i got two thank-you cards in the mail recently from her and another soldier. One of the girls named Reba wrote this about my brother: "Your brother is such a great person. I've never met anyone like him. He's almost like an older brother to me as well. He makes sure I'm taken care of, Always."
She closed her letter with, "I'm pretty sure you know how hard it is for us to get necessities out here. It takes weeks for mail to come in. And it's so dusty and dirty here. So again, thank you very much for the lovely scents of HOME!!"
the feeling i felt... well, i wish i could bottle it up. I'm pretty proud of you Marco. As much as I miss you, I know I will see you again and I know right now you are serving a bigger purpose.
*lovies, his birthday is February 22nd, so you still have time to help me (his little sister) out by sending him birthday wishes. Details here.
