These Cards are Perfect!

Good Morning Dixie,

What a wonderful treat to receive the box of note cards for my company, coming from Operation Write Home. This gift that you and many others have given will brighten the lives of our soldiers. What talent your group has! I can't believe how beautiful and charming the note cards are. I don't believe there are enough words to express my gratitude. Thank you again, and again, and again.

Even with modern technology, I as well, believe writing letters home is important. I know how special it makes me feel to receive mail. I had asked my husband to send me some stationary, but he had no idea what I was wanting. These cards are perfect!

Currently, our company has been split between 2 different posts. Last night I divided the cards, and I will keep 1/2 here (Bagram) and send the other 1/2 to Gamberi. I so wish I could be there to see the faces of the soldiers who receive these cards. Just know you will touch each and every one of their lives.

After sending us these beautiful cards, it seems inappropriate to email you our gratitude. I know it takes a few weeks to get letters back to the USA, and I wanted you to know they had been received. I will follow-up this letter with a handwritten one.

Again, thank you Dixie. I can't believe a caring, thoughtful woman like yourself could possibly get into trouble if she had too much free time on her hands. We are blessed that you chose to fill your time supporting the troops. You're a gift from heaven. Also, thank you for the picture of the deer. I have it posted on my wall here at work. It's nice to see wildlife, especially when in a war-torn country. This is a reminder of home, and I will be back there next April.

God bless you,

MAJ B. P.
Army National Guard
