UNIT IN IRAQ
”Thank you SO much for your care packages, it's so very comforting to know you are all thinking of us so far from home. Ever since the American Revolution, our military has remained strong and resilient thanks to our faith communities and support organizations - we can't thank you enough for all you do. We are located in northern Iraq. It's very Spartan here - the base was captured by ISIS and almost completely destroyed before they were driven out. So we have no flush toilets here or hard-stand buildings - just tents and a whole lot of rocks! We have a small PX tent with a few necessities, but not much. So needless to say, your care packages really are a big hit here! "
