Debra Burlingame has a message for our troops serving at Guantanamo Naval Base:
“Operation Valentine: A Salute to Gitmo Heroes” is a special effort to support our men and women in uniform at Gitmo, the war on terror’s most difficult duty.
There is widespread misunderstanding of the mission and the burden that belongs to the men and women working at Gitmo and its importance to the security of our nation. In addition, because the men and women who are on duty there are under tremendous security risk from terrorist attacks, they receive nothing in the way of cards and gifts, while the interned receive plenty, including words of encouragement and gifts.
If you want to send Valentines to Troops in Gitmo, please mail them to this address as he will distribute your cards:
CAPT Peter Husta, GTMO APO AE 09360
