I asked him why he was so happy he said that he just received a care package from Operation Gratitude
My name is S.J. I was in the Marines for some time. I now work
with the Marines here on **** in Afghanistan. I just want to
tell you that my faith in humanity has been restored because of your
selfless efforts in trying to make the Marines here feel better with a care
package! I came in to work this evening and LCPL S.K. who I work
with and sit beside during our daily work schedule here was very happy
today. I asked him why he was so happy he said that he just received a care
from Operation Gratitude. I just want to say that your package
definitely lifted his morale up today and he was very happy that someone
back there was thinking about him. Please tell all the people that are
involved in this program that they are really making a difference in the
daily function of some of these Marines over here. Some of these guys don’t
receive any packages and let me tell you that what you do is making a BIG
difference, more than you know. I watched him open his package and slowly
go through the box of goods that you made up for him, and let me tell you
that his face lit up like a kid in a candy store! Tell the young kids that
take time and all the effort they put in to this really makes a BIG
difference over here. I have been working over here for 7 years now and
this is the first time I actually had a chance to see the reaction from your
efforts for these Marines here. Please tell everyone there that all the
Marines here are very grateful and very thankful to have people like you
back at home that still think about and care about us even though it has
been 14 years since all this had started. I want to say thank you for
allowing me the chance to see that Marine’s attitude change just because of
a simple act of kindness from some of the greatest people on earth, (All of
you that had any part of this). So please don’t stop what you are doing you
are definitely making the Military men and women over here that is
sacrificing so much of their life a little bit more happier and also letting
them see what it is they are fighting for, great people like you to try to
make this world a better place for everybody. From Camp Leatherneck
Afghanistan to the people of America and Op Gratitude (especially) a big
“THANK YOU” and just know you are making a difference for these men and
women over here. Hope the best for you and your family, please know that
you are greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten for what you do for
us!!!! Thank you again!!!! S.E.J.
Thank you very much for all your support to deployed service members
Dear Operation Gratitude,
Thank you very much for all your support to deployed service members. Some of your packages made it to Camp *** Kuwait where it was much appreciated. Unfortunately, I did not have your email address when we were distributing the care package contents.
Thank you again,
We are truly humbled by your support
Hello and a very belated thank you from **** Alpha Surgical company! Our company is out of ****, but the doctors and nurses are mostly stationed on the east coast. Thank you so much for the candy, and please be sure to thank 5 hour energy as well!!! Thankfully, my box was grape which is my favorite! Gets us through long days around here
I got my package and I’m just sooo happy
Hey there, I got my package and I’m just sooo happy. I don’t know who sent me this but I love that person and I love evrything you guys do. I shared my carepackage with some co-workers but didn’t get any pictures of them. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this package. S.S.
The item I found to be the most appropriate was the inclusion of the pocket version of the US Constitution… how fitting
Dear Operation Gratitude:
I wanted to let you know my package arrived in good order and the ear buds
were a godsend. However, the item I found to be the most appropriate was
the inclusion of the pocket version of the US Constitution… how fitting. I
won’t get on my soapbox, but our Constitution, the one we are sworn to
defend, has lost its preeminence in today’s society. It was fallen from the
status where it rightfully belongs. Thank you for seeing that need and
I’m outbound in May and will be glad to return to the people, places and
inalienable rights we all tend to take for granted until they are lost or
removed from us. Please keep up the good fight lest our freedom becomes a
prize we take our eye off…
It is Patriots like you who make our job a little easier each and every day
Friends at Operation Gratitude,
We have just recently started receiving packages from your organization. Each one is nicely addressed to individual soldiers which really make these gifts personal. The soldiers of the *** Combat Support Hospital greatly appreciate your extended efforts to support the thousands of soldiers who serve our great country. It is Patriots like you who make our job a little easier each and every day. Most of our boxes have come in by one or two at a time so the soldiers have already opened the boxes and carried off the goodies. I will try to get some group shots with your packages but just wanted to let you know how appreciative we all are.
D.S. – Captain
U.S. Army Nurse Corps

It is one thing to receive a general automated letter but handwritten and original means that much more
Dear Operation Gratitude,
Thank you so much for your generosity. Taking the time out of your busy schedules to send soldiers care packages is truly remarkable. Personally, it is a tremendous up lift to know that people back home still care about you while away from the United States.
To Tyler, Corrine, Aria, Ann Kainth and Alexandra, thank you for your letters of kind words and encouragement. It is one thing to receive a general automated letter but handwritten and original means that much more. I’m not sure if you’ll ever see this response email but I hope that you know your efforts do not go unnoticed.
Once again, thank you so very much for this care package, your gifts will absolutely be used. God Bless and take care.
Thank you for supporting us

Thank You for your Support!
