Caring people like yourself

Dear Sandy,

I am Specialist S. P. and I am stationed at Kandahar Airfield which is just outside of Kandahar City, Afghanistan. I have been in the Army 6 years now I am a Chaplain’s Assistant and currently I work with the only Jewish Rabbi in Afghanistan. I also help out at the Chapel Ministry Center (CMC) on days that I am not traveling to different smaller bases providing religious support. I am 5 months into my deployment with just 7 more to go before I get back home to my lovely wife!

The service members and I greatly appreciate your support and generosity to us who are serving in Afghanistan. I take the cards I receive from you and I make sure the items get to the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines. I take great pride in my job to support service members by also providing and maintaining a place to have religious meetings such as bible studies or prayer groups, having movie nights, and distributing snacks and personal hygiene products sent to us by caring people like yourself! I cannot thank you enough for your support, care, and prayers! Please thank -all of the volunteers for their kind gestures and hard work in putting together all of these sincere cards and boxes of goodies.

God Bless You!!!
Specialist S. P.
