I keep wondering if my package has arrived yet in Iraq as part of Operation Desert Swap.
In case you haven’t heard of it, authors all across the country have donated a copy of their book and “adopted” one of the 83 soldiers in Company C 3/25 Aviation Regiment, a medivac unit also known as “dust off.”
My historical fiction novel Shades of Gray was shipped on Oct. 23 – and I also included some Halloween treats in the box to my soldier. (No one should have to miss Candy Corn season).
As part of the ODS project each soldier is asked to swap their book with another soldier when they have finished reading it, and then that soldier swaps it off with another and so on.
I am so honored to be a part of this project and wish all of the soldiers of Company C a safe deployment and quick return home!
Very cool. I haven’t heard about this!
