Merry Christmas from Camp Eggers in Kabul, Afghanistan!
Thank you very much for the care package, I was humbled by the thoughtfulness of your donors and volunteers. I saved this box for 3 weeks in order to open it on Christmas Eve; the best part was reading the cards and notes from people of all ages.
All the support from home is so very much appreciated, especially since I'm a Navy man deployed to a strange and mysterious place - dry land!
I attached a picture from when Santa visited!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!
Lt Commander Ned
I am writing you to thank you for the stocking I received this morning on Christmas. We are located on a small Combat Out Post in the Ghazni Province. We have no showers or bathrooms here, so I hope you understand that every little thing we get is used here. I know it is Christmas, but here it is just another day of patrols. I believe our CO's keep us busy on purpose so we do not ponder being away from our families. Thank you again for keeping us in your hearts and prayers.
