Your knit hat has made its way to a soldier in Africa
We absolutely love the knitted scarf included in the Operation Gratitude care package he received while at boot camp
Hi, I am writing to you to extend my greatest appreciation to you and your organization who support our sons/daughters, our troops, our Marines. My son has finished boot camp, and is now at ITB: Infantry Training Battalion in ****. So needless to say he has been very busy. So, on behalf of my son PFC D., thank you very much again for your care, compassion and support. We absolutely love the knitted scarf included in the Operation Gratitude care package he received while at boot camp, as well as every other item included.
We really appreciate your care packages and cards!
Hello Operation Gratitude,
Please tell everyone we said thank you, especially the children
It was my pleasure to write to you after all you guys do for us. I think
it’s great, especially the letters from the kids. I have to say that was
one of my favorite things. As far as what to send in future packages,
everyone differs in what they enjoy haha. Of course sanitary items are
always great, the body wash, tooth paste, lotion, anything of that
nature. Our space is limited when we are deployed so bringing a lot of
supplies is tough and we run out rather quickly. I would love to send a
picture, however connectivity out here makes it difficult, I will
attempt it on the next go around and see if it will work. Thank you for
the gratitude for our service…although I believe it should go more to
the spouses at home; they have the tougher job I say. With their
support, things seem easier to accomplish out here. Again please tell
everyone we said thank you, especially the children. It was cool hearing
the things they enjoy doing. Who knows, maybe one day they will be out
here receiving care packages haha. I hope you all have a great day and a
blessed 2015. Thank you again for your support and gratitude.

Everyone in my squadron really appreciated the time and effort it took for you to create the scarves
To whom it may concern,
I wanted to take the time to thank you for the scarf I received this Christmas. I can’t say specifically where I but it’s much colder in the desert than I thought it would be. It really comes in handy on those cold and windy nights. Mine happened to be desert brown so i can wear it with my uniform and no one seems to notice. Some of the guys received more colorful scarves that weren’t appropriate for wear at “work”. I know of a couple of guys that actually sent theirs home to their wives or kids. I thought that was an excellent idea because it’s surely colder there than it is here and it lets them know that we are always thinking about them. Too often people remember the service member and not the family members that those soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines leave at home. They need your prayers just as much as we do. Sometimes more.
Everyone in my squadron really appreciated the time and effort it took for you to create the scarves. We certainly know that there are countless other things you could be doing and we’re very grateful that you spent some of your efforts on us. Please keep doing what you are doing and don’t forget about us when these wars are over.
With a thankful heart,
You don’t know how much that means to me that there are people thinking of us who are deployed!
To Whom It May Concern,
Thank you so much for sending me a care package while I am on deployment! You don’t know how much that means to me that there are people thinking of us who are deployed!

What you guys do is great and I know all the men and women out here appreciate it very much
I am OS2 (SW) H. onboard ***** and I have received a package from everyone there. I wanted to say thank you for your gratitude and the package. During hard times it’s easy to forget the reason we do what we do. Time away from family is always difficult but little things help tremendously. I have received two written letters from children, one named Brody and the other Joey. Unfortunately, there were no last names or addresses to write them directly but their letters were great! If you know who they are please tell them I said thank you. What you guys do is great and I know all the men and women out here appreciate it very much, again thank you.

Operation Gratitude: Thank you so much for the care package. I am greatly appreciative of the hard work you guys have put into such a heartfelt donation.

To the men and women of Operation Gratitude I would like to thank you for volunteering and keeping all of us serving in your prayers. We really appreciate it. A.H.
