I Am a Sailor onboard the USS ***** , and recently I was reassured by an act of kindness. Operation gratitude is
A new concept to me, as this is my 3rd deployment, and my first to receive such a thoughtful gift. I wanted to express my gratitude for all of your volunteers, staff, and those who took the time to send my shipmates and I all of these care packages, which all came as a complete surprise. For those of us who come from loving homes, or broken ones, you provided a moment in which we all could feel at home.
Merry Christmas and God Bless you all.
