Daniel Lohmann is back home! He along with his mom, Betty, and girl friend, Carrie, came to visit Janice, Connie, and me at the 920 Wildwood building on December 30, 2010.

Daniel will be here until the middle of January, then he will be returning to his duty station in Hawaii. For those who don’t know him, Dan is a remarkable young man who looked after his buddies and organized a massive pen pal letter writing group while stationed in Afghanistan.

I’ve also got home coming news for a couple other soldiers too. Joyce Muenks told me that Seth Muenks was scheduled to leave for home near December 23rd and Trisha Garrison said that Shalamar Brewington “is home for good, just reserves at this time.”

Mr. Lauer,
How are you? Things are good here. Very busy.
I should have taken the time to write you sooner. I have received many boxes from you over the last couple of months. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Everything has been great! The Christmas Tree was AWESOME! I really appreciate what you and your group do for the troops.
Your nephew, Wally Klein, is awesome! I have also received several boxes from him and his family. Thank you so much for getting us in touch with each other. He is truly an amazing person at such a young age.
Thanks again for all that you do.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
