" Thank you for the boxes. I handed them out to three soldiers who did not receive any mail yet so as to get a smile from them I gave them a box. When I say smile I mean it because in this place smiles are few and far between so it means a lot. So know you did that for a few good soldiers here. I also took a box for myself. I am not sure how you guys work but my box was very well put together and thought out so thank you. Please excuse the handwriting as this was written under a head lamp in the middle of the night."

PFC Stephen Hall
101st ABN Division FOB Blessing
