A soldier in Iraq can't see your ribbon,
Or the flag at your front door.
But a letter they hold in their hands,
To them means so much more.

There are only a few more days left to get packages in the mail to our soldiers by Christmas. I have addresses for Zachary, MudPuppy along with two Airman, Travis and Bryan. Please visit AdoptAPlatoon or AdoptASoldierfor the addresses of many other soldiers who would welcome a package from home!
Don’t forget to include a note, sharing your gratitude and support.
