Today I received a letter from one of the servicemen to whom I sent books. It was my first confirmation that the packages I sent arrived at their destinations.
It was a nice letter. It went over the categories of books I sent him, explaining how he appreciated each one. I was impressed; I hope he has an opportunity to write professionally in the future.
He also confirmed something that someone not in the military had told me: Outside of work, there’s very little for the soldiers to do. I was worried that I’d sent too many books. I’m now assured that that’s not the case!
