Dear Soldiers' Angels...

I just wanted to say thank you. I was WIA on XX Sept 09. When I got to Bagram airfield in Afghanistan, there was a Purple Heart/ Soldiers Angels bag in my ICU room when I woke up.

It is so nice to know that after what I saw, what I did, and what me and my crew went through, there were people who already had us in mind. I sleep with the fleece blanket I got, the hygiene bag was wonderful, especially since mine burned to the ground with my vehicle. And the letters and cards from Karate for Kids in Utah made me smile.

On behalf of myself, SPC [redacted], the medic for my team, my TC, SGT [redacted], my gunner SGT [redacted], and most of all, my driver, PFC [redacted], who had the worst injuries of our crew, thank you so much.
