troop letter: Spc Alexander F.
April 20, 2008
I would first like to say thank you for the packages over my previous deployment and this last one included. They are some of the best I’ve received. This is a 15 month deployment. I got here about 3 weeks ago but it feels longer this time for some reason.
I have 11 people in my section including the CO and 1SG. I’m in Headquarters Platoon this time and I work at night again. It’s nice, I don’t have to deal with a lot of people. I don’t have to leave the FOB. We have about 100 people in the company.
I put most of the stuff you send me in the share box. The only thing that doesn’t make it there is the coffee because that goes in the freezer and the people in the CP (where I work) drink that. We usually have 4-5 pots a day. Suzanne has told me a lot about what you do and I know the soldiers you support appreciate what you do. It is a big morale booster. I would just like to say thank you one more time and enjoy the rest of your day.
