The shelves started to look a little bare and your gracious hospitality no doubt inspired by great love added just the right touch

Hi Guys!

Your goodies seem to arrive at the perfect moment. The shelves started to look a little bare and your gracious hospitality no doubt inspired by great love added just the right touch.

Chaplain and I have offered to stay until September 2019 to support the next unit. We are a very good team and we know God is supporting us because we’re doing His work.

Please keep us all in prayer. We are continually inspired by YOU.

Respectfully,

I would like to thank you again for sending my husband a care package!

Good morning,

I would like to thank you again for sending my husband a care package! He said he received it today and it had a toothbrush in it  that he really needed (but he failed to tell me he needed that!) haha. Thank you again for all that you all do at operation gratitude! Have a blessed day.
Best,
A.

Know that the tears I cry tonight or tears of joy and appreciation from seeing the kind heart from so many of you back home

To whom it may concern,

Hello my name is Corporal D. L. Today I received one of your care packages. I have been away from my family for 4 1/2 months; this is the first mail that I’ve gotten and it means so much to me to read all the letters and see all the gifts. I wish that I could do more to show my appreciation than a simple letter through email.  Know that the tears I cry tonight or tears of joy and appreciation from seeing the kind heart from so many of you back home. This is why we do what we do thank you so much and with much love I wish you a great holiday, birthday, regular day, week, month, and year. I pray that this day is spent with family and friends and know that we are all grateful for the package that we received.
Sincerely,
 D. L.

Thank you so much for the wonderful package; so much appreciated

Dearest Volunteers and Supporters of Operation Gratitude,
Thank you so much for the wonderful package; so much appreciated.   I am a Marine, went into the Corps out of High School in 1952, married a Marine and got out 1955.  I joined the Marine Corps to relieve a man to fight,  as they did not send women into the war zone.
I was very surprised and happy to be asked to travel on the Honor Flight.   It was a life time experience and honored.
Thank you for thinking of us,
Sgt. Ruth O., USMC

It is awesome to receive so many heartwarming cards and letters from great Americans such as yourselves!

Hello Operation Gratitude!

My name is Sgt B, a Marine currently deployed on the 13th MEU aboard the USS ***** . My fellow Marines and I would like to say thank you for the care package we got in the mail today. It is awesome to receive so many heartwarming cards and letters from great Americans such as yourselves! These packages not only boost morale, but they keep up the good, fighting spirit amongst us when it comes to dividing the great snacks and goodies. Keep doing what you’re doing, it does not go unnoticed.

Respectfully,

Sgt B., J. G.
