I made this card for a Marine who served in Iraq and is currently at Camp Legeune, North Carolina recovering from surgery for wounds that he obtained while in Iraq...I wanted to send a heartfelt thanks to him for his sacrifices and for his dignity and most of all, for protecting the honor and freedoms, we as American's are lucky to have...his mother is "Cajun Lady" here on SCS...Bev...I hope that you like this and I really hope that your son knows that his part in this war is not without recognition...I may only be one person who is not in a place of duty or significance but I hope that I can make his day a little brighter with a card that says thanks for doing what you do. Thank you Bev...for raising an honorable man who fights for the freedoms that I too often take for granted.

Adorable card. So I'll say *Many tanks* to you Steph, for having the desire and taking the time to make such a wonderful card to express your gratitude, and to CPL Savoie and his mom, from one Cajun lady to another! (I'm from Lake Charles!) You expressed it so beautifully above!

Thank you Steph for taking the time to honor my son and to bring him some cheer. With all the negative news about the troops lately it makes my heart smile to know that people still do care and recognize that if it were not for the young men and women serving in the military that we would not have the freedoms that we take for granted everyday. I love the card and I know he will too....
