A little excitement

Hello friends...Sandy here! I just wanted to share a quick hello tonight - I am just so excited!! I got to meet one of our heroes this evening! A Chaplain who we supported for quite some time came to my church's care package packing party, and I was able to spend half an hour or so chatting with him....what an honor! :) He brought his daughter with him too, a beautiful young lady who is thrilled to have her Dad back home!

Stay tuned to hear more from him in the future (since he's local!)—but I wanted to share with you just how much he and his unit loved the cards! He said the selection they have access to is just awful, and having the boxes of handmade cards is a real treat. And having our "Operation Write Home" labels on the side, and tabs separating the themes of cards in between each section, the box is ready to go—so they're thrilled with what we do!

And, dummy me—I didn't even think to get a photo with him! Agh! Next time.

That's so neat. Always wonderful to get some feedback for what you do in person. How terrific that he was able to come help you too.
