Your organization has truly shown a Can Do attitude with such a large undertaking
To Operation Gratitude,
Thank you so much for your support of Soldiers. I received a box from you today here in *** , Afghanistan. My Infantry Battalion has been tasked with maintaining security in a very large and very dangerous region of Afghanistan. It is amazing to see all of the effort and care your organization and volunteers put into this. Thank you for such a nice box of snacks and items. ***** Infantry Regiment is known as the “Can Do” Battalion because there is nothing too hard for them to do. Your organization has truly shown a Can Do attitude with such a large undertaking.
Actually, just getting anything in the mail is awesome
You brought joy to many Soldiers during the holiday Season when we are separated from the ones we love
On behalf of LTC L.H. and the Soldiers of 1*** Support Battalion. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the help you provided with putting together Care Packages and or letters for the USA service members here in the Sinai. The Soldiers of task Force S*** and *** Support Battalion greatly appreciated the gifts and the efforts made by you and all those who assisted you. You brought joy to many Soldiers during the holiday Season when we are separated from the ones we love. Your efforts were a great reminder that those of us who are serving away from home during this time are not forgotten. Point of Contact for this is CH (CPT) T.C.B. Jr.
As I read your letter and receive your packages, I smile!
I am so grateful and thankful of knowing you support the members of the US Armed Forces. It’s my honor to serve and protect you which I love to do. I arrived in Afghanistan in late July and will be here until May 2013. I think about our freedom and what it will be like if we didn’t have any. Whoa! That will be a nightmare as like other countries. Yes, I know many things are taken for granted but Freedom shouldn’t be one of them. We as American should be thankful for our freedoms in which we should get along and works together, peacefully. But that is a dream we only can wish for. As I read your letter and receive your packages, I smile! I know that not all Americans take freedom for granted. So I thank you for support, love, and friendships. Without you our morale would be down and lost. So please continue supporting us, the US Armed Forces in every way possible or everyway you see fit. If you would like to drop us a line by mail or email, both addresses are listed below. If you would like to know more about me, my unit, or my job, I would be glad to share with you. Take care and please keep us in your prayers. Thank you very much. I would like to ask your permission to add the letters and cards that you send my book, “Letters from the Heart”. This book is a collection of letters that receive from family, friends and supporters like you during my deployment. Only the base of the letters is added. (Your home address will not be shown.) If not, I understand. SSG L.P.
You have gone “above and beyond the call of duty”
Ladies and Gentlemen:
It was all nice to have stuff, but the Hygiene pack was especially helpful
To All the People at Operation Gratitude,
Thank you for the package of goodies. It was all nice to have stuff, but the Hygiene pack was especially helpful. I set it up as my back up hygiene pack to grab and go when I get a short fused set of orders. The short toothbrush and the face wipes got a lot of use. Even the lint roller works well for cleaning up the sleeping bag. Thanks again for the well thought out little kit.
Sincerely, G.G. , Cpt, USMC
Your thoughtfulness has brought yet another Soldier a smile and a connection to home
I just received a care package from all of you at Operation Gratitude and I wanted to say thank you for your support and prayers. I am always amazed at the support and generosity of our communities who want to make sure all who serve in our Military are assured that they are still thought about and not forgotten after 10 years of war. Thank you to all of you who volunteer your time and donate all the items you send out. Your thoughtfulness has brought yet another Soldier a smile and a connection to home, Thank You. SGT D.W.
It is heartwarming and truly appreciated to receive your kind gestures when deployed so far away from our great Country and home
I wanted to take a moment to write and thank you for your personal and team support of the American Servicemen and Servicewomen who are scattered around the globe in support of our Nation’s interests. It is heartwarming and truly appreciated to receive your kind gestures when deployed so far away from our great Country and home. You will be interested to know that the Hershey candy bars that were included in the boxes that your organization sent traveled with ten Soldiers to the country of Kazakhstan where our Soldiers will be working with the Kazakhstan military. Being a former Soviet block country, they may have never experienced Hershey candy but I’m sure they will enjoy it. The fact that our unit is from **** and two members live in or around Hershey ****, makes it even better. Again, thanks so much for what you do and please pass my best wished to all the supporters. LTC G.D.
