This is what he sent over this evening...
in front of his tent. It's heartwarming!
Here is a United States soldier in Iraq , stationed in a big sand box.
It's Warrant Officer Brook Turner; he's stationed at Camp Cooke north of Baghdad.
Warrant Officer Turner asked his wife to send him dirt ( U.S. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he can have the sweet aroma, and feel the grass grow beneath his feet. If you notice, he is even cutting the grass with a pair of a scissors!
When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the American soil -- to bring them good luck.
Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we don't stop and think about the little things that we take for granted. Upon receiving this, say a little prayer for our soldiers that give and give (and give up) so unselfishly for us.
