Deploys With Daddy

Our Daddy is getting ready to deploy with the US Air Force. We are going to miss him SO much! But we’re excited, because our flat friend is going with. We can’t wait to see pictures of them.
Deployment Day

It was a beautiful night to fly.

UN Peacekeepers

Greetings from a fan of Flat Stanley

I was introduced to Flat Stanley in 1999 while serving with the United Nations International Police Task Force in Bosnia. My family was visiting me during the Christmas holiday and my twelve year old son introduced me to Flat Stanley. From there Stanley became a part of my family after my family returned home. In fact, he was adopted by my international staff and the adventure begun.

First, we officially made him an honorary International Police Task Force officer, pinning a badge and donning a blue peacekeeping beret on him. Once receiving the honors bestowed on him, he traveled with me and my staff of peacekeepers all over the world. He went proudly wearing the beret and badge to exotic places like: Nepal, India, Egypt, Greece, Kenya, Iceland and many other places.

Along the way he met ambassadors, police officers and families of my staff. Everywhere he went he was loved and we took lots of digital pictures.

After he returned back to Bosnia from each his adventures, I would send an email to my son’s teacher and class, a little story of his trip. I would include a little about the culture, the people he met and, of course, the pictures.

Mrs. Kasson, my son’s teacher, invited me and Flat Stanley to her class before the school year was out. There, I returned Flat Stanley and showed a Power Point presentation of all of his travels as a good will ambassador.

In closing, my youngest son is now in 6th grade and I’m about to depart on another International Peacekeeping Mission, to Iraq. I hope that my son’s school adopts the Flat Stanley project so I can use him, as I did in Bosnia, as an ambassador of goodwill and peace.

Very truly yours,

Hi Dale,

Here are a few more of FS with some peacekeepers in other countries.

I have way too many pictures with Flat to share now.  He was a great travel companion for me and friends.  I alone, traveled to Greece, Germany, The Netherlands, Egypt, Israel and Croatia with him.  With my mission to Iraq, I hope to perhaps get schools there involved with Flat Stanley in an exchange with American children.  I firmly believe that once educated to the cultural diversities and respecting those differences, people won’t be as quick to hate one another.  The best way to do that is follow the laws of primacy with children “Those things first taught are most remembered”, Flat Stanley is a great ice breaker to help others (especially children) to know us better.

Habur Gate

Habur Gate Iraq


I have to thank Flat Stanley for coming to Habur Gate Iraq this past year to visit.
He was sent by Ms. Pam's 2nd grade class from Bay St Louis MS.
He made our time up on the northern border of Iraq more bearable.
While he was there he met some very interesting folks and had some interesting food.
He even got to wear a uniform. We had such a great time having Stanley visit us.
My adventure to Iraq by Flat Stanley.

I started out from Ms. Richardson’s classroom in Bay Saint Louis MS. The students there sent me off the first time to meet a guy who was working in Iraq way up by a place called Turkey. Boy was I nervous, all I knew about Iraq was what we heard on the news and what I heard from grownups saying. Anyway the boys and girls of Ms. Richardson’s class put me in this big envelope and mailed me off to meet Frank. I traveled across the ocean to Europe then on to the middle East. I stopped in mail rooms in Iraq in Baghdad and Mosul then finally in Habur Gate where Frank was. Well guess what happen? I got lost. Don’t ask me how but I ended up sitting in a mail room somewhere for about 2 weeks. Then I saw this other great big envelope go by from Mississippi on its way to Frank. Well a few days later ended up in the right bin and was delivered along with my copy to Frank.


When I first met Frank he was so excited to see me. He was jumping up and down and ran all over the place showing me to his friends. I didn’t really get to meet anyone else that day except his partner Al. Oh I forgot to tell you Frank and Al work for CBP they are like policemen.


My first night Frank and Al showed me some of the equipment they used and had to wear. Boy is that stuff big and heavy. They showed me the bullet proof vest they had to wear and the guns they had to carry and the bags they filled with water that they put on their backs. And some of it is scary too. But they made me feel relaxed when they explained what things were for and how to use them.



First they showed me the computer they used to send reports to their boss and to talk to people back home. Shhhhh it was a secret computer, I still don’t understand that part because it was sitting right there on the table.


The next day is when I started to meet all of these real brave and nice men and woman. The first person I met was Sgt. Brissette, but we called him Mike. He was so cool, he liked to read comic books old ones and had a real big collection of them. He kept them all in plastic so they would not get dirty. Mike is the one that made me my uniform. I had to have a uniform so I fit in with all the other people there. Plus I lost all my other clothes.


Next I met an Army cook named Tony. He was a real nice guy,and friends with Frank. He made sure me Frank and Al got enough to eat. I met most of the other soldiers there.


After meeting the soldiers Frank Al and me went out and walked around well actually we got to ride in this thing they called a Gator. It didn’t have any teeth it was like this cool motor cart.


Good thing we got to ride in it because it sure was hot there and I think I may have melted or something if we had to walk all that way. We went from one end of the place to the other. And we took pictures along the way. There where these guys dressed in uniforms they were in the Iraqi Army. Their job was to guard the bridge in Habur Gate. At first they seemed mean but when Frank and Al introduced me to them they were very friendly and took pictures with me.


One of them even knew who I was because he has a little girl in the third grade. For the next few days we drove and walked around Habur Gate and met all kinds of people. I met Truck drivers from Turkey and Iraq. I met Iraqi Policemen. I met shop keepers and lots of children. They all were very nice and loved having their picture taken with me. One day while we were in a city called Zahko I fell out of Frank’s pocket and broke my leg. Frank and Al were so upset. I was OK it didn’t really hurt too bad, but this shop keeper helped me out he gave me some tape and a piece of candy and I was all fixed up.




During my trip to Iraq I met so many different people from so many different places. I ate all kinds of food. Not just the food the Army fed us but from some restaurants too. Frank said how do you know if you do not like it unless you try it. He was right.



During my stay in Harbur Gate I did send emails back to Ms. Richardson’s class and pictures. When it was time for me to return to Bay Saint Louis MS Frank and Al and Tony and Mike brought me to the mail room and handed me over to the mail clerk. They made sure I was addressed correctly and comfortable in a big envelope.


I had so much fun and it was very exciting visiting Iraq. I know it is dangerous there and the men and woman I met are very brave. Thank you to them.


Your friend Flat Stanley.

By the end of the day, Stanley was so tired, SGT Chester had to carry him in his pocket back to his envelope where he slept.  He’ll be going back to the states to get ready for his next adventure.

Al fin del dia, Stanley esta mucho cansado, tuvimos a llevar apoye a el sobre.  El estara yendo a estados unidos a preparar por el proximo adventura.

In Iraq with Captain Waite and Randy Wolfert

Hello,
My son Anthony Dalida, Jr. (1st grader at Oak Hill Elementary, Severna Park) sent his Flat Stanley to his uncle in Redwood City, California.  Since then his Flat Stanley has been to Los Angeles and Seattle.
In February, his uncle, Randy Wolfert, got his reserve unit activated and was sent to Iraq in late May.  Much to our surprise, he took Flat Stanley with him and he just emailed us pictures!!
My son was so happy to see his Flat Stanley in Iraq with Iraqi children and U.S. soldiers.  It was a great way to expose the recent events to my kids on a lighter note!
I hope you enjoy them!!
Ann Dalida
Flat Stanley’s friend Flat Jenna made some travels of her own, to Baghdad, Iraq recently with the US Air Force.  She made it back safely to continue her travels.
Here’s another Flat Stanley note from Iraq.  It began,
A Flat Stanley was sent to my son in Iraq.  I thought you might be touched by his adventures there:
Dear Dora,
Stanley arrived in the mail the other day and boy, were we surprised to see him. All my soldiers and I could not figure out what the strange muffled noises were that were coming out of this large unmarked envelope. We thought some soldiers in another unit were playing a joke on us. We opened up the letter and out popped Stanley.

He would have gotten into a lot of trouble if our commander had seen him so we had to hide him quickly. We ended up hiding him in the back of a truck, not realizing that it was heading out on a mission a few minutes later. I was just able to jump in the truck before we went out the gate so that Stanley would not be alone and scared. He was not very scared, which is surprising as we were driving all over Iraq and it can be a very dangerous place.

Our mission today, however, was a good one. With the rebuilding of the Iraqi countryside, our unit has been sponsoring a small school, and we were going out to help fix up the building and deliver books and supplies to the kids. They are usually a little scared when soldiers show up, but all the little kids were fascinated by the fact that Stanley was flat. They all came up to talk to him, and he told them of some of his adventures.

Later that morning the wind came up and Stanley was in danger of blowing away, so some of the Iraqi schoolchildren tied him up with twine to try and keep him from flying away. He still took off though, and the kids had fun for about two hours flying him like a kite. He seemed to have fun as well because he was able to see a lot of the countryside.

At the end of the day we had to head back to base camp, because bad things tend to happen at night. All the soldiers knew that we would get in big trouble if someone found out we had taken a kid with us on mission, so we had to find a way to send him back to the United States. Our mail is really slow, so we tried to get him on a military jet out of Iraq. The pilots wouldn’t take him because he was flat and they were afraid that he would accidentally slide out of the cockpit and float away. My soldiers took- him to the motor pool and hooked him up to the air compressor that we use to inflate tires, but unluckily for him it had been broken earlier in the day by a mortar attack. Stanley was really beginning to miss the US, so we packed him up in a bubblewrap envelope with a few MRE’s (Meal Ready to Eat), which is the food that we eat here, and sent him on his way. I hope that he figures out how to fill back out again, because I would sure not be happy if I had to live life in fear of high winds blowing me away -from my family. It was nice to have him around though.
Stanley had a great time though and is safely heading back home,

US Army Major Rich Spiegel Travels with Flat Stanley

March 2004
FLAT STANLEY TO DEPLOY
FORT HOOD, TEXAS – – A famous children’s literature character will deploy to Iraq from here Sunday.

Flat Stanley, belonging to Meghan Sheasley of Far Hills, New Jersey will spend approximately one-year, in Iraq, with Meghan’s uncle, U.S. Army Major Richard Spiegel.

Flat Stanley plans to provide periodic updates on life with coalition servicemen and servicewomen in Iraq. Stanley will also report on the Iraqi people as time and security permit.

Spiegel is the Director of Public Affairs for the Army’s 13th Corps Support Command, located here.

This particular Stanley previously traveled with Spiegel to Alaska and Canada. Spiegel took previous Stanleys throughout Europe and the Far East.

Dear All;

I arrived in Kuwait today after a long journey from El Paso, Texas. The trip is supposed to be 15 hours long but we stopped in Maine and Germany to refuel and refit the airplane.

Our camp in Kuwait is helping my escort get his pay and allowances changed over to combat zone pay and issuing him some special bullet-proof plates for his “Body Armor”. We also received bullets today, yes my escort will carry a gun because there are still a lot of bad people in Iraq that selfishly do not want the positive changes being made by the international coalition.

Tomorrow we hope to fly into Iraq and get settled in our permanent camp. Sorry I don’t have a picture today but we don’t have a digital camera until we get to Major Spiegel’s office.

I will be happy to answer your questions starting in a week or so when I can borrow his computer.

March 13

Hello from Iraq;


I arrived a couple of days ago and have been busy getting settled, in the next few days I hope to get some pictures of our camp and describe the conditions that we are living in.

Today I had the opportunity to go with some doctors, nurses, dentists and other medical professionals and watch them set up a clinic, for two hours, in a small village where many people don’t get good medical care.

I learned that many of the simple medicines or treatments we receive without thinking about are not available to the people here. Sometimes something as simple as aspirin or penicillin can cure a problem, in a few days, that has caused someone to live in discomfort their whole life.

Medical programs like this are a regular part of the Coalition Forces Mission in Iraq.

I have attached a picture of a US Army dentist working on a young Iraqi girl. Unfortunately since it was a medical procedure I could not be in the picture myself

Sincerely

I’m sorry it takes me so long to write but the Army folks here are very busy and I spend alot of time in someone’s pocket. I am travelling with the public affairs office whose job is to tell the Army story to the newspapers and TV stations. We also help out news reporters who are here to interview people and we have our own newspaper as well.

Here I am shown with Specialist Eric Rodriguez of California. He is an Army journalist and he specializes in video production. He has done some wonderful slide shows and in this picture is working on one in the office.


The other picture is of my room. I need to get out more and as soon as my office gets another smaller camera I think you will see more of me.

March 25, 2004

Hello again everyone

we have been really busy this week escorting TV stations and newspaper reporters who are interested in finding out what is going on here in Iraq.

What’s really interesting here is that I have met people from nearly every state in the US and from several countries as well. Many of them know me because they have kids or they read about me when they were little. Although we are far away from home it can be a very small world, just the other day MAJ Spiegel (whose pocket I stay in much of the time) ran into another Major that he went to elementary school with – wow!



If you are interested in me trying to find soldiers from your state, let me know and I’ll go out looking when we have time.

Today I’m attaching a picture of our truck, next week I’m going to get to the Tigris River and I may be able to show you Baghdad soon.

See You Again Soon

March 28, 2004

Dear Friends;

Today I am with a construction crew from Pampanga, Philippines. They are working for a company that is improving the base where I live, someday this will go back to the Iraqi people much better then when my friends found it.

The Pilipino men come to work for a year or sometimes two because the pay is better than at home and they can provide more for their families.

The work ongoing here to help the Iraqi people is a cooperative effort of many nations. Here at our camp, the Military works together with government civilians, private companies and the Iraqi people to make Iraq a safe and secure place to live.

Next week they told me i may get to meet some Iraqi children and help bring them much needed school supplies.

April 3, 2004

Hello again everyone

Yesterday I had the opportunity to go to three of the many schools that my Army friends are helping to fix up. One had not been started yet and was in pretty bad shape, one was about halfway through and yet another was finished and will have its grand opening soon.

Not all of the children go to school, some sit in the fields while their mothers work. The ones that are in school have few if any school supplies and often must share books. They do not learn like you do, they learn with the selected student reading in front of the class and the rest of the class chanting in response.

During our visit we distributed school supplies and backpacks donated by Peperdine University as part of a students project to earn their masters degree. Each pack contained paper, a ruler, pencils and other school supplies, the packs also contained a toothbrush.

The schools are low brick or cement buildings with bare floors. The lighting is not good and desks are about all that is in the room. The bathrooms are outside and not very clean, there is little if any play equipment.

The finished school is bright and colorful and has running water from a tank up on the roof, there is a real bathroom like you and I know.

Most villages in our area have no running water, water for washing and even drinking is taken from the canal in buckets, its very dirty and would make you or me sick since we are not used to it.

The children were very excited and happy to see us, they are very friendly and curious often trying out the few English words they know and trying to convince us to give them candy, we always do. The children are very happy to be back in school and I was happy to visit them.

I’ll see more in the coming days

Hello Again everyone;

I’m sorry I haven’t written in so long but my Army friends have been very busy. The people that have been fighting against them have been very active and its been a little to dangerous for us to go out very much.

Today I helped host a TV crew from Russia TV 1 based in Moscow. They are the biggest TV network in Russia and with sattelites they broadcast all over the world. If you have a sattelite TV system in your house you may be able to watch them.

They came to Camp Anaconda to see how the American soldiers live; unfortunately, Russian soldiers don’t live very well and they wanted to compare.

We took them to see soldiers living in tents, buildings and trailers, they were very impressed, almost everyone has air conditioning and they are allowed to fix their area up to be comfortable.

We also took them to see the indoor pool and the new movie theater where they show the same new movies that you can see back at home. They also went to see all the Army trucks.

Anaconda is a supply base and from here truck convoys drive daily all over Iraq, it is very dangerous work and many soldiers that I know have gotten hurt. Their jib is important, they deliver food, fresh water, gasoline bullets and spare parts so that soldiers from all the countries working here can do their job and help make Iraq a safer and more secure place.

I also just found out that I might get to go to Baghdad with Major Spiegel soon, I’m very exited to meet some new people and to see some new places. For now I hope you enjoy this picture of me, Nickolai, Andre and Michael.

I’ll write again soon

Dear Friends,

I’m back and I’ve been to Baghdad, the capital city of Iraq. I flew on a Blackhawk helicopter, what an awesome ride, very fast and very low, much better than any rollercoaster but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t dangerous, the soldiers are always alert for people that might want to harm them.

We passed over a lot of little villages, the homes or huts are made of mud and people that have some money make their homes of cement and brick. We also flew over alot of cows, goats and sheep, alot of the people between my base and Baghdad are farmers. Lamb and goat are very popular for eating here.

Baghdad is huge and there is a lot of traffic except in the Green Zone where the people helping the Iraqis form a new government live. The green zone is heavily protected to keep the people that want to keep Iraq from making progress out. I got to see the Presidential Palace, very big and beautiful but lets say the decorating was not to my liking. There are also many broken down buildings, some because Saddam Hussein neglected his people and some because we had to bomb them to help get rid of him. I also got to see some famous monuments and eat lunch in the Al-Rasheed hotel, that was on the news a lot.

Baghdad is a very dangerous city and at night I could here the sounds of fighting, I was happy to fly back to our temporary home in Balad.

While in Baghdad I got a tour of Freedom Radio. Freedom Radio is run by the US Army and broadcasts for all the people working in the country, some Iraqis even listen to it. I’m sending a picture of me as the DJ, broadcasting all over Iraq.

I’ll see you again soon.

Dear everyone;

Its been so exciting lately, I’ve been out to the villages with my soldiers as they inspect the progress of all the schools they are fixing up. Soon i am going with a medical team to help the villagers near to here get better medical care, some never get to a doctor.

I’m just attaching another picture from my Baghdad trip, here I’m sitting in a couch in the Presidential Palace.



Talk to you soon

June 23, 2004

Dear Everyone;

I’m sorry its been so long since I wrote about my trip to Baghdad, my Army friends have been very busy as usual.This week they took me on a MEDCAP or medical civil action program. Doctors, Dentists and other medical people from my base volunteered to go out into one of the very poor villages and provide medical care for the people, many of whom rarely if ever see a doctor. The doctors use medical supplies donated by various groups and organizations to treat the villagers many of whom are very sick.

The people in most villages don’t have clean drinking water so there are some bad diseases that we no longer have in the United States. A lot of the children are sick with simple things like ear infections that your doctor can cure in a day or two but not here because there is very little medicine available.

Army doctors saw over 170 patients and dentists even pulled six teeth relieving a lifetime of pain in some patients. The dental staff also cleaned teeth, passed out dental care supplies and gave instructions on how to brush properly.

The village is very friendly and were happy to see the medical soldiers, as usual there were hundreds of kids around.



I’ve attached a picture of me with a family, the little boy is protecting his goodies for the day. I’m sorry about the cigarette but many of the men here smoke. Iraq is still a very dangerous place and that is why MAJ Spiegel is carrying a rifle.

I’ll write again soon

Flat Stanley Redeploys

Hi Friends,

Flat Stanley here, so sorry its been months since I wrote but my Army friends just haven’t had the time to take me sightseeing. Its been very difficult for them at times and often dangerous. I am glad I came over here though to see all the things they are doing to help the Iraqi people, especially the children.

MAJ Spiegel is sending me back home to his niece Meghan so that I can be put in a memory box and preserved (I’ve been damaged just a little) – a new FS will take my place, maybe on Maj. Spiegel’s next Army adventure.

I’ve enjoyed writing to you
