these are the pillowcases that I mailed to the contractors embedded with the AF. The kids in my kinder class picked them out and included a Valentine's Day card:
And here is the note that I got from the big muscle guy! It made me cry.
well hello Tucson moms.i have one of your pillow cases.it is so wonderful.the pillow case I have was picked out for me by marisa in mrs.pawloski'sclass.it was made by sue l .it is the pink one with kitty cats on it.i picked it because I have three kitties of my own in corpus Christi .my wife takes care of them while I'm away..i miss them very much.we are not allowed to have any pets here so the gerbels are our pets.they are so easily tamed.a few pieces of cerial flicked their way and they'll jump up in your hand or crawl up your leg to get more.we named one gerbel liberty.she would come out of her rock pile where she had her nest when you called her name.the pillow case is so great because it is so cold here.our huts are made of thin plywood and is always freezing at nite.the pillow cases I have here are of some type of material that gets cold easily.i had to keep both under my sleeping bag to keep them warm or they would get get so cold I couldn't sleep on them without shivering.i came up with the idea of putting some of my tshirts on the pillows instead.now I have one pillow with a tshirt on it and the other is the pink one with kittes on it.and now I sleep so sound without a chilly pillow under my head.we are aircraft mechanics working for the airforce.our planes watch over our troops when they are on patrol or on their base.we have a lot of pride that were saving American lives and helping shorten the war.if only the politicians would do the same.this country isn't worth one drop of American blood.we've seen to many medevac helicopters come in and to many fallen soldier ceremonys here.GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS BOTH STATESIDE AND OVERSEAS.GOD BLESS YOU ALL FOR YOUR KINDNESS,YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.I am a Christian and GOD has watched over me and my friends when we're being rocketed and mortared.Thank you again for thinking about us all here. sincerely DENNIS
Sue, I could barely read all of that through my tears. God Bless Dennis and all of his brothers and sisters in arms. I just want to hug him!
I love that note! and that he got a pc that I actually made, PRICELESS!
To All the Moms,
I wish to thank you for all of your hard work with the pillowcases. Each one is really appreciated. I am part of a medical company that takes care of wounded soldiers and we frequently change out bedclothes. I am using a pillowcase sown by Cindy S. It has teddy bears in scrubs. Quite fitting actually.
Again, thank you for your hard work!
