I was surprised to have been sent the package, but it is duly appreciated

Good afternoon,

I wanted to reach out and thank Operation Gratitude for sending me this package. I serve in the Air Force as a Civil Engineer and I am currently deployed overseas. I was surprised to have been sent the package, but it is duly appreciated. Thank you again.

Sincerely

Your public servant always.

I CANNOT EXPRESS HOW MUCH MY TEAMMATES AND I APPRECIATE YOUR KINDNESS AND THOUGHTFULNESS

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN,

MY NAME IS R.L. AND I AM A DEPUTY WITH THE PINAL COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE. I JUST WANTED TO SEND YOU ALL A BIG THANKS FOR THE AWESOME AND VERY USEFUL CARE PACKS THAT WERE RECENTLY DROPPED OFF AT OUR SUB-STATION IN SAN TAN VALLEY.

ON TOP OF BEING EXTREMELY THOUGHTFUL, EVERYTHING IN THESE PACKS WILL NO DOUBT COME IN HANDY AT SOME POINT DURING OUR DAY TO DAY LIVES AS PATROL DEPUTIES. I CANNOT EXPRESS HOW MUCH MY TEAMMATES AND I APPRECIATE YOUR KINDNESS AND THOUGHTFULNESS.

I HOPE SOMEONE BRIGHTENS YOUR DAY AS MUCH AS YOU HAVE BRIGHTENED OURS

I am beyond excited and grateful

It is so interesting how little things like a card from someone you’ve never met before or a clipping from the funnies in the Sunday paper can strike you with a surprisingly emotional response

Dear friends at Operation Gratitude,

We received your generous care package today. Thank you so much for the time, energy, and resources that went into it. It is so interesting how little things like a card from someone you’ve never met before or a clipping from the funnies in the Sunday paper can strike you with a surprisingly emotional response. I saw your card in the box that asked for a photo. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to take ANY photos in our location at the risk that they might end up on social media. It might seem strict, but really it is important for operational security reasons. The bad guys are smart and can use our social media to exploit us. So better to be careful. Regardless, we are deeply grateful for your kind gift. Keep up the fantastic work and know that it has a real impact on the lives of soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen over here.

Very respectfully,

Lt N.K., USAF

I think he read each of those letters two or three times and smiled just as big each time.

Operation Gratitude,

Thank you so much for the care packages that you sent out to our team! Your thoughtfulness brightened our day! I’ve attached a few pictures for you – gotta love the smile in the first picture as he reads the student’s letter. (I think he read each of those letters two or three times and smiled just as big each time.)

Please keep up the amazing work – and thank all of your volunteers for us – you all make a difference!
