Surprise mail

I had to pick up an envelope from the post office this afternoon - I was trying to guess what it was as I don't think I have been buying anything on line lately....could have but don't think so!! Lol!!

But this was what was in the envelope
a letter from the Commander Joint Task Force in the UAE....

 
and a coin he issues to highlight his personal gratitude to people who have made a contribution to him, his team or operation!  Wow!!! I am gobsmacked!!! How good is that!!!! I understand these are going to all the quilters who make quilts or laundry bags for the Australian Forces in the Middle East!  Wow!! I am lost for words!!
I had better head off and get the laundry bags sewn up now!!
WOW!!!
