The impact of an Operation Gratitude Care Package is clear from the emails we receive from troops:
There are times, especially with everything going on in the news, that service members can feel forgotten and insignificant. I want to share that this organization has just shown 30 service members that we are indeed not forgotten and that the American people are still supporting us and our efforts here and abroad.
Today was my daughter’s first day of pre-school, and I was really in a low spot just missing her and all the special moments we won’t get to share this year because I’m away. This care package really lifted me up. Thank you so much, and if I could hug you all I would.
I cannot express in words what your care packages do for our soldiers. The letters I received today brought joy to an otherwise lonely heart. I’ve never felt so proud to be a soldier in the US military.
