Dear H.O.M.E.,

I would personally like to thank you for all the care packages. As a proud Soldier serving in honor of Operation Enduring Freedom it warms my heart to know there are organizations that care so much. Your packages makes us feel appreciated and drives us to continue to fight for the men and women of our great country. I wish I could explain in words how much of a morale booster your packages are for me and the soldiers who serve along side of me. During the holiday seasons when so many Soldiers are alone and away from their families receiving a package with a letter from a young American showing their appreciation for our service is amazing. Sorry it took so long for me to send a message back I apologize, but with the demanding task, connectivity problems and fight against the taliban it sometimes is a challenge to find five minutes of personal time. I set aside this time to thank you and let you know your work is not going without being noticed. I have received countless packages from you and I have shared with over 300 soldiers. Of all the packages I think everyone loved the chips and cheese dip the most, I must say it has put smiles on many soldiers faces. When I get back to the states in the next several months I would love to donate to your organization. My Battalion Commander would also like to send a token of his appreciation on Behalf of the men and women of 2-5 INF Battalion. So please continue to help the Soldiers of 2-5, but also the other Soldiers spread out over the middle east. You have a great organization and it really means allot to us. So again I would like to say THANKS HOME.

P.S. will we be looking forward to more Chips and Dip

CPT J'Varis Jackson
Adjutant

4th Annual HOME Golf Tournament - Friday, April 19, 2013

The week of the 4th Annual HOME Golf tournament turned out to be a stressful and confusing week for this American.

Stressful for what occurred in a small town of Texas called West. So many lives lost in a horrific accident.

Confusing for what transpired in Boston, Massachusetts and continued on into Watertown. So many lives changed forever and for no other reason than to just kill and scar hundreds of innocent human beings that happen to live in these United States of America. I'm confused by this incident aren't you?

While the jrROTC of Pearland High School under the direction of Sgt Major Grant presented our amazing colors for the tournament, and the third grade choir of Cline Elementary School of Friendswood, directed by Ms. Glynis David led us all in the Pledge of Allegiance followed by our National Anthem. These towns, their citizens and what took place crept into my mind.
