I arrived home after a funeral today to find a special treat (and much needed smile) in my mailbox. Seeing that "free mail" always does the trick! This letter was received in response to our recent Operation Love From Home 4th of July card drive. Y'all truly made a great difference for this bunch of Marines (and several others, as well!).

Dear MamaKat,

We would like to take some time to thank you for sending us thank you cards. It means a lot to all of us over here when we receive thank you cards; it lets us know that people are still supporting us. Once again we would like to thank you for all your support.


The Marines
(and each Marine in the platoon signed the letter)

How cool is that?! Great job y'all.... you did good. Remember, thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner, so start thinking of ways to gather up bunches of holiday cards and goodies for our heroes!!! Stay tuned to our website for more details re: our upcoming holiday card drives. You rock, each and every one of y'all!
