I am delighted to learn of your interest in Operation Interdependence, www.oidelivers.org . We are a non political organization of volunteers across the US shipping 70,000 quart baggies of treats and notes to the troops deployed in Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. I am going to forward an e-mail sent by Sue Abbott HBMS from a platoon commander in Kuwait, where the troops transition between the States, training there for a couple weeks before being sent to Afghanistan or Iraq, or preparing to take head home. It means the world to the troops to know that the US is "at their back". They often keep student letters in their helmets to remind them why they are there when the going gets tough. One of the LTHS football player's dad, special services in the Gulf War, bought seven footballs to send to a battalion (16 platoons of 50) on our OI list to receive our boxes every month.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
