Subject: Re: We adopted your unit!
First off, we are excited to hear from you, ... We spend several days at a time traveling on some of the most dangerous roads in the world, and we do it with complete confidence, devotion, and commitment to deliver goods to coalition forces all over the country. We call these men and women our Distribution Platoon, or Distro Platoon for short, and they are proud Americans just like you and your Raider Sisters. They all drive Hummers and shoot big guns!
Support from the home-front is probably the single most important thing that keeps us going! There's nothing better than the thanks we receive from other true patriots who believe in the Red, White, and Blue! That said, a simple and sincere "Thank you" carries more weight than anything else. Just knowing we have the support from the nation is critical and enables us to keep our heads up high. However, when you connect with someone special and share this experience that makes it all worth while. We're here for you! We're here for the rest of America! We're here to make sure "they" never attack our people again! Your prayers, kind words of encouragement, letters, cards, care packages, and belief in us goes a long, long way, more than you could ever know. We sincerely appreciate people like you and the Raider Sisters.
I hope your Army Theme Party is a great success and we would love to see pictures, too! We'll send you some, as well. Everyone knows about Texas girls...no other state has crowned more Miss America's. So, do what you do and make it happen!
Our needs--Surprises are best! We like unique items that allow us to connect with y'all (i.e. Raider stuff, etc...) Since we just got here we have many of the normal care package items like personal hygiene stuff, but in about 5-6 months those things may become scarce. We like books, movies, magazines, videos, DVDs, games, anything that entertains us during our down-time. We like pretty much that same stuff that most red blooded Americans like. Mind you, we have a small post exchange, but no Wal-mart. We would like to read a real newspaper once in a while. Although we have the internet and a few TV stations, and we know what's going on in the world we miss out on many of the smaller things like local papers, USA Today, etc... Pictures are great! We like homemade snacks and healthy snacks (nothing that will melt because it's over 120 degrees here). We have four ladies in our company and the rest are gentlemen from all over the U.S. Our ages range from 18-43. Most people are in their early to mid-20s.
Megan, we look forward to outstanding support from you all and anticipate when we will hear from you!
