For many of us, this is our third deployment to Iraq. In my Battalion we have 846 Soldiers and in my eyes every one of them is a hero. The heroes that often get overlooked are the ones on the home front that support us. I personally have been married for 11 years and out of that, I have been on 5 major deplotments. She could have easily walked away numerous times and I just wanted to thank her and all the other spouses who stand behind their Soldier. The care packages that people send us are very much appreciated. Getting a care package from an elementary school will crack the hardest Soldier every time and puts everything in perspective. Thank you to all the Spouses, Parents, Family Members, Friends, supporters, and most of all America. ~~CSM Randall ------, Ludowici/Fort Stewart, Ga.

I just wanted to thank all of you for your support. I agree with you when you say that it is a selfless job that we do, but we couldn't do it without the support of great Americans like yourselves. Thank you! ~~Cpl Jarvie ------, USMC, Salt Lake City
I truly have missed the Aloha!! Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers you have sent. The Aloha spirit has touched us and kept us safe. We are looking forward to being back on the beautiful beaches and catching up on the time we missed away from Hawaii!! ~~SGT -------, US Army, Makakilo
First I want to say THANK YOU to everyone back in the states. The support we receive by letters gives us morale and a reminder of why we chose to serve and protect America. Second, everyone who has supported me somehow back in Wisconsin...Thank you very much. Being half way around the world it means a lot. I appreciate everything you have done...I will be home soon! ~~Amn Christina -------, USAF Security Forces, Chili, WI
