Amazing how much of an impact that last box had

Thank you very much for sending us more cards! It's amazing how much of an impact that last box had. You are the only one to have sent cards and it is amazing.

As I wrote you the first time I also wrote Hallmark a letter. I explained to them where we are and that we have nothing. After your first box arrived I finally received a letter from Hallmark saying in a polite way, "we already help out the Army." Totally cool and understandable. It hit me even more right then because while a miltimilliondollar company said I can't, Operation Write Home and yourself not only said you can, but said what more can we do! That's just really cool to me.

About needing a full box or mix*, I would say a mix because I want to make sure everyone else you are helping get some too. We appreciate all you sned no matter the size, you make us all smile.

I must be going, thank you so much for being so kind to us. You are really such a morale booster to all of us.

Thank you,
SPC W.L.

*We asked how many Christmas cards they wanted to get - half box, full box, etc. How sweet that they want to share with everyone - but guess what? These guys get an extra box just for being so sweet!!


They sent a photo, but I can't scan it quite yet. I'll add it when I am able, and let you know on FB when it's posted!

Knowing that our cards are appreciated makes us want to make even more. We appreciate their sacrifice, it is so much more than our own.

It's amazing what one person at a time can do. :) I love to hear the comments and only God knows what each card will do in all the people's lives they touch.
