I wanted to share this card I received from SPC J. Ryan from Ft. Jackson, SC. This note was thanking all of the volunteers on Mitzvah Day who crafted Hanukiot for Jewish soldiers abroad. J. Ryan says "That so many of you thought about those of us who are away from home in service to the country is the best present that I could have received. Jews make up such a small number in the military that it's a treat to have family away from family".
Our crafts were sent with other goodies to Jewish soldiers as part of Project MOT, which operates as part of Operation Gratitude. This goes to show you how much just a little bit of work here is appreciated elsewhere...
Wishing you all a happy holiday season.
