To all our generous supporters,

First and foremost I would like to thank you for all the support and contributions that you all have sent. My name is LTJG Mark A. L, and I am a part of the crew that relieved CDR Julia Buck’s group at Al Taqqadum Iraq. She has given me the privilege to continue correspondence with all the generous supporters who have contributed so much to our wounded American and Iraqi nationals that come through our door. I personally want to thank you for all the support and contributions that you all have sent. There are no words to describe the joy of seeing the expressions of the men and women you have affected. The gratitude they experience as they receive the gifts you all have sent, realizing that a complete stranger cared enough to send them something during their worst of times. There are no medications in my formulary that can mimic that sense of elation for these men and women. It has been a pleasure and privilege to distribute your contributions. We thank you for your continued support. Please feel free to contact me for any comments, questions, or concerns. Again, thank you.


LTJG Mark A. L.

“Spring Fling for the Fisher Houses”

Soldiers Angels are currently having a Spring Fling for the Fisher Houses. A Fisher House serves as a “home away from home” for the families of military personnel and veterans seeking medical care at major military and VA medical centers. They are designed to accommodate 16 to 42 family members at any time and feature common kitchens, large communal dining rooms and living areas stocked with books and toys for the children. Families can stay free of charge.

The average stay in hospital for a combat- wounded serviceman or woman is 45-60 days, and in many cases can go well into a year or more. Providing the means for families to be with their loved ones is critical in their recovery process. All of the houses are built by the Fisher House Foundation, and Soldiers Angels works with the House staff to meet their ongoing needs. As the number of combat casualties continues to climb, these facilities will be called upon to serve more and more families. Read the rest of this entry »

An Irish blessing for our sons and daughters

The love and affection of the angels be to you,
The love and affection of the saints be to you,
The love and affection of heaven be to you,
To guard and to cherish you.
May God shield you on every step,
May He aid you on every path,
And may He hold you safe on every slope,
On every hill and on every plain;
On earth and on sea until you are home again.

“Thank you very much”

I just wanted to thank you for the gift box you sent me. My time is up over there and I’m going to be going home. I have enclosed a picture of my crew. I can’t begin to tell you how much your support has meant to us out here and that you’re all doing something great for your country and its Service Members. Thank you very much. I’m leaving your flyer out for the guys that are here now and the ones coming out.

May Peace find it’s way to you and your family.
Thank you.

I couldn’t have asked for a better group to work with and better group to support us.

“Operation Cookie” Girl Scout Cookies to the Troops

from the above link: Thanks to the support of generous Long Islanders, more than one million Girl Scout Cookies have been sent to U.S. Troops overseas. 2006 marks the fourth year that Operation: Cookie has helped make our servicemen and women feel a little closer to home.

Girl Scouts of Suffolk County invites all to help send Girl Scout Cookies to U.S. military troops stationed overseas by participating in Operation: Cookie. Since 2003, we have provided individuals and organizations the opportunity to purchase Girl Scout cookies that GSSC will send in their name and with their messages to soldiers serving in the U.S. military.
