A VERY SMALL THANK YOU

This is the card I will be including in the package going to Iraq. The inside of the card says:::::
Thank you for defending the gift of freedom far from home and for bringing a spirit of courage to life every day.
The card will be signed by my friends, in what Kristen calls, our breakfast club who are donating cash or items for the package.

So far, this is what I have collected to send. They have a room set up so any soldier who needs an item can go in and pick something they need, which can save them some money. She is setting up people to mail a package every month while they are serving. In this unit there are 36 soldiers, men and women. I only hope other units are getting supported like this home group is promoting. I pray each and every one stays safe. We have to remember, we are
THE HOME OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE.

So nice. I wanted to do the same thing for Mitch & the unit from all the Lenharts. K, already emailed you, but if you read this, send me a list of things they like to get and/or things they can't have! I'll put something together as well! Or Aunt Nancy, let me know if you have the information! I'm sure it's all greatly appreciated!
