To the Editor:

I would like to start off by saying thank you for the box of goodies. I can't thank you all enough for the support. As you probably already know, I am from Wallowa County and was born and raised in Wallowa. I have been in the army for over five years now and that was the first support box I have ever received, except from family. When I saw the address on the box I thought, "Why would these people be sending me something?" When I opened the box and saw what you all did I shed a tear. Yes, a 25-year-old man crying and in the army. That box meant so much to me I could come hug every one of you. As you know the world is not so good right now for us in the army and the littlest thing means a lot to us. Well, thanks again and it would be really cool to hear from you all soon. Good luck in life and all you do. I wish you the best New Year ever. And sleep in peace because I've got your back always. Gosh I miss that place.
