Appreciation for your Valentines cards

Dear Operation Write Home,
On behalf of the Camp Arifjan American Red Cross and the ASG-KU Command, we wish to extend our grateful appreciation for your Valentines cards for our troops to write home. The time and effort that goes into the making of these handmade cards means so much to our troops.
The American Red Cross office here provides a location where service men and women can relax, enjoy candy and snacks, watch DVDs/videos, browse the paperback book and magazine collections, listen to music, play games, put puzzles together, or watch TV. We also provide popcorn, hot drinks, playing cards. we even bake homemade bread here to bring a little taste of home.
We help keep the American people in touch with their family members serving in the U.S. military. We locate and notify military personnel of births, deaths, and other family emergencies and assist in getting the service member home during times of crisis.
The Camp Arifjan "Oasis" is available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week for emergency communications. Frequently, service members will visit our office just to rest and talk. During these visits we share your hospitality and gifts.
Again, we thank you for showing your concern and support. We couldn't do what we do without your support!
Team 20, The Musketeers
