We found this letter in a "stack of stuff" in our office:
"Thank you for your letter about your organization's...efforts...
I commend all...who have participated in this program. Many of the American servicemen and women must be away from friends and families for long periods. I know that the mail they receive provides an important link to home and can ease the loneliness of being away from loved ones. Best wishes...
GEORGE W. BUSH"
have been sent by Friends of Our Troops
and our predecessors, since the founding of Vietnam Mail Call in 1965,
because our U.S. troops are Great Americans!
(And we have never dumped 300,000 pieces of mail at one location to be handled at the expense of the taxpayers!)
"We Can't Get Enough!"
OUR OFFICE RECEIVED THIS E-MAIL ON OCTOBER 21, 2002:
"My son is deployed... I submitted his name and address to your web site, and he just e-mailed me today saying that he had received over 300 'troop fan mail' letters. He was so touched, as well as his entire unit. As a Mom, I want to say a huge, big 'THANK YOU, YOU ALL ARE GREAT!' I appreciate your making my son feel appreciated and sharing some happiness. Thanks again."
A MESSAGE RECEIVED IN NOVEMBER 2002:
"Thank you each and every one of you. Don't let anyone stop you. You are doing a smashing job. God bless you all. Happy Holidays."

Also, the Friends of Our Troops office is not able to locate individuals.
In real life, Sarge would have received a package stuffed with fan mail (cards and letters)
to share with his buddies--and even with Beetle!
