"Thank you very much for all the hard work you and others have put in to provide members of my team and me with care packages. Being located at a more remote Forward Operating Base in Maysan Province, we do not have access to most amenities or personal hygiene type items typically available at other locations in Iraq. Also, since quite a few packages have been sent to us, we have shared with other personnel here and the care packages you send have unofficially been voted as the best ones. Thank you very much for keeping us in your thoughts."
