I got not one, but TWO letters in my mailbox yesterday!!! One was from the Sargeant that put his troop's name on the site. And, one from one of the soldiers. Both of them were two page letters - not just little notes, but actual letters!
The thing that made me sad, though, is that the soldier that got my package turned TWENTY ONE this past week. That's just so young.
You forget how young these soldiers can be.
They were going to have a BBQ for her for her birthday (and, I was invited, if I wanted to come, too!
). She's in the Air Force, but she told me how the Army has Salsa dances every week - she's thinking of going someday, but she's not sure about dancing in her uniform. The Army also does weekly 5K "fun runs." But, she doesn't think that sounds like much "fun"!
Needless to say, I was at the store again today buying more stuff to send!
