Mother’s Day Across the Miles

The good folks at Baghdad USO have forged a great relationship with Operation Write Home, a volunteer organization that has approximately 2,500 talented crafters across the USA making unique greeting cards for the service members at Sather Air Base in Baghdad.  OWH supplies cards for every occasion, whether Birthday, Anniversary, Miss You – or holidays including Easter, Mother’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day.  Sather AB has received over 600 Valentine’s Day cards and every single one was used!  They were also very fortunate to have one of their volunteers, who happens to be a master woodworker, make a beautiful card rack to display the cards in the reception area.

To commemorate Mother’s Day, Operation Write Home asked Baghdad USO to take pictures of our wonderful troops for their website.  They hope to ensure that all Mothers will receive a card from their service members who are passing through Sather AB.  USO Baghdad recently provided photos that are included in Operation Write Home’s video tribute to Moms everywhere, shown below.

Happy (early) Mother’s Day…we hope you enjoy!

  1. THANKS to the USO once again for coming through for our troops and families. God bless the USO and ALL of our brave military. This Army mom loves and cherishes each one of you.

  2. The video was fantastic. They only thing that could have made it better was if my son could have been in it. He is stationed in Iraq and was in Balad. He is not in Tikrit and I would love to see him. Thanks so much.

  3. This is so precious… thank you thank you for sharing it with all of us with children in the armed forces. We love you our children, our heroes, our hope.
