There are no words.

Patti Patton-Bader
Founder, Soldiers Angels


My name is [redacted]. My son was a computer wizard and communication specialist with [redacted] and most recently at Camp Ramadi, Iraq.

I wanted you to know that you and your many Angels are doing a great job. I would mail my son magazines and cookies every Saturday. He has told me several times how much he appreciated the mail I sent him and when he was home on leave in June he told me of the letters your Angels were sending to him.

Patti, I have found your letter to my son tonight as I was going through all of his mail that he had saved and some of the mail that I had sent to him that he never received.

My son died of non-combat related medical complications at [redacted]. My son was buried with full Military Honors and among many Medals he received the Bronze Star. Services were held at Arlington National Cemetery on York Street near a nice Maple tree.

Please spread the word to your Angels how much your letters of basic humble trivia are appreciated. My son never answered letters or emails but had a few emails on his email account from your Angels and as I have said previously he has several letters that have been read and I know appreciated very much.

I am not able to convey my appreciation for your support of our Troops and of our son.

With utmost Sincerity,

[name redacted]
