I was stationed in Iraq (Camp Bucca P.O.W. Camp) in 2003, and I took a friend with me for my son Justinís class project. I donít think the teacher knew that Stanley was going to war, but he pulled through the whole experience very well.  When I sent the picture back to Garrett Elementary School in Spring of 2003, my son went all over the school showing the teachers just how far Stanley had made it.

I thank you for the chance to not only to make my sonís class smile, but to help me forget about the atmosphere that I was in. I had fun getting Stanley Thank you and God Bless!
