    I know that alot of you guys are doing comp. lawn services for for persons stationed abroad for the war efforts. I only had one lawn that I have been doing since the war started and he has just recently returned. This gentleman was stationed at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar. In a card and package sent to me by he and his wife stated....

    "Thank you so much for taking care of our lawn while I was deployed. It meant so much to me to know there was one less thing for my wife to worry about. I had this flag flown on the first day of the war. After some thought on what I would do with it, I realized it would be fitting to give it to someone who helped my wife and I out so much when I was gone."

    In the package was an American flag, neatly folded, with a certificate stating that the flag was flown in an F-16CJ on the first day of the war while patrolling the hostile skies of Iraq. It was also signed by the pilot.

    Hope your experiences with your freebies has as good an outcome as mine.
