Letter from our Adopted Soldier!!

We received a great gift in today's mail...our first letter from our adopted soldier!! What a fun surprise!! We weren't sure if we'd ever hear from him, but we're so excited to have a letter from him!
He writes:
I wanted to thank you for all that you have sent me. It surely helped me out a lot. Sorry it took so long to write back but had a lot of stuff to do. Thank you for the letters they are great. I have been waiting for a package from back home for longer than it took your letters and packages to get here. Weird, huh? I wanted to say thank you for all you do and how you help total strangers out in your work, so I guess we have something in common. Medicine is not only of the body & mind, but spirit and heart. I am an old fashioned kind of guy. I have a wife and 2 girls who I adore more than life itself. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters and I am the youngest out of all. I have one brother in Iraq and my sisters are still stateside. As for being the youngest, I know how it feels to be left out of just about everything. I also have the best of friends over here. The best team that consists of three others. We are mechanics, sort of like what you do except instead of humans we do on vehicles. Have to get back to work now. It's been an honor to write you and I will write you a letter again soon! Freedom for all!!! (Those words were underlined). From Groll, Robert J US ARMY PS-Thanks for being an angel... SOLDIERS ANGEL!!! (underlined)
