A Letter From a Friend in Iraq I Want to Share

Recommended Posts

Chuck Schick

Guys-

 

Some friends of mine in Hollywood started an effort to get boxes of DVDs to our men and women in Iraq to help entertain them and keep spirits up during downtime.

 

 

Here is the latest letter from Iraq:

 

I know this letter is long overdue, but since I've recovered your

letter, I wanted to say thank you for the box sent back in the summer.

Not long after your package arrived, I took command of a motorized

infantry company, and distributed your thoughtful gift of movies out to

my soldiers. The day after, 2/3 of our building cought fire and burned

up, luckily no one was injured, mostly just personal items lost and

such. Well, I just recovered your soot covered leter today, having

previously thought it was lost, and I wanted to thank you for your

generosity. My soldiers have put your movies to good use, and I kept

the special "bunny" one for myself.

 

Some quick info about us, my men and I are directly responsible for

patrolling the streets of Bayji, Iraq. Bayji is located at the tip of

the Sunni Triangle, just north of Tikrit, in the homeland of Saddam.

Unfortunately we have made the news a couple times with terrist attacks

and the loss of soldieres, however we remain vigilant each and every day

to keep the bad guys out and order in this chaotic environment. We not

only conduct offensive operations against insurgents, but also provide

humanitarian relief efforts to civilians, work directly with the local

police (providing training and guidance), and secure the main routes to

ensure safety of both civilans and military traffic. Every day is a new

adventure, however our days are numbered with the news of finishing our

mission sometime in February.

 

I hope to continue a correspondence, and I will try and reciprocate your

generosity with something special from my unit. I've attached a couple

of pics, one of me with some kids and the other of my guys in action.

I'm gonna owe Chuck a couple of shots for linking us up.

 

Thanks again and God bless,

 

Mike

This is really nice. I hope as many come back safely as possible.

 

I have one question, though.

 

I kept the special "bunny" one for myself.

Did someone send "The Brown Bunny" to them? (It's just not the movie I was envisioning our soldiers with.)

Think Hefner.
