Recently my children received packages in the mail from their Daddy who is in Afghanistan. Inside the packages were books, and with the books were DVD’s of their Daddy reading them the books. They were both super excited to see Daddy, and to get new books.
Let’s pretend my bed was made shall we? It would have been except my children immediately wanted to see their Daddy and I wasn’t going to stop them, so I waited and it was worth it. The looks on their faces were priceless.
The program is awesome, and they have some great books. It really does help soldiers connect with their munchkins from far away, and what child doesn’t like getting a package especially from another country.
If you have a deployed soldier or know someone who does, have them ask about this program or if their is a USO near them, they can also use this link to get more information 🙂
