~Kristi HASN'T received ANY MAIL~Can YOU write to her?~


Oh, where do I start~!!!!! I just got a letter from my Kristi girl in Army Basic Training with the first line reading....Hey Mom, so, I haven't gotten any letters yet (with a BIG FROWNY FACE) but I'm keeping my HEAD UP (with an arrow pointing up) My battle buddy shares her mail with me.
TALK ABOUT RIPPING MY GUTS OUT HERE....I HAVE BEEN WRITING, I HAVE BEEN WRITING EVERY DAY.....I am so upset and crying and I can only imagine how my little girl feels right now, she's probably thinking everyone has abandoned her. I am so upset....so I am going to get to the bottom of this.If anyone would like to write, here is her address:
E1, O’NEILL, Kristine
A Co 2/60th INF REGT
BLDG 11000
2nd PLT REAPERS
FORT JACKSON, SC 29207
PS….Please be sure to write a big #2 on the BACK of the envelope
SHE IS AT THE TOP OF HER CLASS OF 58 GUYS and GIRLS!!!! I am SOOOO PROUD OF HER.... Bob is calling around and I have called the Red Cross to see if we can find out why she isn't getting her letters. The Chaplin seems to be the way to go....we have a message in to the Chaplin there at Fort Jackson and I know it might sound trivial to some of you, but when you are writing your child everyday and they are getting NO MAIL from ANYONE......something is wrong.
Hugs and Love and try to have a great weekend, I will, as soon as I get to the bottom of this....
Amy
(PS....as of Sunday October 19th, 2008, we found out Kristi got some of her mail....THANK YOU GOD!!!! Her spirits are UP and it has done wonders for her.....PLEASE KEEP WRITING!!!)

Oh, that's just awful. I can imagine how upset you must be.

As soon as you find out what happened, please let us know.

Whoohoo, TOP IN HER CLASS! You must be so proud of her.

Oh Amy! I can't imagine how you must feel. I'm sure Kristi is fine - She's such a strong gal but it breaks a moms heart to know that she wants to hear from home. Pray... she'll know. Ask God to be her family and to let her know that of course there must be problem with the mail. She'll know. ((hugs)) -Polly

Oh, you must be going NUTS! I wonder what's up with the mail? I hope they can get it figured out.

I'll be sure to get that girl of yours a card in the mail tomorrow!

Amy,

As you know my son Marc is in the Air Force. When he was in his second and third week of boot camp he literally called home in tears that he had recieved no mail and everyone else did. I cried for days, Iknow how important mail is from home. He never recieved four to five pieces of mail. He does get every box or letter now. But I will never forget the pain I heard in his voice. If only he could now get the proper medical treatment! He has been on X-ray two months and still has not begun his training. Six doctors and no results! Now he has such pains in his stomach from stress. We have no idea if they will release him, re-assign him a new job or what. Over three months of haging in the lurches and now wondering if he'll be home for the holidays or not. I cry everyday when I look at his graduation picture. He wanted this so bad and it has turned out horrible. Take care, love, Lori

Amy,
I'm sure the mail is slow right now because of the war and they are trying to screen everything that comes and goes within the base. I happen to live within ten minutes of Fort Jackson. I would be more than happy to take a care package to your baby for you. I can't imagine my child being away from home and feeling alone. Just say the word. My email address is ljones35@msn.com.
Blessings,
Lisa
