Mail Call

We receive letters every day from Care Package recipients abroad and at home. Check this page often to read their messages to YOU, the American people, who made their Care Packages possible.

I truly appreciate the love and concern that you’ve shown myself and my unit. Thank you very much for the care package.”

Thank you again for your help in making this happen for our vets

Good morning Kelly,

Here are a few photos taken on the last trip with the care boxes in them. I am watching photos from people who are posting them to see if I can find more to send you but wanted to get some sent over to you now so you will have some that you can use.

Thank you again for your help in making this happen for our vets, it really brightens their day and adds a nice welcome package for them as they arrive in D.C.! It is much appreciated!

I am a veteran of WW II and Korean Wars and I received your Knitted scarf in an “Operatios Grattude”box while I was on “Honor Flight” to Washington, DC

I am a veteran of WW II and Korean Wars and I received your Knitted scarf in an “Operatios Grattude”box  while I was on “Honor Flight” to Washington, DC the weekend of September 28-30, 2018.
I am sorry to say that I won’t have much chance to wear it, because  I live in sunny San Diego, California, but I will keep it as a momento of that weekend.
Attached to the scarf is an index card with a message thanking me for my service from Joceen, Elm School, Grade 3.  On the back of the card is a name and address
B.C. ********. .  If you know these people, would you thank them for me.
If any would like to write to me like a Pen Pal, I would like it. I am  a white male, 92 years old,single,live alone in a second floor studio Apt. no elevator a staircase of 15 steps to go up and whenever I go anywhere.  I still drive and my Drivers Licence is good until 2023. I hope to be around until it expires.I am:

Thanks again for thinking of me,  E.

I could hardly believe my eyes when the mail came in the other day!

Dear Operation Gratitude Team,
Thank you so much for the care packages. I’m the officer in charge of a maintenance unit down range and all 212 of my men and women have received care packages from you. I could hardly believe my eyes when the mail came in the other day! The beanie babies are a huge hit! Everyone was feeling nostalgic when they got them, one of the monkey beanie babies has even taken a few flights on some combat missions since he arrived haha! The snacks and hygiene items are fantastic too. There were lots of smiles around the unit when boxes were being opened and letters were being read. Everyone is super grateful for your kindness and support.
Thank you, from my team to yours,
Capt S. M.

Your organization is doing a wonderful thing

Hello,

We recently had several nice ladies come out to our department with gratitude bags. It really meant a lot to us and the goodies inside were very much appreciated. Your organization is doing a wonderful thing.
I would like to recommend the Brooklyn Park Fire Department for receiving the bags. They are a very busy department and are very understaffed. Brooklyn Park does a lot with very little. They have 3 shifts with 7 guys on each shift making 21 full time firefighters and they also have 2 inspectors and 1 Captain.
Thank you again for everything.
Regards,

Jon O.

Thank you for your kindness!

E. T. S. says “Thanks so much for all these thoughtful items
you’ve sent to me! I’ll put them to good use!  Thank you for  your kindness!”

We planned to push some of the packages out to locations where Soldiers don’t have as much access to some of the items that were sent

Dear Ms. South,

Thank you for the care package full of snacks and hygiene items. We planned to push some of the packages out to locations where Soldiers don’t have as much access to some of the items that were sent. As with myself, the guys and gals are so appreciative for your love and support. Again, thank you and your organization, and I pray that God blesses you for your generosity.

Grace and Peace,
