Default The 2nd letter from a Royal Marine Commando in Afghanistan.

This is the 2nd Bluey that arrived today again this Royal Marines units parcels were funded by the Troops Trophy .

Dear Gary & Cliff 19/04/11

I'm writing this Bluey to thankyou both for the boxes of
goodies that we received yesterday.

My name is #####, I'm a Royal Marine Commando serving in
the the ###-#-### district of Afghanistan I operate out of
patrol bases throughout the GREENZONE I work with a small
team and we're constantly moving around with very little
time off. Coming back to find Welfare boxes from 'Treats 4
Troops' on our beds certainly raised morale amongst my team.
The contents of these boxes was SPOT-ON and it is great to
be reminded of the support we get from people like yourselves.

Thanks again and please keep up the good work
##### .

Again not a BIG letter but it still highlights what these parcels from home mean to even elite units like the Royal Marines.
