Last June, “06880” asked readers to send supplies to Calvin Wauchope. The 21-year-old sergeant needed baby wipes, dried fruit, toiletries and the like for his 40-man unit in Afghanistan.
Westport responded wonderfully.
This morning Calvin’s mother Katherine passed along some great news. Calvin’s email to her said:
To give you an update, I am starting to make move back home! I left my base and am at a bigger base for about 5-7 days, then one other base for about 48 hrs and then I will be out of Afghanistan and in Kyrgyzstan for however long it takes to do customs and get a flight, should not be more than 4 days.
Looks like we will be home by the 2nd or so! I got an awesome shower and great food. Eating real food now and have just been going to the gym and watching movies. I sleep at night and the internet is a mess here had to wait like 45 min to get on but Ill call on sunday I guess maybe before.
Love Ya, Cal
Good things happen to good people. Welcome home, Cal — and thanks for all you have done, for all of us.
