A heartfelt thanks to all who donated items for the Good Earth Soldier Drive.
Chief received the boxes and is handing the items out to Airmen and Soldiers. Because of the generosity of many, several of our Service Members have received comfort items.

An entire box of games was sent to Iraq! The base hosted 156 Iraqi children at the recreation center, needless to say the games were much appreciated!

In Chief's kind e-mail, he wrote, "This is part of winning the "Hearts and Mind" phase of the war...trying to get them while they are young...showing them that Americans are the Good Guys..." Without a doubt, our soldiers are good guys!

Chief is due to come home in about two weeks. It will be my honor to welcome him home at BWI, if all goes as planned. My prayers are constant for Chief, along with all our heroes. Our heroes are serving our nation in far away lands, and right here in our own backyard are generous people who want to thank these remarkable men and women.

Our nation is truly blessed!

AM, please give Chief a hug and a big thank you from me. I enjoyed working with him this year as little as I could do. He is an asset to the AF even though he plans on retiring. I'm glad I had the opportunity to meet him - because of you.

Also, I love John Berry's version of Oh Holey Night. One of my favorites. YouTube took the video I posted last year down. Asshats!

Yes, winning hearts and minds has to start with the young'uns, before the terrorists can get hold of them and twist their minds all up.

Great to see things like the Good Earth Soldier Drive.

AirmanMom said... warmest holiday wishes to you and yours. May the new year bring good health and lots of happiness!

AirmanMom said... will be my pleasure to pass along a hug to Chief. (I do hope it works out for me to meet and greet him)
As for John Berry...truly he is an amazing artist. I saw him in a Christmas concert years ago, awesome!!!!
