Good morning ma-am,  Our unit here in Afghanistan recently received a package from the Blue Star Moms of Valencia County.  Included were some notes from some children at the Bosque Farms Elementary School.  ... Everyone here was excited to get the packages, and we put them out in a common area for everyone to be able to share.

I have quite a few younger brothers and sisters back home, so it was cool for me to get the kid's [sic] notes and artwork.  Please pass along our thanks!

Dear 4th and 5th graders of Bosque Farms Elementary School.

I am very honored to receive such gracious cards from each and everyone of you.   The hearts of all servicemen and servicewomen are beating for you. We stand ready to defend you from anything in the world.

I wanna thank you for your thoughts and kind words.  A little kindness in the world can go a long way and as Americans we strive to represent our home,  families, and values in the best possible way.

This kindness you have given me today is further testimony to the great country which we live in. Listen to your teachers and learn because the pen is always mightier than the sword.

You may not understand that now but some day you will. Try to make good grades and never be afraid to ask for help. ...
