‘It was such a wonderful time. I have two daughters and their dad just deployed 2 weeks before we attended this event and it made my girls so happy. My 3-year-old was convinced that her dad sent Mickey Mouse to meet her! And she loved that Mickey was with the American flag, it really brought her Army life & her everyday kid life together. Thank you so much for everything and taking our minds off missing our favorite soldier.’
