Arizona Army Air National Guard SSgt. Marco L. Lechuga has deployed to Iraq to serve in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. This deployment is Lechuga’s third one-year tour of duty to Iraq. Lechuga is an H-60 Black Hawk helicopter crew chief and one of the helicopter side-door gunners. He is assigned to A Company, 2-285th Aviation Regiment based at Phoenix, AZ.
Marco's birthday is February 22nd. I sent off this care package with instructions that he had to share his birthday snacks with his unit. His "real gift" was a picture of him and my Lola, my grandmother on my Mom's side. He was very much the grandma's boy growing up.
i thought the birthday card was too cute! The wolf credo includes "Respect your elders / Cooperate with the pack / Rest inbetween/ & Leave Your Mark."
so i was hoping if you lovies could help me out like you graciously did before. If you have the time, i would be ever so thankful if you could send out a birthday card or note to him in Iraq. I can just imagine mail call as the days get closer to his birthday, and in come in your wonderful cards.
as his sister, i can think of nothing better (besides having him home). If you would like to wish him a happy birthday, please email me at micaela.lechugaATgmail.com . I'll be more than happy to give you my brother's mailing address. All it costs is a stamp if you're in the U.S.
for all of you who do, because it means so much to me, i'll keep track of your name and you'll be entered in a giveaway.
the lovely Danielle of Dinosaur Toes is donating this leather bow tie necklace handmade from her etsy shop that i have and LOVE. It is really gorgeous and one-of-a-kind.
I'll chose the lucky winner of this giveaway on his birthday, February 22nd.
Thank-you dearest friends in advance, and Danielle you are AWESOME!!! thank-you xo
