With the 27th Engineering Bn medics in Afghanistan
The memory foam cushions (and the special foam you sent, Barbara) literally improve the success of their critical missions. They are able to stay more alert and focused on the mission at hand. I am in no way overstating the situation either. I usually work at the Aid Station on the base, but went out recently on a mission because they needed a female medic and I took one of the last cushions and it made a HUGE difference. Since we passed out the first few (from a few others who kindly sent them previously) we have no even had to go out and offer them to the guys because word has spread and before each mission we have at least a few people coming in asking for one. I mean, the snacks, cards, and other miscellaneous treats that we receive from Soldiers Angels and give to the guys are always appreciated, but the seat cushions are actually making a difference in their jobs and well-being.
