Well, yesterday just seemed to be my day for unexpected surprises
First of all, I am not passing this on to 'toot my own horn"...but to share my giddy excitement,LOL. We troop supporters hear over and over how much our letters mean to the troops,like someone writes here
but I wonder if the troops know how much it means to US, when we receive an unexpected Thank You?
Because that is what I received yesterday, an unexpected 'Thank You"(and why there is a picture of coins with this post, the picture is from www.coinforce.com )
A soldier I had sent a card to, decided to thank me for the card by sending me his UNIT COIN!! Talk about totally blown away....I was awed and humbled, that my card meant enough to someone in Iraq that they sent ME something in return??!!
I never became a troop supporter EXPECTING anything in return, or EXPECTING anyone to send me thanks.....the soldiers I am writing to are,after all, in a war zone.
So when someone does take the time to say "Thank you", especially in a manner like this soldier did....well, it just makes your day, if you are a troop supporter!!
My second surprise was when I went by Milblogging.com and discovered THIS Milblogging Featured Member: Kathi See
Ok, I had no idea THAT was coming.....WOW,THANK YOU,JP!!
(and if you have a blog, and you're listed on Milblogging.com , DO go by there and 'Claim' your blog :)
Well, that is, I think, enough about Me,lol......on to 'where I have wandered on the web lately"..
I found this the other day......a Beautiful tribute to the latest Medal of Honor recipient...by a Third Grader
