When a new box arrives it doesn't last long

Email received by a cardmaker:

Dear Ms. Jeanne, I wanted to thank you for the wonderful OperationWriteHome cards that you make and send over to us. I cannot express what a blessing it is to have such beautiful hand made cards to send back to our loved ones in the States. Your cards are available through our USO here in Basrah and I can tell you that when a new box arrives it doesn't last long! Last night I used one of your cards to write a note home to my 11 year old son. It was a beautiful red, white, and blue card with a noble American eagle on it with the words "You are my best thought". What a perfect card for me to be able to send my boy. Thank you again for everything you do for our troops. You and all of the OpWriteHome volunteers bless us and our families on a daily basis. God's blessings to you and your loved ones.

Basrah, Iraq
