Our son, Cpl. Dan Rebich is with the 3rd Battalion of the 5th Regiment of the 1st Marine Division headed north toward the Kuwait-Iraq border. He is a 1999 graduate of Lakota East High School and has been in the marines for 4 years. He had been stationed at Camp Pendleton, Ca. and was deployed to Kuwait the first week of February. We received our first letter from him on March 15. (The letter was dated February 12.) Last week we received 2 postcards from him. They were actually written on the back of a 'macaroni and cheese' package - apparently the only writing paper he had. One of the post cards was dated March 5. He seemed to be in good spirits, saying that he only gets to shower about once a week and has been working 12 hour days. He did say that he had been having a few hot meals, and he would welcome any 'snacks' I wanted to send. We are very proud of our son - and all of the military men and women serving our country. God bless America!
