I would like to thank you and the team at Paul VI for putting together all the care packages! I have a great photo of you and the lacrosse team from Paul VI with the stack of packages. These are just a few pictures from one of the teams in Wardak province talking to local school kids on a patrol and handing out some of the items from your packages. These teams are conducting operations every day and I am really proud of these guys. Please pass on my thanks and especially thanks from the Special Forces teams.
Tell your lacrosse team they look great and i wish you guys a great year together! Thank you for your patriotism!
