To the Family and Friends of H&S Company,
Greetings from sunny Iraq!! Thus far our deployment has gone well. We arrived without incident and received a solid turnover from the outgoing battalion. Your sons and husbands are currently all over the battalion’s area of responsibility, living in Palaces, trailers, and old Iraqi mansions. It’s not home, but we have made the best of it.
I have heard many Marines mention the extraordinary support they are receiving from those back in the States. Whether in the form of letters, e-mails, or care packages; all of your correspondence has been greatly appreciated. I ask that all of you be patient with the slow replies you receive, many of the Marines do not have access to the internet or an outgoing mailbox on a daily basis. However; keep sending the mail!! Your support and well wishes keep us motivated and are a constant reminder of why we are here.
Your Marines are working hard and already making a difference here in Iraq. Their work load is immense, but they are tireless. They are making the area we are in a safer place for Marines and Iraqi alike. I am incredibly proud of their effort and immediate impact. H&S Marines are living true to the words of President Ronald Reagan “People go through life wondering if they have made a difference, Marines don’t have that problem.” Thank you for your continued support and God Bless.
Capt Sean Dynan
