First of all thank you for the box

it was well received by myself and other troops in my unit. We are the ones who are thankful for you and others who didn't forget us over here away from family and friends. I also would like to thank all my brothers and sisters in arms who went before me and stood before
me wherever they were: Vietnam, Korea, WWII, Panama, Desert Shield, Desert Storm, etc. Yours truly, SSG M.T.

We appreciate the support

Thank you so much for the care package.

I really appreciate it. The package came at a very good time. My spirits were a little low because I hadn't received any mail for several days from back home and it really lifted my morale. Thank you so much once again! PS2 W.G.

I was taken aback by the quality and amount of items you all sent.

I received a package here in the Middle East with yourself as one of the donors. It certainly brought me a great deal of joy to see that the American people support their military. The items enclosed were all extremely useful. I was taken aback by the quality and amount of items you all sent. Thanks for the support and God bless. Maj. J.R.

I would just like to thank all of you who had a part in putting together the box

I would just like to thank all of you who had a part in putting together the box I received over here in Iraq. I am a SSgt in the U.S. Air Force Security Forces from Texas. I have been here since October 27, 2003 at an air base in northern Iraq. I just want to thank all of ya'll personally for the nice care package for the Holiday Season. Once again, THANK YOU very much from the bottom of my heart……SSgt H. S., USAF

Dear Operation Gratitude:Thank you for the package.

We really appreciate your thoughtfulness. I'm in the *** National Guard and my unit was activated in Feb. 03 and we got to Iraq in April. We don't plan to be home until next spring. It's been a long, difficult year, one that has really challenged us in several aspects. But we are alive, healthy and optimistic. This time of year is going to be especially hard, but I know we'll make it through. It is acts of kindness, such as yours, that will make this holiday season more tolerable. Thank you for your support! We'll be home soon. Merry Christmas! SPC D.M.

To Everyone with Operation Gratitude:
