My name is 1SG E. [ ] and I'm with the 244th ECAB HHC and currently deployed to Kuwait. I have been going through a lot of the boxes and cleaning up here and it seems you guys have been awesome in the past sending items here. I want to say thank you. I have a bunch of people separated at different locations across the theater. I don't know if you can still send any more packages but we are definitely low on soap and baby wipes. Of course we appreciate anything and if you need anything additional from me, please let me know. Sincerely,1 SG E. [ ]
