"Thank you..... TREATS FOR TROOPS
    On Friday April 29, 2016 the 5th Graders at Davenport Elementary were greeted by two very special guests; Senior Airman Randolph Sullivan and Senior Airman Ochirtbilguun Caldwell who are stationed at Fairchild Air Force Base.  These two brave men came to say "Thank You" to the students for sending them letters while they were deployed to Al Udeid Air Base last winter. 
    They received the letters in a Treats for Troops package. Student Cami Heidegger’s letter was very helpful to Airman Sullivan who stated “It is great to get these letters. Keep them coming, to all of the troops. Don’t forget to sign your letters and give a place that we can find you to say thanks in person. Thanks Cami!” 
    Davenport Elementary received a flag that was carried aboard an E-8C JSTARS aircraft during a combat sortie over Iraq and Afghanistan on 18 December 2015 and 19 December 2015. This mission provided radar and attack support to multinational forces.
    "Thank you Senior Airman Sullivan and Senior Airman Cladwell for your service to our country."
