We are sincerely grateful for the packages and kind words-they were much appreciated. Colonel Ed had Bravo Company distribute their contents to the Soldiers in our unit. We're entering the ninth month of our deployment, and certain items are in short supply. The shelves in our PX are becoming increasingly bare due to the ongoing drawdown of forces, so personal hygiene products are always needed. Snacks, especially the home-baked cookies, were welcome treats--and a reminder of the homes we left behind so many months ago.
I'm pleased to report all packages arrived intact--over 80 in all. And they came just in time, as our post office is reducing operations, and delivery of incoming mail to this location will cease in the very near future.
On behalf of our entire Task Force here at COB Speicher, i wish to again thank the selfless individuals who purchased the items, baked the cookies, packed the boxes and paid for the postage. We are truly humbled by your generosity and heartened by your concern for our well-being.
