To the Editor:
I received on Valentine’s Day a box of wonderful cards from your class. My Soldiers and I want to thank you and your students for taking the time to think of us. Reaching out to our unit means quite a lot to the men and women currently deployed overseas. We have just completed over seven months of our deployment and we are just preparing to return home in another two months. Your warm well wishes help these brave Soldiers separated from their families stay focused on defending our nation. Patriotic citizens such as yourself make our deployment well worth the sacrifice.
