TT: A package from home
If you read this posting and found it sobering, you might want to consider contributing to Operation Gratitude, which sends personalized "care packages" to American troops deployed overseas. Take a look at the Operation Gratitude mailbag and you'll know what a difference these packages can make.
This letter caught my eye:
Hello from Afghanistan. I just want to say thank you very much for the care package. I received the package yesterday and I enjoyed it more than words can explain. I am not sure if the people back home understand fully the appreciation that we feel when we get these packages for home. It is very difficult to explain and I don't think I would be able, even if I tried, so I will just say thank you again. God bless you all and take care, Sergeant Major D. J. C. US Army
He did just fine.
