Mail Call

You know it's going to be a good day when you get mail.
When you get a package, it's a great day.
When you get seven packages, all from, your week got, if you'll pardon the Vulgate vernacular, a buttload better. 

These packages included Girl Scout cookies, fleece blankets, soccer and basket balls, and SA Sweatshirts--which will be given to the wounded before they are medevaced, because it gets chilly, trust me on that--and I pray we have just as many sweatshirts now as we do when we leave.
One of the things in my (and I say my, but this stuff is going to a combination of US Soldiers and Afghan kids) was coffee.  An Army may move on it's stomach, but we run on coffee.
SoldiersAngels sent us 120 pounds of coffee, which originated from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf company.  These bags of coffee are special... each one has a hand-written note from the donor.  The one I grabbed says "The person holding this coffee is amazing and greatly appreciated and loved by all of us in San Diego.  Thank you for all you do for me and my loved ones."

If you'd like to send a note of thanks to the good folks at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, click here.  If you'd like to donate to, or find ways that you can help Soldiers Angels continue it's mission of making the days of our deployed, wounded, and returning servicemembers better, visit www.soldiersangels,org.

Oderint dum metuant
Let them hate us, so long as they fear us
Μολὼν λάβε--come and get it
عدنا الى الوطن لبلدنا ، الماعز يمكنك برغي
