Never underestimate the value of a little dirt.



One of the peas posted this photo along with this note:

Here is a soldier stationed in Iraq, living in a big sand box. He asked his wife to send him some dirt (U.S. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so he could have the sweet aroma and feel of grass growing beneath his feet. Not only that...when the men of his squadron leave on a mission, they take turns walking through his grass and on the American soil - to bring them good luck.
