To encourage and fortify relationships between military service members, veterans, their families, their friends, and their Country; to nurture the path of communication for everyone, ensuring that no one is alone or left behind; and proving that we have not, are not, and will never forget the nobility of their sacrifices.

Many Thanks and Appreciation

I would like to send out many thanks to Mrs. Rachel Vincent's English classes and Mellisa Ash's Study Hall and their students at Lassen Union High School for writing letters, poems, and drawing pictures.  I also send out my gratitude to Mrs. McKee's students, Mrs. Ovitz, and Mrs. Bricker's and their students for writing letters, drawing pictures, and send Holiday Cheer from Janesville Union School.

All of the correspondence that I collected I made copies of and sent out to four individual address, to soldiers in either Iraq or Afghanistan, and the USO Base in Qatar.  The USO Base is where soldiers go when they get a 4 day pass, have combat stress leave, or are recovering from a minor injury.

I would also like to than Mrs. DeKock for helping with postage, which was especially appreciated since postage went up as of the first of the year.

Thanks to each and every person who helped by participating in some way to get an envelope to a soldier down range.  During the Holidays when people miss home the most, I am sure everything was very appreciated.
