Good Morning, I just arrived in Erbil Iraq and received an awesome Care Package from you all and just wanted to thank you. We have a Care Package self that Soldier, Airman, Marines and Navy can come and take what they need/want. Let me tell you a little about myself, my name is Jimmy Sanderson but people call me Sergeant Sanderson. This is my 4th deployment to the middle east, I had 3 in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. I am a Chaplain Assistant, A chaplain is preacher to Military personnel, he is also someone that is just there when someone wants to talk or have someone to listen. I basically do the same but I don't preach and I assist him with what he needs. This is my last tour and just started and it is a 9 month deployment. The main reason I am writing is because in all my deployments I have received packages from different school, companies, churches and I always meant to write them and thank them but things get busy here and I forget and then when I get home I regret not thanking them because I see the impact it has on Soldiers, Airmen, Marines, and the Navy. So this tour I decided no regrets. Let me explain to you about this deployment, it isn't just American Soldiers but there are atleast 6 other countries that are here, the countries are: Germany, Hungary, Canadians, Italians, Belgiums and United Kingdom. There are also Non-Military here and we even have help from the local population. They are all here to make sure that their country is safe from bad people. I have attached a picture of myself to make it more personal and a picture of the Care package area so you can see where your donations go. Thank you again and hope to hear back from you. ~Jimmy
