To whom this may concern:
My name is SSG Goettl, Shane P. and I am currently serving in Iraq. I have been over here for 12 months now and it is starting to drag on. I have received my second package from this group. It is such an awesome feeling to get mail from somebody. Then to find out it is from people I don’t even know is even better. that is because it is from people like you who support us over here, and that now days is hard to find. What I found even more interesting is that you are from my home state, MN. I know exactly where St. James is and have been there many times. I grew up in St. Clair, MN and my family still live in the surrounding areas of Mankato and Mapleton. I can not express my gratitude enough. Your organization is unbelievable and your efforts are remarkable. Keep up your hard work and dedication, we truly thank you all for everything you have done for us. This may sound like a bunch of babbling, but I just want you to know how proud I am of you for creating this organization and sticking with it. As you can tell, the word is getting out across the US!
Thanks again for creating this organization and thanks for my two packages!
Love you all, Shane Goettl
