Re: OT - Wonderful web tribute to the Armed forces

Thank you so much! I know it takes a lot of time to do these projects but what a wonderful thing to do. I can't imagine some boys(men) over in Iraq that don't get anything from anyone!
If anyone else wants to send anything to Russ (Scott Russell Shinn) I will add his address at the bottom of this page. He can give out anything to the other soldiers if you will just address it to him otherwise for security reasons they are not getting things that don't have a specific soldiers name on it.
Thank you again Melody!
this is from my nephew's wife, Tonya.
Russ and I were able to talk for several minutes this afternoon. He phoned on the satellite phone and the connection was terrible :( He sounded so good, but very tired. They have, as you can imagine, been working hard and have not spent much time back at the base. Once in a while someone goes back to check for mail and cards/letters are very appreciated. I can't tell you how wonderful it was to hear from him.

Thank you for continuing to keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Tricia: I wanted you to know that yesterday I sent a bunch of Christmas
cards from my Brownnie Girl Scout troop to your nephew with a card to
him explaining who I was. Hope he gets them in time for Christmas
delivery. Our little girls (3rd graders) were so happy to have this
project to do for the soldiers and they spent a good amount of time
during our last meeting writing notes in the cards and drawing pictures.
Thanks for sharing this opportunity with them.

Donna,<br>That was so moving... thanks for sharing.<br>If any of you
want to send cards for the holidays my nephew said they have<br>about 29
soldiers in his platoon that would love to receive a card for
the<br>holidays. He offered to distribute them to the guys that don't
get anything
