Troop Letters

Thanks from Kuwait HQ responsible for processing all troops deploying throughout the Middle East.

Dear OTA:

Thank you very much for the items and the Christmas cards that were sent over.
We distributed these to HQ and among those who transit our base as an administrative step in tracking their missions in Iraq and Syria.
The tide pods and smell good items were extremely favored.
The women said thank you for thinking of them, and everyone mentioned how good of quality the razors were.
We cook the food among different sections of HQ to make it seem more like home.

While the items were delivered directly to our HQ, we could not take immediate pictures due security regulations of our sections.
So we brought them out the next day for PT to take pictures then .
One of our guys actually got injured that day during PT, so while he was laying on the ground we just put a bag beside him so he could semi-participate in the photos.
He was in extreme pain but laughed when we did it. So way to go in making the pains of war disappear.
