Deployed Troops

National Guard

I am an airman of the United States Navy, aboard the USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT. I'm currently quarantined due to COVID-19 in Guam.

On April 25, I received a package containing appreciation letters. I just wanted to say thank you for the support and the letters. Nowadays, with COVID-19 spreading, the only human interactions I have are with my fiance and mother. So hearing from others who appreciate me and what I do is really nice.

Thank you so much for the prayers and wishes.

With much appreciation,
AIR/ V-3


We cannot thank you enough for the generosity, it was overwhelming to see the creativity and thoughtfulness put in some of those letters and all the personal hygiene and comfort treats were exceptional, honestly.

As the Division Chief, I have the privilege of seeing a lot of very special projects come through the State and Operation Gratitude really has been just top-notch. MSG Davis and I thank you personally and from the bottom of our hearts, and on behalf of the Louisiana National Guard, we are appreciative of your generosity.

Be well, and if there is anything we can do for you moving forward please let us know!

There are no words that can be used to say how thankful we are for Operation Gratitude.

We have distributed some of the items thus far and I can say that the smiles and excitement of grown men and women here made it felt like Christmas Day (even in the middle of a Pandemic).

We are indebted to your organization, our public information officer is going to post a picture that we took with your banner onto our Instagram soon. Thanks again for all of the items, your staff members were very nice and extremely professional. You guys are truly a world-class organization.

Healthcare Heroes

Military Families

On behalf of the entire Franciscan Medical Group team, I am writing to express our sincere thanks for the fantastic care packages you donated to our team of nearly 2,000 employees and 1,000 physicians/advanced practice clinicians.

 Your generous gifts came as an incredible surprise and true acknowledgment of the many long hours our healthcare heroes have given in support of our communities.

This situation has been overwhelming and exhausting for all of us, and an unexpected, magnificent gesture from Operation Gratitude was received with great enthusiasm and appreciation.

 I have attached several photos of our team members; despite the masks, you can still “see” their smiles!

Warm Regards,


My husband is deployed and my daughter (who is 5) is struggling intensely with his absence. He is her hero and her very best friend and service is so spotty she can’t even talk to him. Today she got a package with a note and a little bear. It broke my heart to see her so overwhelmed by it.

She completely left her dinner, went straight to bed and snuggled “daddy” all night. This morning she sat him in her daddy’s seat and chatted to him at breakfast just like he was there.

Thank you for this small but substantial blessing. This really is so hard, and I’m just glad someone else understands.

With gratitude from a mother’s heart,
