Although you may or may not know, the smallest gifts or thoughts mean the world to soldiers deployed

On behalf of the American Red Cross Team 32 (Red Angels) and the soldiers of Afghanistan we thank you for your constant consideration and support.  Due to outstanding citizens like you all we are able to service troops all across Afghanistan.  The troops of Afghanistan are able to see and feel the care and support, as well as receive a bit of home in each package.  Although you may or may not know, the smallest gifts or thoughts mean the world to soldiers deployed.  We thank you significantly for the packages, warm greetings of love, and support.  Thank you, SPC Na M

Your generosity in support of our Soldiers as they are deployed is greatly appreciated

On behalf of the 163d Military Intelligence Battalion,***** Battlefield Surveillance Brigade, thank you for your donation.  Your generosity in support of our Soldiers as they are deployed is greatly appreciated.  With warm regards, LTC M.J.  and CSM M.A.R.

Your support and generosity has been instrumental in keeping their morale high and allowed them to focus on their mission

·         The command group wishes to express our appreciation for the support you have shown our Soldiers during their most recent deployment to Operation Enduring Freedom.  We know you are very busy and we appreciate the time you have spent in sending our Soldiers a card, or care packages, a phone call or visited with them on Skype.

  • Caring for military families has become a national priority with the launch of the White House’s ”Strengthening Our Military Families” initiative and the related “joining Forces campaign.
  • Our Soldiers missed valuable time away from their friends and family members during several holidays throughout their deployment to include: Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Martin Luther King Day, and Presidents day so your support and generosity has been instrumental in keeping their morale high and allowed them to focus on their mission.

  •  Letter also signed by 1LT N.J.H., CSM S.T., COL D.L.K., CAM A.D., COL M.D.C.

While packages are filled with tangible items, they are valued more because they are a reminder that while we are far from home, we are not forgotten

On behalf of the Troops, I want to express our heartfelt gratitude for your generosity.  Your care package means so much to so many.  Every act of kindness is magnified for us when we are so far from home.  The simplest gesture brings us joy, and inspires us to persevere and reminds us that what we do here is truly appreciated by our fellow citizens.  When we’re deployed so far from home it is gifts like yours that help to make the days more pleasant and the time passes quickly.  While packages are filled with tangible items, they are valued more because they are a reminder that while we are far from home, we are not forgotten.  Once again, on behalf of all of us, I assure you of our prayers, best wishes, and heartfelt gratitude.  Sincerely yours, CHP (CDR) J.J.G.

To you and your sponsors, thanks for being true red-blooded patriots

Thanks so much for the care packages that you sent during this deployment.  My platoon and I  were very grateful for the organizations that still support the troops, and we were really blessed from Operation Gratitude.  To you and your sponsors, thanks for being true red-blooded patriots.  We appreciate your support.  God bless, 1LT W.P.

The included words of care were visibly heartening to them

All of us at *** , here at ****  Kuwait, wanted to personally let you know how grateful we are you took the time to send your kind package of support and wonderful goodies.  It certainly is nice to be remembered while we’re overseas during this Holiday Season.  We’ve shared the kind words included and package content with the other members of our team.  The included words of care were visibly heartening to them.  We all deeply appreciate your support and well wishes.  CW3 R.M.,  et al.

There were so many goodies it was hard to choose, but I smiled all the while

By way of introduction, I am LOTC A.B.  I’m currently serving in Southwest Asia (SWA).  Recently, to my surprise, I received a care package from you guys and I can truly say it was uplifting.  There were so many goodies it was hard to choose, but I smiled all the while.  I selected two I items and shared with the rest of the team; their spirits were uplifted as well.  Items disappeared quickly but to see the members of my team share in the delight of each other’s goodies was truly rewarding.  So I want to say, thank you!  It is June; the weather has been hot but had not peaked.  Last week  the temperature hovered around 118 degrees F.  “The weekend cooled off a bit between 110-115 degrees (not that we could tell the difference).   Not sure if the Axe body wash you sent will keep a good smell on the Soldiers long in the sweltering heat.  We are appreciative for what you do.  Your work may go unnoticed or unrecognized to the American public but not to the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guard, and civilians deployed around the world.  From time-to-time we need a little boost and you have and continue to provide that boost, at the right moment.  For that, again, I say thank you.  May God continue to bless Operation Gratitude for what you do and your families for supporting you and what you’re doing.  Thank you.  LT A.B.
