Editor,

I would like to thank the fine elementary students and Principal Romano and teachers here in Blanco for doing Christmas card for the company of Marines in Camp Bastion Afghanistan. This is the second year they have done this. Also the fine young middle school students who did Christmas cards for another company of Marines at Camp Leatherneck Afghanistan.

A lot of these Marines have children of their own and will be missing them at Christmas time. Last year’s email from those Marines indicated that it reminded them of their own children and made it a lot easier at this time of year to be away from family and friends. Being in the service from 1968-70 and not being home for Christmas for the first time during Christmas season is just not the same. So sometimes the little things we do make a big difference in people’s live.

As President Regan once said, “Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don’t have that problem.” So you young students in Blanco you really did make a difference in someone’s life.
