Dear Operation Gratitude, About a month ago our unit received @ 100 care packages from you. I distributed them across the camps in the location where we are.
They were a huge hit. Afterward there were a number of boxes left over in our MWR recreation space. I took some of the notes in them, and placed them on the tables in our dining facility to brighten the day of our Warriors.
Thank you again for fulfilling our request and making such a difference to deployed service members abroad.
I responded to a teacher, Mrs. Cahill, whose students had written some of the encouraging letters.
It takes a lot of effort, generosity and logistical coordination to do what you do. I hope you know it’s worth it. I also think it’s strengthening the fabric of our nation. You are helping unite Americans and to inspire them to press on together. That’s noble and will bear fruit in future generations.
God’s blessings to you all!
A big THANK YOU for the box of goodies I received from your group this past Labor Day weekend at the Honor Flight out of Wausau. It was unexpected and great to get. I am almost finished eating all the goodies and sorry I don’t have any pictures but I want you to know what a thoughtful gesture it was.
Dear Operation Gratitude,
Heartfelt thanks for all of your caring ways. The care package was very well put together. The love that went into it is very evident. I received my care package at the end of my Honor Flight.
Thank you very much!
Thank you for your gracious gift at Follow the Flag in Pleasant Grove. Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated. I want to share this quote though I don’t know who said it:
“We sleep secure in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.”
We thank God for our rough men who love our country.
I was almost going to cry when I realized that I received this care package (I never received any as of today)
I really do appreciate your care, I was almost going to cry when i realized that I received this care package (I never received any as of today), i thought i would never get one 🙂 Best time ever when i realized you all do care. Thank you!! S. S.
Thank you so much for the packages. Here are a few pictures. All the boxes
didn’t arrive yet so I will be sending more. We really appreciate it.
I haven’t seen all my brothers and sisters smile and laugh like they did today and it is all thanks to you and the many wonderful people in your organization
Thank you so much for these care packages. We were at a mid-point slump in regards to morale and that all changed when a truck full of care packages arrived at my unit. It was amazing to see everyone’s mood change and watch all our people smiling as they open their box. I mean everyone, even our quiet kid who keeps to himself was genuinely happy and reading his cards out loud. We had another individual receive a card written in Spanish from a 10yr old boy who immigrated into the United States. The recipient read it with the help of those of us that speak Spanish and was extremely grateful to have received that letter.
To know that there are so many people who would come together and donate items, time and energy to make these packages possible is truly heartwarming. I haven’t seen all my brothers and sisters smile and laugh like they did today and it is all thanks to you and the many wonderful people in your organization.

I absolutely loved all the gifts and the notes from the kids warmed my heart thinking my daughter back home will write these in a few years. Thank you so much operation gratitude for reminding me of home.
Just wanted to say thank you. My unit received your care packages today and the troops where extremely grateful! What your organization does is amazing and makes a huge difference for our morale!
