Smiles on the faces of numerous peoplePosted by Operation Write Home on Sep 11, 2013 in Hero Blog, Hero Photos, Note from Afghanistan | 11 comments
Hello Sandy and to ALL of you Amazing Contributors to Operation Write Home!
It is pretty Bittersweet that I say I have a few days left here and am about to head back to California with nice vacations of friends and family following. It made my job and life that much easier for myself and the over 2,000 stationed here with the additions of your many gifts of homemade cards and more in my past six months here. You put smiles on the faces of numerous people that may not have had the simple things in life that many Americans take advantage of otherwise. I wish there was more I could do to show our gratitude .. thank-you very, very much!!
T.K., 1Lt, USAF
Note from the contact taking over for the 1LT :
Hello Sandy and the whole Operation Write Home (OWH) family <smile>,
For the last two days or so that I have had the pleasure and honor to be exposed to the MWR as a insider, I have come to realize more than I thought how much our loved ones from home care and support our troops while we are so far away from home.
It is through the heartfelt love and caring such as yours and your team that is clearly felt this far away by the kindness, time, effort and expense that you all commit in supporting this program which is more appreciated then one could imagine, “Thank you” <smile>.
Sandy/Team, I have some big boots to fill in LT’s absence, but I will most definitely put my best foot forward to keep this great program going on behalf of all the brothers and sisters in arms that we serve with.
I will also keep you informed with information and pictures to share with the good folks back home that share their love and support for us here.
Should there be anything at any time I/we can do for you from where we are here, please let me know, for we are also here to support with whatever we may be able to. Thank you all once again from the bottom of each and everyone’s hearts here, for without you all, all our time spent here would be much more difficult.
With love and appreciation
