Do We Get What Is Sent.

The question: we see a lot of links out there for supporting you guys 
with various small items that we think yall would appreciate (say maybe
some tabasco sauce). Do these items ever make it to you?

Mr. Matt - As a matter of fact we do. Right out back we have the MWR (Morale Welfare and Recreation) tent
in that tent you can find books, condiments, drink mixers, magazines, and various personel hygene products.
I would like to thank everyone that takes time out of their day and a little cash out of their pockets to
send us those things. There have been plenty of nights that I've gotten off of work and found myself a snack,
or even waking in the morning to realize that I've run out of razor blades or shaving cream and there it is.
THANK YOU.

GIGOTTI78 - I have to agree with Mr. Matt. Each day soldiers recieve packages from these different online organizations
or from local clubs. If you are wondering about which ones are good or not, I can tell you that Any Soldier
is a great site. You can also check with your local VFW or American Legion too. Soldiers can sign themselves up or their whole companies and citizens can "adopt" them and send
care packages. Of course, their are some things that are banned, so just check with the websites what is allowed
and what is not. And like Mr. Matt said, THANK YOU all for your support!

Can we adopt you specifically?

There are a lot of great troop support organizations out there now, I'm happy to say. Including the one close to my heart, Soldiers' Angels. I just wrote a post yesterday about the mail being received (or not), which I just added a link to your page. You can read it here if you like. I think this blog is a great idea and I'm sure it will be helpful for the uninformed to find out more.

How do the Iraqi people respond to the American soldier presence?

What kind of progress do you see in Iraq?


Sorry for double dipping. Just want to also thank you so much for your sacrifice and service. To me, it means more than most will understand.

Bonanza Jellybean, you can adopt us specifically, all we have to do is give you our address :)

Kristi:

From myself and Mr. Matt, thank you all for the support.
