Dear Mom and Dad,
I got your four boxes of dri fire t-shirts in the mail today. How many did you order? I think we got about 150. I was able to distribute two to everyone in the company, minus a couple of the XL guys, they only got one. The dri fire guys also sent us 12 baseball caps which I passed around to all the PSG's and PL's.
Today celebrates (well, I guess you could say celebrates) one year deployed from Alaska. I departed Fort Richardson on October 3rd, 2006, and today is October 3rd, 2007. What a year. So we had a big company bar-b-q to celebrate. This morning began with a huge company photograph since first platoon came down from Baghdad, and an awards ceremony. Then all afternoon we played flag football. Tonight we're having a big bar-b-q with burgers, chicken, and steaks. A relaxing day of sorts. So, it was good that first platoon was here to get there t-shirts.
I will e-mail you a copy of the company photo we took this morning to distribute among all your friends and family that have supported us. I think every church newsletter needs a copy.
Thanks again for the never ending love and support you have given me and my Sappers.
