From the General himself!

Dear Ms. Allnock,

Thank you and the members of Operation Write Home for the generous, handcrafted Name Day, Birthday, and Thank You note cards. I am truly thankful for you taking the time to send me a this unique care package so close to Christmas, and to receive so many cards in the Polish language was quite unexpected. As you probably know from your mother, sending a card on a name day is an important tradition in Poland and I am delighted to be able to send these cards even from Afghanistan.

Thank you for your participation in this important program, Operation Write Home, which I am certain brings great joy to many American Soldiers and their families. On a personal level, it is gratifying for me to know that there are Polish Americans around the world, who care about those helping Polish Soldiers overseas.

I wish you health and prosperity in the New Year.

Szczęśliwego Nowego 2011 Roku !
