" This week has been particularly long and draining, but receiving your care packages drastically improved the mood in the office. Everybody stopped work to open their care packages together and there was a collective group of heartfelt smiles. It made our day to receive the treats and I can't say enough about the cards we received from some great kids back home. We collected the stuffed animals that you sent and will be sharing them with Afghan children who visit an Egyptian Army field hospital here at Bagram. I have included a picture of myself with my buddies Major "Polad" Zielinski and Major "Moose" Sherry taken near the Khyber Pass just across from Pakistan."
