Barb Miller got an email from her son, Chris Miller, on Sunday the 22nd. She said he “sounded” really good.

He’s currently deployed with the 24th MEU, onboard the naval ship USS Iwo Jima.

They can’t disclose their location, but where they are right now it’s about 117 degrees during the day time. He said that it’s almost a full time job just to stay hydrated.

Anyone who would like to send him a letter or card can send it to:

Cpl Christopher G Miller

USS Iwo Jima

VMM 261 DET A Unit 77053

FPO AE 09502-7052

I’m sure he’d like to hear from people.

He’s due to return from this deployment in November.
