During the Truckers for Troops Telethon, we’re brining you letters from the members of our military overseas who have received care packages.
We received this letter from Andrew Phelps, a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps who served in helicopter maintenance in Iraq. As with many of the letters, it was addressed to Connie Beacraft, who coordinated the actual packages with fellow OOIDA staffers Nikki Johnson and Sherry Murry.
Hello Connie and friends,
We got a package from you all the other day. Thank you so much.
All the guys wanted me to thank you for everything you have done. Please extend our thanks to all the people who helped and gave so selflessly.
We appreciate you all very much, and it helps to remind us why we do what we do.
I have to go for now, but please keep in touch.
One other important note: Andrew has returned home from his overseas duty, and was recently married.
