I AM serving in Afghanistan and just recently received a care package from a 21- year-old Tamworth resident named Stevie-Lee Sutherland.
Unfortunately Mr Sutherland left no return address so I am unable to write to him directly, but I hope you can somehow pass this message to the kind residents of Tamworth that take the time to send these packages.
Firstly, the package was excellent! There was a great selection of goods contained within and the well wishes on the postcard were well received.
Secondly, the fact that Mr Sutherland took the time out of his day to send such a package makes me feel proud to be a member of the Australian Army.
Please, if you can, pass a very big thank you onto Stevie-Lee Sutherland for me. His thoughtful package has made my time in Afghanistan more pleasant and I really appreciate the effort.
