If you received a card from us, then our efforts were worthwhile. We hope you were blessed. Share your card with a friend if they did not receive one. You might be wondering who the person that signed it was. It was a kid, a friend, a parent, a girl, a boy, a grandmother, or any one who cared. They all want to send you a smile, a laugh, a greeting, to say Thank You for the efforts you are putting forth. We pray that you are home soon.
If perhaps your friend or buddy received a card, but you did not, we are sorry. I wish every soldier out there could receive a card, but my resources are limited, and the details of getting them to each soldier is very difficult Please click on the photos, and read what some of the cards said. You are included in our thank you, we appreciate your willingness to serve our country. Praying for your safe return.
Thank you so much for serving your country. You are a true hero!

I appreciate you giving me the warm note from Wreaths Across America yesterday.
I am the Medical Officer of Squadron 188 of the Civil Air Patrol based at Oakland International Airport. Squadron 188 is a search & rescue squadron. It is named after Amelia Earhart and was founded in 1988.
After the 9/11 attacks, I was looking for a way to serve my community & my country. I was a medical student at the time & recognized that unless I was a full fledged Physician that I would not be able to meet my potential to help.
In 2006 while in post doctoral training I was able to find what comported best for me, which was to join the Civil Air Patrol which is the auxiliary of the United States Air Force. It has been terrific teaching the squadron medical issues related to flying, and in general. I also teach the squadron First Aid & CPR/AED classes annually as an instructor for the American Red Cross.
I live and work in San Francisco as an Internist.
I hope my story was interesting to you to read.
Thank you for coming out yesterday, bearing the cold & meeting with me after the ceremony. Please keep supporting every person who serves the help our great nation in whatever capacity one does. I know I appreciate it & I’m sure I speak for all who wear a uniform like myself. I hope you like the picture attached to this email.
