We all know about the missiles from Iran into Iraq,
but many don't know that mail was temporarily halted going into Iraq because of the dangerous situation. Mail is back on line and one of our units sent us this email:
"I hope this finds you and your team well,
Our mail was temporarily halted early this year, so it took a little longer to receive packages than normal, but earlier this week we were blessed by your care package. Thanks to everybody that made this happen, it was an awesome care package!
-Thanks for the travel mug from Wylie Independent school district! I gave it to one of the lieutenants out here and she is enjoying using it every day!
-Thanks for the ceramic Subaru coffee mug, I plan on buying a Subaru when I get home so I kept that one for myself ;)
-Thanks for the organic beef jerky, that stuff was scooped up and consumed quickly by the troops
-Thanks for the TRX bands… what an awesome gift!
-Thanks for the Reese’s Take 5’s, the entire box of 18 king size bars was eaten in less than a day. I’d call that a hit!
-Thanks for the Hershey’s Gold. I hid those until the Take 5’s were gone, but they went just as fast once I put them out…
-Thanks for the pack of Cigars, we have some real aficionados out here that appreciated that
-Thanks for the coffee, the troops run on coffee
Last but not least, thank you to all the rest of the Adopt a Soldier Platoon team that contributed to this package in any way! You guys are awesome and we are proud to be out here on behalf of Americans like you. Attached is a picture of some of the guys here."
