All in all it was one of the best days in a long time. THANK YOU !

Kevin and Carolyn and Jackie, and all the volunteers and supporters,  My package had letters from :  Kayla D…..Harriett   XXX OOO…Naomi Mc….Marycruz D, Auburn High SchoolToday, I had the opportunity to attend a Super Celebration for Veterans at The Church Of God, in Princeton, West Virginia. It was one of the finest gatherings that I have ever had the privilege to attend. There must have been at least 500 veterans and their family members in attendance. There were about 15 WW2 guys, with one gentleman who recently celebrated birthday #102..  We got to hear some great speakers, and were treated to songs provided by a group of 2nd and 3rd grade students from a local elementary school. Then we sat down to a fine breakfast of sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy, which were provided by local businesses, and served by high school and college students.This annual event is scheduled on the first Saturday in November. And they must have had over 100 volunteers who pulled this event together. There were a few lines while you waited for the care package, but that gave you a chance to chat with the people around you. All in all it was one of the best days in a long time. THANK YOU !  B.H., American Legion Post 311, Pembroke, Virginia

Thank you so much for the package and a special thank you to Makela for her letter

My 94 year old father, L.C., is at Lambert International Airport St. Louis MO waiting for his Honor flight to take off. He signed up with the Merchant Marines and after leaving them, was drafted into the Army.  There are a couple items missing from the picture. He took the two Red Velvet protein bars with him to snack on. I don’t know what he did with the package of Girl Scout cashew pieces with salt and pepper or the bag of Peanut Butter M & M’s.  Thank you so much for the package and a special thank you to Makela for her letter.  M.C.L  Proud Daughter of a WWII Veteran

This experience was one of healing and truly feeling that the veterans of our Country are loved, supported and appreciated

I received a wonderful box of items from your organization during my trip with Old Dominion Honor Flight this past Saturday. Thank you so much for this expression of love and gratitude to me and all of the many veterans and active servicemen you bless.  As a Vietnam Veteran 1968 was a long time ago but still fresh in my memory. This experience was one of healing and truly feeling that the veterans of our Country are loved, supported and appreciated.  With much appreciation,  A.E.W, Gloucester, Va

It is heartwarming to know that although being received home from Vietnam in such a despicably insensitive manner, there is now a movement to welcome home All Veterans

Dear Volunteers and Supporters,  Thank you for the Package received during my Honor Flight on November 2, 2019. The goodies lovingly packed inside will (or rather are) being enjoyed by my wife and I. It is heartwarming to know that although being received home from Vietnam in such a despicably insensitive manner, there is now a movement to welcome home All Veterans. I thank you for the renewed respect for your Veterans, soldiers, protectors, which your group is exhibiting.   We are about to get back to where we should have been 60 years ago.  Sincerely,  G.E., Vietnam Veteran, U.S.A.F., 1966 – 1970

Thank you for not forgetting about us and that we are still here

I wanted to take a moment to thank all the volunteers for their generosity. I received my box after returning from R&R (I’m deployed for 12 months) and can not tell you how surprised I was to receive your box. I can honestly say that it was so wonderful to receive healthy snacks (nuts and protein bars) for a change as well as multiple hand made items like the hat and bracelet that I have already put to good use. Please continue volunteering your time because it means the world to me. This is my second tour in three years and there are times I feel like my efforts don’t matter and that the people back home have forgotten about this 18 year long war. Thank you for not forgetting about us and that we are still here. I am at a small outstation by myself and one other Soldier from my unit and this is the first care package we received that wasn’t from family or friends.

You efforts are above and beyond and I am very thankful

Operation Gratitude  Upon my return to work I discovered your special Care Package and wanted you to know how pleased I am that you took the time, care and expense to reach out to me.  You efforts are above and beyond and I am very thankful.  Best regards to you and all those that took time out of your busy lives to bring a smile to me and thousands of others. Sincerely  R.R.  9th Infantry Division, Vietnam 1967  101st Airborne Division, Vietnam 1968

Keep up the great work, and continue to do amazing things!

Thank you, everyone, for putting these care packages together! They mean so much to veterans, especially the ones without a safe place to lay their heads at night. Your gratitude is especially important to the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guard, and civilians currently working to maintain our freedom and way of life. I have attached a picture of myself with all the goodies I received in the care package. Keep up the great work, and continue to do amazing things!
