Let's talk a little about how this program works -- it's hard enough for a guy like me to go to -- and her Mother's Day.
In a city like this I can imagine how difficult that is if you're deployed in a place like Afghanistan not a lot of forced shops and -- you wanted to set a couple poppies -- Now a lot of shopping opportunities.

A chance to touch -- -- it's an easy nothing to do I suppose if you're talking about 11 failure to families but you guys have expanded isn't how many people involved enough.
This Mother's Day we sent out 2000 boxes.
And a total of 6000 over fighters and expectations of increasing.
Tell us how it works -- how how people get involved.
What we do is we take -- requests from those -- are deployed in hand we.
Set up boxes for -- Mother's Day are Christmas and we send it to the woman home that supporting them.
And to us apart at the box of course is that in the box is a handwritten note from the soldier to his mom or his -- spouse.
And the minute the minute that -- comes out of the box these women tennis.
I imagine that you got to you got one of the -- we do have a -- you and you bring up on the table here and I take a look at that probably -- -- hold it up like this will be a nice tight shot but.

And just how how much it -- mean because -- women.
Really hold -- family together they work so hard and they just sort of don't don't take characters in south but also think that people don't remember and and.
You know it's so tough by I have an older so my oldest son is a stationed overseas in the navy and and he tells me how he often -- with his wife and his and his little toddler son.
