We received 2 care packages on your behalf including the Keurig Coffee maker and the coffee cups from Subaru.  Together they have done a lot to increase our morale, seeing that coffee is the juice that gets us going in the morning. The tuna packets are a pleasant alternative for the days we are stuck with MRE’s.

We can’t begin to express our gratitude for all the thoughtful items you and your partners have sent us.  The fig bars go pretty quickly and the hygiene products are scooped up by people who need them within minutes.

We plan on having a cigar night later this week, I’ll be sure to include photos of the team enjoying them.

On behalf of the (team redacted) thank you!!!!    **Here I am pictured drinking coffee**
