Letter from Iraq:12/19/05

Dear Kathryn,
I got two more packages from you, plus the one addressed to
all of my guys. Some of them snatched up many of the CDs, and I’ll hold the
rest until they are needed. Of course the candy didn’t stand a chance.
Unfortunately, this post doesn’t have a PX, nor does it have phone service.
They do have a small ‘store’ operated by a Kurdish guy. It’s smaller than
Opie’s Lemonade stand and has just enough stuff to make one wonder why they even bother. But between you, my Mom and a precious few other folks from her church I get most of what keeps me floating here.
You have been faithful in sending e-
mails and packages, cards and letters. I can’t tell you how much
it means and can only hope that I can one day give
you proper thanks. Words on a computer just can’t suffice.
Well, I’ll close this for now, as the internet is spotty here. I typed you
one message and it shut down before I could send it . . . forcing me to
retype. God bless you and your readers.

Sgt. Danison’s address is:

Hey Sgt. Danno,
You and your guys deserve EVERY nice thing anyone can send you, and what I did was not nearly enough. You guys are taking care of the rest of us, and I am sure you don’t get nearly enough thanks and appreciation for your labors. I wish I could have done more.
By the way, let the guys have those leftover CD’s by Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
Kathryn
Please keep Sgt. Danison and the rest of the troops in your prayers, and please consider sending Andy a card of encouragement sometime in the next few months. I know it means a lot to our soldiers to get encouraging cards and letters to remind them that they are nor forgotten as time passes.
