Operation Support Our Troops - America 
Letter of the Week:  December 26, 2011




While we were nestled all snug in our beds, our troops were out on patrol in a faraway land.  The letters below show how grateful they are for the love we sent their way this Christmas.

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!




Best Regards,


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.
