Spread cheer across the miles - kept morale at an all time high!

**Two heroes from a newly arrived unit found a few leftover cards from the previous team there. This is in reply to our query about whether they're in the same unit.**

Thank you so much for your rapid reply! We did receive your email. I just spoke with SPC R., and unbeknownst to each other, we both placed orders for the cards. Ma'am, if it is possible, would you mind sending a separate box to each of us? Although we receive mail at the same building, we represent separate units. Under our roof, there are 6 different units with a total of about 75 people. The units prior to us left some cards that they received from you. They were such a big hit around here! I have never seen so many grown men and women writing cards to their loved ones. It was fantastic! And the feedback from the folks at home was amazing! Without a doubt, your organization has spread cheer across the miles and has kept our units' morale at an all time high! We wish you and all of the OWH folks a blessed New Year! Thank you!
CPT T.L.

I'm currently spending 2 months at a beach condo BUT I brought some of my card-making supplies with me. This message makes me want to get started right now. So glad I joined this group. At 70 yrs old, it's good to fee4l like you can still make a valuable contribution to our soldiers.
