One Chaplain from Camp Taji Iraq wrote the Blue Star Mothers of Louisiana: “Thank you for all that you have done for the soldiers and sailors here…..Your care packages have helped over 10,865 soldiers and sailors on this deployment feel the comforts of home while they struggled with the heat and rain. They are taken back at how gracious people back home have been…so keep up the good work.”
