It sure was a pleasant surprise to receive the package that you sent. The boys here helped me get the fullest enjoyment out of the consumption of the contents.
Your service club seems to be quite active and I know that most of the boys in the service feel the same way as I did when I received your package. One of the soldier’s few pleasures on the post is in receiving mail or packages and when something unexpected arrives he is all the more appreciative.
Best of luck to your club,
