Mailroom Monday: February 22, 2010

This week we mailed less than 1,000 cards...however we have a special photo to share! One of our cardmakers, Jan K, has a husband serving overseas, and she sent this photo and note:

My husband is stationed in Abu Dhabi, so I made 130 greeting cards with the OWH stamp on back, and General Benson (on the right in the attached photo) personally delivered them to the U.S. troops stationed in the United Arab Emirates. USAF Col. Ryder (on the left) is the U.S. Embassy Defense Attaché in Abu Dhabi.


To heroes in Iraq:
335 to an Army unit
335 to an Army unit
325 to a USO serving Soldiers

Total cards sent: 338,539
