of
our mission.  I am so committed to this cause that I am extending for another tour and will  return home sometime in July 2010.

On a personal note, keeping family members back home connected to deployed Soldier's hearts, minds, and souls are just as important.  This is where Cards for Heroes shines.

Over the past several months, I have been sending your creative, loving, and inspirational cards to family and friends back home.  Several family members and friends have commented on the quality, care, and compassion they see in each handmade card and love receiving them.  Hopefully, they are contributing to your cause because I believe it is a worthy and just cause with which I am very proud of because of your compassion for free speech.

Thank you for your gifts of love.  I am sending another one of your cards to my wife today.

Strength and Honor,

1LT K.H.M.
