This gift was equally received with tears!

Dear All!  thank you for your kind gift!  My father was moved!!  He is a Air Force Veteran. He is a survivor of World War II. His plane went down in a freshly plowed field in Italy. He awoke in a Hospital with injuries. He is a recipient of The Purple Heart.   Yet this gift was equally received with tears!

Once thank you.

It is a wonderful blessing to receive such kind, heartfelt items from home

To whom it may concern [volunteers and supporters of operation gratitude]
My friend and I  [BU2 R  and CE2J] received multiple care packages from Mr. and Mrs. P. [from *****
I tried a few times to email them to say thank you for their generosity but received no response.
I would like to thank you and your group of patriotic Americans.  It is a wonderful blessing to receive such kind,  heartfelt items from home. On behalf of the 25 Seabees, we appreciate your thoughtfulness. All of you are in are hearts and thoughts.
Thank you and god bless

Knowing that there is someone out there who appreciates the things that I do truly makes my job a lot easier


                  From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for
the care package that you have sent. Knowing that there is someone out
there who  appreciates the things that I do truly makes my job a lot
easier.
I want to send a very special thank you to the “STUDENTS OF *****….
“JADYN”(WHO THINKS GEORGIA IS THE BEST PLACE TO LIVE) and to “STEPHANNE” (A FELLOW VETERAN”).  All these people took time to put a card in the box. Again, thank you and your group for doing an “OUTSTANDING” job.

Very Respectfully

Every little piece of that care package is precious

Dear Operation Gratitude,

My ship started receiving your packages a few weeks ago and they have
brightened many a sailor’s day. Some of us have not received a package
from home since the day we pulled out, so your care package has been the
first thing from home and much appreciated. It must be a tremendous job
addressing them personally to each sailor, but it has been very touching
for each one of us to receive our own individual packages. We read every
letter enclosed in the package and every comic strip inside. You have
put together much needed items for us in that package. My watches at all
hours of the day have become a little bit easier with 5-hour energy,
Vivarin and coffee pods. Every little piece of that care package is
precious. Thanks to every person involved in Operation Gratitude. Thank
you for thinking of us.

Very respectfully,
EM2 K

The letters from the school children brought a smile to my face

Operation Gratitude,

 

I am a sailor deployed aboard the USS *** and would like to say thank you for your kindness. The items in the gift packages are going to good  use and the letters from the school children brought a smile to my face. I unfortunately do not have any photos that say thank you but we are grateful.  It  is comforting to know we are thought of.

Sincerely,

R.E.S.

am extremely honored in doing what I do as a soldier and knowing that there are people who truly care about their service men and women

Operation Gratitude,

I cannot thank you enough for all the support and encouragement that you have provided for me and my fellow soldiers. I am extremely honored in doing what I do as a soldier and knowing that there are people who truly care about their service men and women. I know that without the support of everyone from back home that there are many people that would not be able to continually do their job day in and day out.

For many of my fellow soldiers that I am here with, it is their first time   being away from home and has been a learning experience. Luckily the threat level here is not as high as some places but it is still not like home. We are in Africa and are still getting used to the heat, being from the Midwest the temperatures are rather warm and muggy, with not much relief for the winter. We are fortunate to be able to communicate  home with our loved ones and the base has some things to offer to pass the time by.

Again, I cannot thank you enough for everything that you have done for us.

We really appreciate everything that YOU do for providing morale to us service members who are deployed

Dear Operation Gratitude,

Thank you so much for the care packages that you sent to our entire squadron while we are deployed.  The snacks and extra energy were very useful in helping us get through our long days while at-sea.  Also, the letters that were sent have made an impact on a lot of us and we have taken the time to reply to some of the people who   wrote to us.

Strike Fighter Squadron **** is one of the Navy’s permanently Forward Deployed Naval Force based at Naval Air Facility ***  and attached to *****); which is “the Navy’s 911 Air Wing” in the Pacific.  Our mission is to provide continuous Naval presence within the Pacific while providing offense and defense force in case of world disasters that take place in the Pacific.  We deploy twice a year (May – August and September – November) onboard the Navy’s only forward deployed aircraft carrier, *****. .

Again, we really appreciate everything that YOU do for providing morale to us service members who are deployed.

Sincerely, DXA

Just looking at the faces of my junior guys, I know it meant a lot to them

To Whom It May Concern:

Thank you so much for the great care packages. I want to personally thank you guys on the care packages my guys and I received. It meant so much to receive the goodies you sent us. Just looking at the faces of my junior guys, I know it meant a lot to them. We have been on deployment for 2 and a half months now;  this is only the second time we received mail. As soon as we saw the boxes we all started to work harder to get the mail on board.

Thank you once again!

Keep bringing smiles to Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Soldiers deployed

Operation Gratitude,

Thank you so much for the boxes you sent to the USS ****. After not receiving mail for over 30 days the boxes were welcoming, especially since the entire crew received a box. The music and DVD’s put the box over the top. Thanks a million!!!  Keep bringing smiles to Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Soldiers deployed. We appreciate your support.
