Earlier this week I received three boxes from the good folks at Regis Jesuit High School in Colorado. Inside were rather splendid, monogrammed velour blankets they had sent for my Soldiers here in Iraq.
I had just opened the first of the boxes when one of the Senior NCOs walked into my office. "Ooh, Sir! Can I have one of those?" After I gave him his choice, he then asked, "How about enough for the rest of my crew?"
The blankets are a great hit.
Thanks, Regis Jesuit! You folks truly are "men and women for others."
Blessings and peace to one and all,
Fr. Tim, SJ
