I want to personally thank everyone for the boxes of goods. I am on the USS ***** and our supplies are a little strained right now. I’m sure I don’t have to explain what’s going on because it’s all over the news where we are. In the box there was a purple scarf knitted by Cindy D. from *****. I would appreciate it if someone would contact her to tell her I said, “Thank you very much”. My wife knits, and it brings back memories of home. I am very eagerly looking forward to going home because I had my first child, a boy, born on March 17th. I haven’t met him yet, and will be missing the first 3 months of his life. Please pray for our safety , and even more so that we don’t get extended again. I’d rather not miss more than 3 months of my baby’s life. God bless you all.

It is truly an honor to defend and support the fine people of our country, especially people like you
My unit and I have received your care package, and we wanted to thank you for your efforts. We truly appreciate the support! We are very busy, but we strive to do our best every day. Our recent missions have been recognized on a global level (if you’ve been watching the news you’ve probably heard about some of our sorties), and little things like getting letters and care packages help keep us focused. It is truly an honor to defend and support the fine people of our country, especially people like you. I am a weapons team chief. We are real people, doing a real job, supporting a real mission. We all appreciate everything you have done to support us. Thank you so much!

You raise the morale of my soldiers

Thanks for thinking of us
Dear Operation Gratitude,
I am temporarily assigned to the USS **** (steaming in the Persian Gulf) as a catapult officer getting my qualifications. One of your boxes was on a desk in the admin department when I was making copies. I wanted to specifically thank you for the Sunday comics you put in. I’ve always enjoyed reading the funnies and appreciate the short break in the day they provide – even more when I’m on a ship. I know the sailors greatly appreciate all the other notes, food, and useful items that were also in the box. Thanks for thinking of us. From the newspapers it looks like the box came from Los Angeles so I hope all is well back in sunny California.
It feels good knowing we have a lot of support back on the home front
Good afternoon OPERATION GRATIUDE,
I am T.F., , a sailor USS ***** currently deployed. I
received a care package from your organization and I would like to thank you guys. You guys aren’t obligated to send anything to sailors and soldiers ove seas but you guys make it happen. It feels good knowing we have a lot of support back on the home front. I would also like to know if there is any way I can write back to the kids/students/vets personally to thank them?
It’s a morale thing and we love it
It was quite a surprise and very much appreciated
It really helps our morale out here knowing and being reassured that people back home appreciate what we are doing
They were so excited and loved everything in the boxes
I just wanted to Thank you so much for the care packages we just received them today. I surprised all the guys they didn’t know I put their names in they were so excited and loved everything in the boxes, I am sorry we cannot send any pictures we do not get very good internet at our location in fact we just had internet hooked up and at this time not allowed to download pictures or anything. Our location is very bare and not a lot here. But we all appreciate the care packages that were sent, and thank you for your support. It means a lot to us. G.C.
