Mailroom Monday: April 18, 2011

This week 4,820 cards were mailed out this week - at a cost of $212.35. It was back to a somewhat relaxed week for us, compared to recent shipping totals...a breather after the Mother's Day rush the last few weeks!

Ciara's got some exciting hopeful news to share with you today! One of our heroes wrote this in an email:
Send me a little information on the dog and I can submit a
recommendation to make her an honorary soldier. 
 
—CPT C.E.L., Kuwait 
So she's got herself a little uniform now as  you can see, a birthday gift - so she's ready to roll if she gets this "promotion" to honorary soldier! :)
