Happened to keep the sticker on the back of one of the cards

This one is especially for those who wonder why we stamp the backs of the cards...what a great email!

I once came across a box of beautiful handmade cards while I was on this teeny tiny base called Ubaydi.  I browsed through and found all kinds of wonderful little cards I could send home to my family and friends.  Well, the cards are gone now, and I never went back to that little base.  I have wanted to find out how I could get cards sent to my unit here in Iraq, and until now I have put it off.  I happened to keep the sticker on the back of one of the cards and that is how I found the website and this email.  I am wanting to know how I can get cards sent to my unit, and possibly other units we work with.  I am in a Combat Stress Control Company and we see different soldiers every day.  We have a huge give away area that we put care package supplies on and the soldiers take what they need.  A particularly hot item are cards.  We had a few regular store bought cards last week, but they are ALL gone and I am hoping that your site will be able to help us out.  I am the person who manages all of the extra care packages and any sort of supply things my unit needs.  I absolutely loved the cards that I picked up a few months ago and would love to be a part of your cause.  I think it is a great thing to be doing.  I think when I get home from this deployment, I will try to make some of my own cards to donate.  By the way, my name is K.H. and I am  SPC with the 55th Medical Company.  Thank you for your time and support for us soldiers!
