Speaking of Soldiers Angels

Yesterday I received a letter in the mail that I nearly discarded because it was in an unusual brown envelope. Thank goodness I didn’t, as it turned out to be a lovely thank you from a British soldier serving alongside America’s bravest in Iraq. Back in June, I participated in a web-a-thon hosted by Michelle Malkin and Melanie Morgan, by purchasing four care packages to be shipped to American Military members stationed overseas. This British soldier wrote to tell me that my contribution to the cause was generously shared with him by an enlisted American, one of many who sympathize with their British counterparts due to the lack of support they receive from their own countrymen. While this news made me even prouder of the United States of America, its military and its loyal, troop-loving citizens, I also felt intense sadness for Britain’s courageous warriors, knowing how tough it is for them to experience the same outpouring of encouragement and consideration. So, Sergeant Lee Reynolds, thank you for your service and enjoy the goodies in the care package. You certainly deserve them. Stay safe and God bless!
