Thanks for your support - from the troops
Posted by: McQ on Monday, November 12, 2007

This is a good story written by a Major deployed in Iraq. For those of you who have taken the time to send things, any thing, to the troops overseas, she tells you what it means. And it's all good. My favorite paragraphs:
This past May, a young soldier received several hundred tributes drawn by children at McNair Elementary School in Herndon, Va., where his mother does volunteer work. He taped them up along a hallway at Multi-National Force-Iraq headquarters, forming the letters T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U.

Members of our coalition partners' armed forces congregated in the hallway looking at the posters with wonder. They asked passersby, "American children send these to you? They are so beautiful!" Some shook their heads and confessed that they were stunned at the support we enjoy from our people back home.
For the most part, the average American has indeed made it a point to ensure that those in harm's way feel the love and support they should while deployed and in battle. A nice story for Veteran's day and a reminder that the holidays are upon us and there are plenty of organizations out there that will be glad to help you send good wishes to the troops if you so desire.

As MAJ Robbins concludes:
So thank you from us future veterans. Thanks for saying thanks.
Yes. Thanks.
