SMSgt Hughes in Afghanistan about 9 years ago SMSgt Hughes in Afghanistan

Hey Cosby Elementary School Staff and Students, During Christmas ’07 your school sent a number of letters/cards to the troops down range. Well, at my location they always hang all the cards/letters on the Wall of Inspiration so we can see all the folks who care about us when we are a little down. We are in the process of taking down all the stuff from last year to prepare the wall for this year, when I noticed some e-mail and mailing addresses on the items. I asked if anyone had responded to the individuals and no one knew. So I wanted to take just a few moments to let you know your letters/cards did make it here and were really appreciated. My name is SMSgt Robert M. Hughes and while I was born in Nebraska, I really claim The Great State of Tennessee as my home because that is where I grew-up and went to school. I'm actually a member of the United States Air Force and have been in service to our country for 20 years. While I've served in places such as Iraq, Somalia, Kuwait, Germany, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Spain, my current deployment finds my boots on the ground here in Afghanistan. My primary mission here is to train the Afgan Army to conduct their own operations. I go out on convoy with them, spend my days in their work areas and try to instill a sense of pride in the job they are performing. It is one heck of a challenge, but for the most part people are people and given the chance and proper training will do and actually want to do what is right. I’m on a one year tour here and will be here until at least next summer. Upon my return to Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri (home of the B2 Stealth Bomber) I will change stations and be assigned to Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany. Again, thanks for your support. May God bless you all, your families and America. Thanks SMSgt Robert M. Hughes 2nd BDE ETT 201st Corps FOB Hughie/JAF APO AE 09310
