To the editor,

Iíve been doing Operation Camouflage since Oct. 2007. I wanted to let you know what a wonderful town and surrounding communities we have. They all have blessed our soldiers so much with the outpouring of love and support. The soldiers said they couldnít do their jobs very well if the firemen and law enforcement agencies and paramedics didnít take care of their families while they are away. They want to give them a big thank you!

The donated items and donated money to mail the items, all the schools for their letters, Christmas cards, and drawings - thank you! Thank you to the Girl Scouts, the businesses and the many churches that helped.

I can proudly say we have sent 97 boxes of donated items and three Christmas trees. My goal is to get over 20,000 get well cards or letters for the wounded soldiers in hospitals.

You can drop them off at Burkeís Outlet across from HEB. We have a list of what the soldiers need and you can also drop off donations there as well.

If you have a loved one who needs a care package, just let us know and I will be happy to send them one. If you need more information, call Virginia at 254-965-9898.

Thank you soldiers for fighting for our freedom. Iím so proud of our cities and Iím proud to be an American.

God Bless the USA!
