Thank you very much for the box of letters. I have passed them all out and do hope more of my fellow Marines return a letter. What you are doing is such an amazing feat for a young woman. You are definately [sic] a blessing.

I have served in the Marine Corps for almost 19 years. On my last trip I was working in the City of Ramadi. The City is the 2nd largest city in Iraq. On 15 May ’06 I was shot during a firefight. My wound required me to have my left leg amputated just above the knee. I have chosen to continue my service and return to Iraq because of support such as yours. Its a wonderful thing to help Iraq become a new country. And we are a wonderful country for helping. So I say Thank You. We all appreciate what you are doing.
