EMAIL FROM AFGANISTAN
heres a nice email I received the other day!
Jeff Tuggle here writing to thank you for the surfboard you provided 1st MSOB for our deployment to Afghanistan. You may not know, but we California Marines get ribbed allot from our fellow East Coast Marines about "surfing when we should be working" (jealousy). Instead of defending that, we figured we would embrace it and bring along something that reminds us all of where we'd rather be - surfing. Thanks to you, we have that reminder hanging up in our Combat Operations Center (COC) for all to see - to include all the VIPs that frequent us here in Herat, Afghanistan.
I've attached a couple of pictures of your surfboard sitting on two MRAPs and one with the SOTF 81 personnel with the Hindu Kush in the background. I'm willing to put some money down that this surfboard is the only one in all of Afghanistan...
Please let me know if you get this and again, thanks for the support. I look forward to meeting you and thanking you in person upon our return.
Cheers and Semper Fi,
LtCol J. D. Tuggle, USMC
1st Marine Special Operations Bn
Special Operations Task Force 81
GLAD TO DO MY PART -- GO GET EM BOYS!!!!!
