Wow, I feel awed to join up on Team Gratitude for Round 12 of Operation Baking Gals! Captain Joel Heffernan felt that his job with the United States Secret Service in Chicago was not challenging enough so he took a leave from that to redeploy with the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit in Afghanistan.
I’m speechless and really, that just sums up the reasons I do this. A person gave up his relatively safe stateside job (albeit with the Secret Service) to go tramp around the mountains of Afghanistan to help break the Taliban. That is some serious dedication to America and democracy.
If you have the time and inclination, please visit Operation Baking GALS to join a team for Round 12. Shipping dates are September 1-12.
Give a Little Support. Bake!
