Possibly my favorite Christmas gift...

...is this email I received from overseas:

As a soldier stationed in Afghanistan I just wanted to take the time to say thank you to the Flying Colors Comics staff.
A care package arrived at our base and to my surprise there were comics in it. I grabbed a few and handed them over to other service members who did the same. It is rare to get this form of entertainment out here so everyone was pleased to get them.
Back in the States I am a very big collector so the comics in the care package are a nice taste of home. Thank you very much for thinking of us and putting forth the effort. Support from home makes our job a little bit easier.

For the last several years, Flying Colors Comics has been honored to work with Blue Star Moms, Contra Costa Chapter of San Ramon. 

Through the volunteer work of Moms and families with sons, daughters and other family members in the various branches of military service, Flying Colors is able to get comics entertainment sent out a couple of times a year, included in the Blue Star Moms care packages.

Thank you, SPC Cordova, for taking the time to email us with your thanks for the comics. The truth is, the comics are the small way we thank you for your service, hoping that we can bring a little bit of home-style fun to you during your tour.

Thank YOU for your service!

Peace!
