ISS Ships Freezy-Pops to Troops in Iraq

U.S. troops in Iraq must deal with the constant threat of attack, separation for families and loved ones... and unrelenting, oppressive heat. Temperatures in Iraq regularly exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit. To support our troops, ISS recently shipped 1,000 freezy-pops to Iraq. In response, Wayne DeAtley received the following email of thanks:

Subject: Freezy Pops

Mr. DeAtley,

I would like to thank you and ISS for the generosity expressed in helping to ship 1,000 freezy pops to our troops in Iraq.

My friend, Ch. Capt. Charles Seligman, a chaplain from Langley AFB, is currently serving in country at Balad AFB. He had mentioned how he would like to be able to go out to the troops, both at Balad and other out-lying areas, with a cooler full of something as simple as Freezy Pops. He wanted to be able to give just a simple expression to those as they worked in the +120 degree heat.

Attached are some of pictures from the front.

Thank you again for your generosity.

Respectfully,
Mark Kruse

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
