Good news. The soldier, Mike _________, for whom I collected donations toward care packages over the 2010 holiday season, is coming home. I received an email from Soldiers' Angels telling me the news and telling me to hold off sending him additional packages. I was lax in getting out packages after Christmas and got the first one after Christmas or January out in March. I was working on getting a new one out this past weekend but I received the email from Soldiers' Angels on Saturday and that was that.
Here is what they sent me:
You are receiving this email from Soldiers' Angels because your adoptive soldier SPC Michael _
(last name redacted by me)__ is due home. Here are the specifics: (they did not give any specifics - go figure). I wouldn't send anything more! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! Remember even if you never heard from your soldier your effort was appreciated!
If you would like a new adoptee just use the angel login at http://approvedangels.com with your email: (redacted by me) and your password: (redacted by me) (you may have to copy and paste the link)
Thanks for supporting the troops!
p.s.if the link gives you problems just dp a line to email@example.com we could definitely use your help again we have a ton of soldiers waiting for angels
So, I guess i will be asking them to assign me a new soldier and I can use the items I already bought for he next package I was making for Mike _______ on the next guy. I am hoping Mike _______ will contact me. I received several emails thanking me for the packages and then lost the email he was using, which was not the same one that Soldiers' Angels had on file. They had a military email address for him but he contacted me using a personal email address. So Mike, if you are reading this, drop me a line. ope you make it home safe and secure.
As for the rest of you, thanks again for your help with donations toward the packages. You are good Americans!
All the best,
