Giving our troops the opportunity to escape into a good book since 1999.

"Hi Francis and Sandy R, I want to thank you so much for all the books. My bookshelves were almost full. I thought I was going to have to get another cabinet. There have been many more soldiers and marines using the Internet Caf this month. The books have gone down some with the increased activity. The Internet Caf was just open from 0700-1600 until last week we extended the hours to 2200. I have several bookshelves and an area where they can lounge and make coffee or make popcorn. COL Keith still will not let me have a TV for them. I am still working on that. The Internet Caf is in an old mess hall. They blocked off the kitchen area. I hope to get the rest of the building soon. SFC Jatko said that he was trying to get them to take out the kitchen equipment so I can start some of the activities that I wanted to. I will be able to set up an area where the service member can read a book to a loved one. With the help of the USO I will be able to record it on a DVD for them. The USO has a United Through Reading program. They will supply the DVDs. I will not be able to mail the DVDs like the USO does. I also wanted to set up an area where they can play guitars. The variety of books you sent was great. I just had one person ask for westerns. I do not have many of them. "
