develop a trade that will enable them to support their families.

Subject: Thank You From Camp Eggers (UNCLASSIFIED)
I received your package this morning and ALL of the items where a Big Hit!
You reenergized my faith and love in my country when I opened your box! I
cannot thank you enough for the joy you placed on these troops faces.
Being deployed in a foreign land is not always easy but knowing people such
as yourself are cheering for us makes this life bearable. Please don’t
misunderstand me, I love what I do and who I serve, but I’m also human and
long for family. As a 22 year Air Force Officer, I can only imagine how the
younger service members feel. This is why I’m so passionate about what I do
and going above and beyond to make them feel comfortable. I cannot do this
without the kind people back home such as yourself. You are why we do what
we do and do it with pride. Thank you so much for validating that there are
still agents of our Lord looking out for us when we need it most. I thank
Now as far as feedback of items sent and needed, as we say in the Air Force,
everything was on target!
On a separate issue, I’m seeking assistance on a huge morale initiative here
on Camp Eggers.
I’m in the process of opening an Internet Café / library for camp patrons.
This will afford service members the opportunity to communicate with their
love ones in a relaxed atmosphere.
I’m reaching out for your assistance in finding an organization willing to
donate new or used IPads, Tablets or laptops (new/used). The assets will be
loaned out for use Only in the Internet Café for troops to Skype, Facebook
or Tweet their loves ones back home. They will not be issued for use
outside the café.
This program will be the first that I know of in this theater of operation.
The idea came about from young service members on camp that could not afford
or did not bring any type of communication device to reach back home. We do
have a computer room with ten overused desktop computers without cameras.
The number do not matter, if it’s one it’s one we didn’t have before. Thank
you in advance for any assistance you could provide to the men and women on
Please sleep well knowing we’re standing guard!
