I thought I would tell a little bit of information about the troop that the packages are being sent to. It is a group of soldiers stationed in South Korea. According to the private in charge of the donations, morale is very low because their mission was just extended even longer. I can't imagine what this feels like, especially so close to the holidays. More and more donations are coming in everyday and I couldn't be more excited to reward these people for their sacrifices!
Well, I've gotten all the stockings put together with help from my mom and Steve. Now, I have to write 50 letters to send to each of these deserving heroes! I will admit that I waited until the last minute to write them, but I am determined to get them done.
As I was writing letter number 42, (yes when you write that many letters in such a short amount of time you like to keep track... haha!), I was listening to Pandora on my iPod. I was super tired when the song "Letters from Home" came on. It was just what I needed to keep me going. It is very important for these letters to be included because soldiers love hearing from back home. If you haven't heard this song, please take a listen!
