It's time again. Time to start of Operation Holiday Stockings. This is our 5th year, the first year being 2005 when my LT was in Iraq. The promise is still in place. As long as we have soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, we will continue with Operation Holiday Stockings.
I'm not sure if you can see the expressions of wonderment and joy on these soldiers faces, but they were so thrilled to know that a group of people back home cared enough to send them a box of stockings. This unit decorated the hall with our stockings, together with tables full of stockings, and they celebrated the holiday with a bit of our love.
If you know a soldier who will be away from loved ones over the holidays, please email me at ramsddj at aol dot com so we can include him/her this year. It is so important they know we love and support them, and that they have our prayers.
Check out our Yahoo Group page for more information and pictures. You can also check out my postings during October - December 2008 for more pictures and information.
On behalf of our soldier, we thank you for your continued support and love.
