Our heroes are taking part in this hop with some special things to share! This first is a card made by a hero, the husband of a cardmaker, who's now home - is this not the COOLEST card! Sfc C.E. is soooo talented! He did his own texture embossing and heat embossing on the belt, and the circle inside the pocket is the actual lid of a can of Copenhagen!
Next we have a special gift sent to OWH from one of our recipients....these are contract and military personnel. Yes, we support more than just service members! Our contact came home, so they made a special card with photos of her, as well as photos of the colonel and everyone, signatures from them all....not sure if you can see it, but the notes are typed out below for you.
Operation Write Home, Thanks for your support! We have truly enjoyed the cards you have sent. We appreciate you thinking of us!Other notes on the left read:

Tashakoor, closthaagem! (going to guess that's something nice in the local language?)They also sent a really cool coin! It's big and heavy....and is the first of these ever received by OWH!
There is also a personal note from the Colonel:
I run a small, 25-person office in Kabul where we provide oversight and leadership for about 200 military and civilian contracting officers located throughout the country. Our entire group will spend about $3 billion supporting the U.S. and international effort.
It's a big job trying to get the most out of hard-earned taxpayer dollars, and knowing people like you and your team care enough to take time to provide us with these GREAT cards is important and helps us remember why we do what we do. On behalf of all of us at CENTCOM Contracting Command, I thank you for your patriotism and your contribution.
All the best, Col. B.F., U.S. ArmySo...are you inspired!?!?? We've got a little gift for someone who leaves a comment on this post - a cuttlebug embossing folder! Leave some love for our heroes and have a chance to win! Comments made before midnight Sunday Nov 14th are eligible.
