Deployment is not easy on anyone

Dear Ms Allnock,
I wish to thank you, on behalf of the entire 86th Expeditionary Signal Battalion and Task Force Tiger, for the care package of cards you sent us. They are sent out to Soldiers who are not assigned to an operating base with access to an Army Air Force Exchange Service. In this way, we can make sure that they get the items they need each day.

They have also helped out a great deal during times when supply lines here in Afghanistan become strained. The local stores sell out of all the basic necessities that Soldiers need. We in the Chaplains office are able to provide these items for the Soldiers, thanks to your contributions.

Again, a huge thank you is extended. Deployment is not easy on anyone, and you have been able to make it a little easier.

R. B. O., 86th Expeditionary Signal Battalion Chaplain
