Mailroom Monday: May 2, 2011

This week 5,128 cards were mailed out - at a cost of $203.20! We are so honored to be able to serve these units, week after week, month after month, and in many cases - deployment after deployment. There are locations where we've supported one team after another as they rotate in and out - they pass our shippers' business cards on to the next unit, and we just continue the work.

We are so grateful especially to whomever was involved in the specific battle last week that resulted in the death of the face of terror, Osama Bin Laden. We don't know if they're on our list - but our Operation Write Home family extends our thanks and congratulations to them. God bless you, heroes. Work well done.
