I just wanted to send my thanks to all involved for the Operation Gratitude pack

I just wanted to send my thanks to all involved for the Operation Gratitude package I received the day after Christmas. It lifted my spirits and made it a little bit easier to be away from home during the Holidays. I shared the contents with some of the others here in Mosul and they add their thanks to mine. Thanks again God bless you all with a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year.

It's good to know that people back home are thinking of those serving here

Dear Sirs/Mams,
I would like to convey my thanks to your organizations, the businesses and organizations that supported you, and those who took time out to send their holiday greetings for the support and care packages they sent to myself and members of my unit. It's good to know that people back home are thinking of those serving here during the holiday season. Support given to the soldiers such as the support you gave us, has a positive effect on the soldiers. Contrary to
what may have been reported back home by the media, overall morale here is good and your generous support only helps make it better.
Please pass our thanks on to those who supported your efforts. It was greatly appreciated. We wish all of you a Happy Holiday season.
Yours truly,
1SG R.J.; SFC T.V.

To the People of Operation Gratitude,
I was extremely surprised to get your Christmas package and to find out that there was great stuff in there! I appreciate the time, thoughts and effort all of you put into making a soldier's day. We don't hear the thanks much, but we all sense the spirit of our nation's prayers and love for us out there. We all serve with love for our nation, our families, friends and our God. I will keep you good people in my prayers and may God bless you for your kindness.
Have a Merry Christmas. SPC J.H.

The care packages are arriving at a very steady rate.

On behalf of the Commander and myself, we would like to personally thank you for the support you've given our troopers currently deployed as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom…The care packages are arriving at a very steady rate. I want you to know that the troopers are very grateful and appreciate the packages and support you provide. What you are doing is just one of the many indicators of how America and Americans are supporting us and what we are doing here in Iraq. The troopers are working hard daily to make a difference. Your thoughtfulness during this deployment and through this holiday season brings happiness for all of us who are away from our loved ones and what we call home…Thank you and all the sponsors for their contributions and for keeping us close in your heart and thoughts.
Sincerely, 1SG Z. G.

My men find your care packages very useful.

Hello Everyone: I am currently stationed in Baghdad, Iraq and would like to thank you for everything you do. My men find your care packages very useful. I appreciate your thought and prayers for them. If it was not for the men in my platoon, I would not be who I am now.

I would like to thank you for your support and the many boxes that were sent.

To All Concerned Supporters: On behalf of my platoon and my company, I would like to thank you for your support and the many boxes that were sent. It's very tough for many of these young soldiers to be away from their loved ones during the holidays–as a matter of fact, on any day here. With the gifts and words of encouragement, things are better and comforting. My company has been through alot of mess, and under normal conditions would breakdown; but with support from people like you and this great cast of leadership in my company, our morale stays well above average. Thank you sincerely.
God Bless. SFC D.N.

Your gentle reminder by care packages has warmed our hearts.

Operation Gratitude: Your gentle reminder by care packages has warmed our hearts. A sentence on a piece of paper can't express how thankful we are for your support. Our thoughts turn to your worries, but like you all, we are strong Americans–and for our people, our land, our future and our children's future, we will continue to open the floodgates of freedom in – and let freedom
ring. We love you all. God bless your Angel wings.

It's nice to know we are not forgotten

Dear Operation Gratitude,
Thank you so much for the nice care package! Your thoughtfulness was very unexpected but most appreciated. I know I speak for many others as well when I say thank you. It's nice to know we are not forgotten about after this long. While we are still here in Iraq, it's nice to know our fellow Americans still support us. Please pass our thanks on to your volunteers and Friends. Season's Greetings! With thanks, SGT A.M.

Thank you for the package and thank you for the support.

Operation Gratitude: I am sure I am one voice in many that appreciate what your organization is doing for your service men and women. I am overwhelmed that total strangers would take the time, money and effort to send me a package. It is people like you that makes the hardship here worthwhile. Thank you for the package and thank you for the support. God bless all of you and may you all have a joyous holiday season.
Sincerely yours, SPC M.T.
