In humanitarian news, American members of the service provide school supplies and sports balls for Iraqi children. Service members from the Kirkuk Regional Air Base are distributing paper, pencils, and other such items in a number of provinces throughout the area. Called Operation School Supplies, the initiative is made possible by donations from sponsors in the United States who send contributions to the base. In addition, through a linked Operation, children are also delighted to receive soccer balls. Our earnest appreciation, Operation School Supplies, Operation Soccer Ball, and all Kirkuk Regional Air Base personnel involved, for your dedicated efforts. May the vibrant youngsters of Iraq flourish under Allah’s beneficent protection.
