I wanted to post an excerpt or two from a letter I received this morning, to say thank you to everyone that has visited this blog. At the end of the day I don’t give a rats ass whether you have a (R) or (D) next to your name, what you think about the war in the middle east, or much of anything else. If you are a citizen of these United States of America I think you owe it to our troops abroad to wish them a safe return and safe and Merry Christmas, and so many of you helped in doing just that.

The boxes are flowing in on a regular here at Camp Bucca. We have gotten the ones out to visitation for the kids and also the boxes for the soldiers have gone out to the different units also. The kids have been loving the gifts coming in with the different toys and school supplies. Their faces just seem to light up when you give it to them.
The soldiers were shocked to get the boxes with actual gifts already wrapped in them. We sent them out to various units here and I suspect that the senders will be getting a letter written back showing how much they appreciate the gifts. I was going to wait until we they slowed down but it has lifted so many people spirits already I wanted to send you this email on behalf of Camp Bucca just to say thank you…………..
…….Enough people cared enough to read you blog and then cared even more enough to send anything for a small care package up to a large box full of wrapped gifts.”
So thank you to everyone that contributed, for helping to make someone you don’t know, smile this Christmas season. You people are awesome.
