I am writing to alert you that my daughters CPT Heather McColl Morgan and 1LT Amber McColl are both deployed / deploying to Afghanistan for nine months. Heather is the Battalion Intelligence Officer for a Stryker armored / mechanized infantry battalion. Amber is part of the brigade headquarters to which Heather's unit belongs.
Please share with the Base and ask them to support as they see fit with good thoughts and prayers for their safety, wisdom and determination to do their jobs well. I've attached a photo. Amber on the left / Heather on the right.
Both were previous awardees of Willie Spoon Memorial Scholarships, and I wanted the Base to know that their confidence in Heather and Amber in awarding them the scholarships is being returned to the nation in a big way.
