A 10-year-old boy's heartfelt, profanity-laced letter he included in a care package he sent to members of the military has gone viral.
Military wife Misty Allen-Brummett posted the letter from the child onto Facebook after she was sent a picture of it from her husband, who has been serving for 13 years. The letter reads:
Dear Troops, Thank you for your service. Me and my family are so thankful for you troops protecting us. Thank you for trying your hardest to protect our country. Good luck on killing those ISIS fucks.
Allen-Brummett told BuzzFeed News that she thought the letter was hilarious, so she decided to share it with her Facebook friends. It now has almost 2,000 shares.
"The crew loved the letter and did get a great laugh..." she said.
As the image began to circulate on Facebook, Allen-Brummett said she was contacted by the boy's mother herself. The mom told Allen-Brummett that her son had asked her if he could send the troops his Halloween candy and a letter.
So they got to work putting together a care package, with the candy and some toiletries.
But when the mom read her son's letter, she noticed he had used some ~colorful~ language.
"The mother at first was going to make him change the bad language but then decided that maybe the troops would get a good laugh and sent it with his candy and a letter from herself," Allen-Brummett said.
Allen-Brummett said she had no idea the image would go viral, and the whole thing has been totally crazy.
"I don't think I will ever share again, lol," she wrote.
