ACU Laundry detergent list.

Gabe, I didn't recognize you at first in this picture.  I've never seen you in your helmet before .  Dad asked me to forward this on to you so you know which detergent NOT to use (Contains Optical Brightners) and which ones you can use (Do Not Contain Brighteners).  I emailed the entire list, but just in a nutshell, these are the only ones that you should use on your ACU's:

Bold Powder
Cheer Liquid (all versions)
Cheer Powder (all versions)
All Powder (all versions)
Surf Powder (all versions)
Woolite (all versions)  

Now this is probably one of the coolest pictures I've seen of you.  You look good in green!  Anyhow, I got the package mailed out, but I didn't get the teflon stuff yet.  But thats okay because I DID get the weapons wipes but forgot to put them in the box that I sent today, so I'll be sending another one probably tomorrow.  I also had a card that I meant to put in the box but I found it on the table AFTER I had sealed the box with about 2 miles of duct tape.  Oh yeah, you'll probably need a chainsaw to open the box, but I wanted to make sure it didn't pop open in transit.

Take care son, miss you, love you!

Mom

Thanks for sharing the photos with us, Jodi.  Continuing to pray for Gabe and his comrades.  We have friends, Kay and Bruce who are married (second marriage for both).  Kay and Bruce's son's from first marriage are both in Iraq.  Please remember them in prayer too.  Also, my Hubby's first cousin's son, Allen.  He does the medi-vac helicopters.

Love and prayers for you too!

Boy that night vision stuff is so Ghost-Busterish! Spooky, but great for Halloween!

Gabe,
Hope you paid attention to your mom about those Brighteners that you can't use. And hopefully you're able to get the RIGHT detergent over there 'cause I bet you get really dirty out there in the dust. I'm so glad that the elections are over now,  and that the violence was at a minimum. Now hopefully, the Iraqis will continue to work towards becoming independent of you guys so you can get your adorable butt back home!

Stay safe! With love,
Maryanne
