You're in the Army Now

heart was truly touched today.
dinner I walked back to my office and was
surprised to find mail waiting for me… the
package had been sent to me was huge and it
didn’t have an address that I recognized on
it. So (after checking to make sure it
wasn’t ticking) I opened it.
After reading the note I learned that the
package came from the North Georgia Mopar
Club. The NGMC is first and foremost a car
club but they also give back by doing
different volunteer work. One of the
programs that they have is called the
“Hero’s Fund” in which they send care
packages to Soldiers deployed to Iraq and
Afghanistan. They received my name from one
of their members and decided to send a care
package for me and my unit. Now let me tell
you… this was not an average care package…
it was AMAZING!
Ladies and Gentlemen, You name it… they
sent it. Magazines, games, cards, pens,
postcards, socks, toothbrushes, toothpaste,
baby wipes, germ-ex, q-tips, girl scout
cookies, candy, gum, oatmeal, granola bars,
drink mixes, ramen noodles, tuna kits for
lunch, razors, shaving cream, deodorant, and
I just want to say thank you to the North
GA Mopar Club. I do not personally know them
and they took the time and money to put
together an amazing care package for my unit
and I. It truly touches my heart to know
that people care so much. Thank you for
making us feel so loved and so appreciated.
I only wish that you could truly know how
much your care package meant to us.
** Note: I visited their website and
found their sponsors and charities page
(here). If you have money burning a hole in
your pocket, I would encourage you to make a
donation to their organization (I plan to
when I get home). I can vouch for the fact
that your money would go to the troops (the
items in the care package that I received
were not cheap and shipping a heavy box over
here is not cheap either).
