I’ve heard the soldiers say many times these packages help them feel like they are doing something worthwhile

My name is Lieunenant A.S. and I am a Cavalry Medical Provider forward deployed to a tiny patrol base in the middle east. You don’t know me but myself and my troop received your care packages through Operation Gratitude. I want you to know how much we appreciate your thoughtfulness. Some of the soldiers don’t get any packages so it means a lot to be able to give them things for Christmas. We don’t have a place to go for comfort products or hygiene supplies so they all come from care packages like yours. It means so much to us to have the support of people back home especially during the holiday season. I’ve heard the soldiers say many times these packages help them feel like they are doing something worthwhile. You have helped make that possible so thank you.

Merry Christmas! A.S.
