A Grateful Solider!

I just wanted to send a quick note to tell you how much I appreciate what you are doing to support the men and women of our military. A few weeks ago as I was walking through the reception line at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on my way to my mid-tour leave I was a lucky recipient of a white 5x8 envelope that was handed to me by a lovely lady who was one of hundreds of people there to receive us.  As I was riding the bus to another terminal to catch my flight to Seattle I opened the envelope to find a card with the picture of 12 women wearing cowboy hats standing on a bridge. The picture is great, but the note inside (and the unexpected $50) meant the world to me. Knowing that through these rough times there are people who still take the time to show their support for the military really makes a Solider feel great about what they’re doing.  The reception at DFW and the contents of the little white envelope were a great way to start my R&R. From the bottom of my heart I want to say Thank You!
