Letter addressed to Lieutenant Colonel Graves, family, friends and members of The World Peace Prayer Society
Soldiers really “want” for little to nothing given the environment we are in and the surrounding needs of the Afghan people. We would rather help the Afghan community. Two officers from my Charlie Medical Company are new committee members with Operation Outreach. This is a volunteer effort to support humanitarian causes in the country. Some of you may want to work with your church or social groups to collectively send school and art supplies, help pay for children’s’ medical procedures, purchase blankets, coats, hats, etc. Operation Outreach has even paid for visas in order to send children and families to other countries for specialty care.
To nurture creativity, see the attached picture and write-up regarding High School students who are being supported to develop their creative gifts. Americans have so much EXCESS. If we share just a little, each in our own way, to show the Afghan people that we care about their physical, emotional and spiritual needs then we are helping to cultivate a world of peace and cooperation.
I am very excited about the work of Operation Outreach. As for my special contribution, I have also chosen to work directly with the World Peace Prayer Society ( www.worldpeace.org ) to spread the World Peace Message, “May Peace Prevail On Earth”, here on Camp Phoenix and in the Capital region.
If you want to support the troops from where you are, help us by supporting the development, joy, and hope for this war-torn country.
