Letters from the Troops


Here is some of the correspondence that we have received from a few of our satisfied customers;



February 17, 2010


To whom it may concern:

First of all I would like to say thank you for all the support from you and everybody like you back home. So lets see, I got my football here at Sather AB in Baghdad Iraq during our Super Bowl party on February 7, 2010. It was an awesome event, one of the few times when we got to have real beer (only 2 per person). It really brought people together here in the sand box.


It was during the first half of the game and I had just cracked open my second beer when the football was thrown out into the crowd. Before you know it, the ball went into a tip drill and I was able to come down with it, WITHOUT spilling a single drop on the life giving beer. Now, you can ask any wide receiver, that is true concentration.


Well, I just wanted to say thank you for everything and know you brought some fun to this unit's time in the sand.

Greetings from Baghdad!

Today we received the 26 footballs and air pump you shipped to us...thanks so much.  In time for a few warm ups prior to the Super Bowl.
The troops will enjoy the footballs and we will be sharing some of them with the Air Force MWR facility here on Sather AB.  You can be assure the footballs will be put to good use....and soon.
Thanks for your efforts and your donations, please express our gratitude to your donors.  We appreciate your encouragement to the USO staff here and to the service members who will enjoy playing a little football of their own.
Very Respectfully,

Thanks for your support!


Most people just forget about us and we're a sideline on the news, so it is real nice for a gift of footballs to remind us that there's people who care.


Thanks and God bless.
