More Evidence of Low Morale and Uncaring Soldiers
I wanted to write you and thank you for the wonderful donations you made to us here in Afghanistan. The other day I opened up one of your boxes and found your
card. It really made me feel good to see where it was coming from.
I am from ___________ at _______High School and have been a US History teacher there for the past 25 years. In 1979 I got out of the Army and went to Purdue and decided to go into teaching. But after being out of the Army that long I decided to get into the guard after 911. Well it took over three years and I finally ambushed the state TAG at an awards ceremony for my daughters unit returning back from the war. Three days later I was back in but had to wavier retirement. But that wasn't my goal - I just wanted to serve and return to teaching which I love and miss.
I am an MP but was taken from the volunteer list and placed in an ASG. Once we arrived here I was placed in S-5, Civil Affairs, a job that is the best. The 1SG of the section and myself felt that the section wasn't doing enough for the Afghan people so we started a program called Operation Care". We now have 80+ volunteers that work with us giving out needed things to local Afghans. Your donations have really helped us and we thank you!

I am leaving the address up for those that wish to send clothing, shoes or very basic school supplies (pens, notebooks - please try to get the kind without the wire/spiral binding. No fancy stuff, crayons or art supplies).
