It's from SPC Steven Graulau--a man I've never met (yet!)--- currently serving in Iraq. Steven, along with a number of other soldiers serving our nation in Iraq and Afghanistan, received comic books from Flying Colors as a part of the terrific effort made by moms of our soldiers, specifically the East Bay Area Chapter of Blue Star Moms. Flying Colors donated about 3000 comic books to Blue Star Moms as a way to provide some entertainment and fun to the soldiers. SPC Graulau sent us the following email:
My name is SPC Steven Graulau. I am currently deployed in COB Speicher, Iraq with the 47th Combat Support Hospital. We have recently started receiving comics from your store this month. I would like to tell you personally and on behalf of all the other soldiers I work with, thank you. We deeply appreciate this gesture and your generosity.
We couldn't imagine where to start telling you how much we enjoy the comics we receive on your store's behalf and how often we exchange comics (due to the short supply). I hope to one day personally exchange my salute with you at your store. Until then, take care and God bless.
47th CSH, COB Speicher IZ
At Flying Colors, we are honored to help give our soldiers a few minutes away from the rigors of their mission by providing comic books to them whenever the Blue Star Moms ask.
I want to personally thank every soldier for their service to our country and I hope and pray for their speedy and safe return to each of their many loved ones here at home.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you!
